Dead Bugs: It’s What We Do

PetArmor is all about killing bugs.

Big bugs, little bugs, green bugs, purple bugs. We don’t care, we just want them dead and for them to stop, well, bugging your pet.

We feel very strongly around here that all bugs and parasites that pester, sicken and generally annoy pets should die. Like dead die. It’s what gets us out of bed in the morning. That, and the well-known toaster waffles we can smell coming from the kitchen of the big house we all live in together.

We have ticks and fleas pretty well covered – with PetArmor, fleas and ticks have effectively been given notice to get their little buggy affairs in order, as we will soon be raining sweet, sweet drops of death down upon them.

I am sure in the grand scheme of things these bugs must serve some higher purpose, but I’m at a loss as to what it is. All they do is suck blood, reproduce and spread disease and itchy misery. If it were up to me (no offense, Mother Nature) they could be dispensed with altogether and I would be perfectly content. I’m pretty sure your pets would agree with me on this one.

Grossness and disease-carrying aside, you can’t question their success and hardiness. Fleas are hard to kill with conventional means – I have tried to squoosh countless of them with my fingernail, exerting, no doubt, oodles of pounds-per-square-flea to no effect, and when I let up they just sit there staring at me, as if to say, “Nice try, bub,” before hopping off to spread more disease and suck more blood. Anemia can be a huge problem – I have had to administer blood transfusions to lots and lots of poor little cats and dogs who have literally been sucked dry of blood, not to mention the numerous diseases that can be passed on by the bite of an infected flea.

Thank goodness science has gifted us with life-changing (for the flea and tick – life ending) compounds like PetArmor Plus that effectively and safely kill adult fleas and ticks and prevent flea eggs from hatching.

Don’t even get me started on ticks. OK – I started, I better finish. Let’s start with the name. Tick –seriously. Just say it – tick. It sounds like you’re trying to cough up a hairball, and rhymes with yuck (sorta). Fleas are bad enough – but they’re small and easily missed. Ticks are big, ugly, obese Jabba-the-Hut-looking things. They suck blood, transmit deadly diseases and are really, really, really ugly. It’s somehow far worse to think of a big, engorged tick passing along deadly diseases while feasting on your pet’s blood than a tiny flea – at least for me. Ticks can carry diseases with almost unpronounceable names like Ehrlichiosis and Anaplasmosis, as well as better-known ones like Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.

With the gift of science in the form of PetArmor, you’ll have to worry less about a flea or tick latching on to your dog or cat in the future and causing badness. No more messy powders, stinky collars or kooky home remedies. With a little prevention in the form of modern flea and tick products like PetArmor you can rest assured, knowing that your pet is safe from the gross horrors and utterly unaesthetic unappealingness of disease-carrying fleas and ticks. All thanks to science!
