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.
