EAGLE, IDAHO, March 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PetAction™ Plus, a new flea and tick product for dogs and cats, launched today in stores nationwide including Walmart and Sam's Club. PetAction Plus contains the same active ingredients as a top selling brand – but sells for a fraction of the cost – making it a more affordable option for pet owners.
"Too often pet owners opt out of a regular flea and tick preventative for their dog or cat because it's too expensive for their household to justify," said Glen Moore, vice president of PetAction Plus. "We're excited to be able to offer PetAction Plus, a high-quality flea and tick treatment that finally provides the same ingredients as a leading brand – at a price that makes sense to consumers."
PetAction Plus for Dogs: (MSRP: $28.99 for 3-month supply)
Compare to Frontline Plus for Dogs ($44.99+ for 3-month supply)
- Available for small, medium, large and x-large dogs (6-132+ lbs.)
- Can be used on breeding, pregnant or lactating dogs, and puppies 8 weeks or older
PetAction Plus for Cats: (MSRP: $28.99 for 3-month supply)
Compare to Frontline Plus for Cats ($44.99+ for 3-month supply)
- Should only be used on cats and kittens weighing more than 1.5 lbs
Fast-acting, long-lasting and waterproof, PetAction Plus uses active ingredients Fipronil, which kills adult fleas, ticks and chewing lice – and (S)-Methoprine, which prevents flea eggs and larvae from developing into biting adults, thereby breaking the flea life cycle.
Fleas are associated with a number of health concerns for your pet. They can transmit tapeworms and cause allergy driven dermatitis, a common dog and cat skin disease. If left untreated, pets exposed to fleas can develop anemia, or a low red blood cell count. Ticks are found throughout the United States and are notorious for transmitting Lyme disease. They also can transmit Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, tularemia and canine tick paralysis.
"Although most people like to define 'flea and tick season' as the Spring and Summer months when the weather is generally warmer, the truth is that these pesky parasites can wreak havoc on your pet, your family and the environment where you live all year long," said Veterinarian Dr. Liz Hanson, DVM. "I am thrilled when I see new products like PetAction Plus come to market that will enable pet owners with better and cost-effective options to protect their pet's health and well-being on a daily basis."
PetAction Plus should be part of any complete program to help keep your pet free of fleas, ticks and other pests. Please consult your veterinarian for additional recommendations.
