New Time-Release Technology and Proprietary Design for Canine Flea & Tick Collar
Promika, LLC announces the launch of the new and improved Salvo™ Flea and Tick Collar for Dogs which features a proprietary Triple Clasp System with a Peel-Away Comfort Strip. The new Salvo Flea & Tick Collar also includes an improved formulation with time-release technology.
The updated collar design comes as a response from the company after receiving customer feedback to determine how to improve the collar's performance and durability.
Salvo’s proprietary Triple Clasp System employs three clasps to lock the collar securely, so it stays put and won't slide or stretch. While the collar remains snug, it’s elasticity is intended to give in case the dog becomes entangled.
The Peel-Away Comfort Strip feature provides a smooth surface to reduce irritation while delivering around the clock protection to the pet. The improved formula uses time-release technology to work with the dog’s natural oils to distribute the active ingredient.
"We are constantly looking for ways to improve our products and our processes. Our customers provided us with valuable feedback about flea and tick collars that we were able to use to develop a collar with superior durability that's also comfortable for the pet,” says Calvin Leach, Executive Vice President, Sales & Strategic Accounts for Promika.
The active ingredient in the Salvo Flea & Tick Collar provide superior and continuous head-to-tail protection against fleas and ticks for dogs. One purchase of Salvo provides dog owners with two collars, providing up to one year of flea and tick prevention.
Promika, LLC announces the launch of ShieldTec® Plus for Dogs. ShieldTec Plus controls fleas, ticks, mites and mosquitoes, prevents eggs and larvae from becoming adults and also repels pests for up to 4 weeks. It provides an economical alternative to VetGuard Plus® for Dogs.
ShieldTec Plus for Dogs contains two proven active ingredients: permethrin and pyriproxyfen, the same active ingredients used in VetGuard Plus for Dogs. Manufactured in the United States, ShieldTec Plus can help keep dogs happy and healthy.
“Keeping your pets healthy starts with treating for fleas and ticks,” said Mike Tweedy, President, Promika, “and ShieldTec Plus for Dogs offers an affordable, effective alternative to other flea and tick products.”
According to Tweedy, flea and tick treatments should be used year round to kill fleas and ticks and continue to prevent infestations. “In many areas of the country, it doesn’t become cold enough for long enough to kill fleas and immature stages of fleas,” he said.
“In addition to regular application of a topical such as ShieldTec for Dogs, if you have an infestation you should vacuum and clean your dog’s sleeping area and any other inside area where your dog spends time and also treat any outside areas with an approved product.”
ShieldTec Plus for Dogs should only be used on dogs over 12 weeks of age and weighing more than 5 pounds. Choose the appropriate ShieldTec Plus for Dogs size based on your dog’s weight. Do not use ShieldTec Plus for Dogs on cats.
Promika LLC launches ZoGuard Plus, a new flea and tick preventive treatment. ZoGuard Plus contains fipronil and (s)-methoprene, the same two active ingredients used in Frontline Plus®.
ZoGuard Plus works quickly to kill adult fleas and ticks. It breaks the flea cycle by preventing flea eggs and larvae from maturing. ZoGuard Plus provides the same excellent flea and tick protection as Frontline Plus at a better value.
“ZoGuard Plus offers a more affordable alternative to Frontline Plus for flea and tick control,” said Randy Canady, president and chief executive officer. “It is not difficult to control fleas, ticks, and other pet pests. A simple topical application of ZoGuard Plus, applied monthly, can keep your pet healthy and happy for less cost.”
ZoGuard Plus is available for small, medium, large and extra-large dogs and for cats. Always use the proper dosage based on your pet’s size.
