At one time I had a dog named "Red." She was a cross between a Beagle (her Mom) and a Poodle (her Dad "Shadow"). I used the product "Front Line" to get rid of fleas and ticks, which made both her life and my life much better.
Red liked to spend a lot of time outdoors, but she liked to come indoors at night. I live out in the country in Northwest Arkansas, where there are a lot of trees, ticks, fleas, chiggers, etc. Sometimes I can end up getting a tick with the simple act of walking across my yard from my pickup to my porch.
I used an excellent product my Mom originally used with Shadow called "Front Line" that eliminates the flea and tick problem. Front Line made it possible for Red to be able to spend time outdoors in a tick and flea-infested yard, yet remained completely un-bothered by them. Front Line made Red's quality of life much better than it would have been otherwise. Front Line also made MY quality of life better, since Red would come indoors at night and jump up on my bed when I would go to bed at night.
I was recently offered the opportunity to become a PetMeds.Com advertiser and I was thrilled to see that PetMeds.Com offers the Front Line product for sale on their site at a discount.
