Throughout these pages I'll look to review a range of products, covering areas such as 'men's grooming', 'travel accessories' and 'fragrances'. Im often asked what products I use myself, so hopefully I can give you fella's some helpful insights into some wash bag essentials, or maybe even offer some 'gift inspiration' to all you bewildered 'other halves'!
Ive spent the last few weekends touring with the lovely folks from Frontline - top family brand of Flea and Tick protection products for your dog and cat. We've been lucky enough to meet some of the most beautiful canines across the country at events such as 'Paws in the Park' in Kent and 'All About Dogs' in Essex and we've been working hard to educate pet owners about the importance of regularly protecting their pets from these annoying little parasites!
With the help of Frontline Vets Myfanwy, Christina, Andrea and Geoffrey and our huge inflatable house complete with garden we've been talking to hundreds of pet owners about Frontline's latest innovation 'Frontline Plus'!
Why do we need to protect our Pets?
Ticks not only cause irritation and inflammation but are also second only to Mosquitoes in transmitting infectious diseases to humans and animals such as Lyme Disease. They can also transmit canine babesiosis to dogs, which can be fatal.
How does Frontline help?
'Frontline Plus' contains the active ingredient fipronil. Once the product is applied, the fipronil is stored in the oil (sebaceous) glands in your pet's skin. It then self-distributes continuously to your pet's hair and skin through the hair follicles. Fleas or ticks that jump onto your pet are killed by direct contact. The other ingredient, (s)-methoprene, kills fleas eggs and larvae and prevents pupal development. (s)-methoprene prevents fertile flea eggs being laid, preventing reinfestation of your pet and contamination of your home environment.
Treating your pet with Frontline Plus is easy with the 'spot on' style pipette, applied directly to the pet's skin by parting the fur behind the shoulder blades or back of the neck (so that it can't be licked off). You just squeeze and empty the contents onto the skin!
We recommend you use Frontline Plus every 4 weeks to protect your pet.
