Perrigo Animal Health Unveils Flea, Tick Products
Perrigo Animal Health, a division of Perrigo Co. plc in Dublin, showcased eight new product SKUs at the 2016 Global Pet Expo: PetArmor Advanced 2 and PetArmor Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs.
PetArmor Advanced 2 flea treatment contains the same active ingredients as Advantage II, imidacloprid and pyriproxyfen, but costs less, according to the company. This monthly flea topical kills all stages of the flea life cycle and works through contact so fleas don’t need to bite to die, which helps prevent flea allergy dermatitis, the company reported. The waterproof formula comes in four application doses per carton and in four weight breaks for dogs and puppies over 7 weeks of age and in two weight breaks for cats and kittens over 8 weeks of age.
PetArmor Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs contains the same active ingredients as Scalibor Protector Band for Dogs, but costs less than vet prices, Perrigo reported. The waterproof, long-lasting collar contains deltamethrin to protect against fleas and ticks, including those that might carry Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. With two collars each providing six months of protection, dogs are protected year-round from fleas and ticks, the company said. The collars come in small and large sizes for dogs and puppies 12 weeks of age and older.
