Hartz Campaign Focuses on Flea and Tick Prevention
Pest control experts predict that 2018 will experience a severe flea and tick season, due to highly fluctuating weather patterns that have allowed these parasites to survive throughout the winter and continue their life cycles. To help prevent the frequent pet concerns that arise because of these pesky passengers, The Hartz Mountain Corporation has launched the Help Us Help Them initiative—a buy one, give one donation outreach program.
The Help Us Help Them campaign will donate one Hartz Flea and Tick product to needy cats and dogs at shelters across America for every Hartz UltraGuard Pro topical drop product that is purchased by consumers from April 1 through May 31. The Help Us Help Them initiative impacts the comfort and adoptability of needy cats and dogs with the help of consumers who regularly purchase the Hartz UltraGuard Pro topical products, said company officials.
Hartz UltraGuard Pro topical drops provide dogs with fast-acting, effective monthly protection against fleas, Deer and Brown Dog ticks, and flea eggs that can cause pet and home infestations. Hartz UltraGuard Pro starts killing fleas within 15 minutes and effectively prevents re-infestations for one month, according to the company.
“Monthly flea and tick prevention is essential to the overall health of cats and dogs,” said Gregg Herman, director of marketing, at The Hartz Mountain Corporation in Secaucus, N.J. “The Help Us Help Them program runs during the onset of spring months, when it is important to protect family pets before the active season for fleas and ticks arrives. Because these parasites can also transmit diseases to humans, prevention methods are also beneficial to the people and these prospective pets they will share their homes with.”
