We are having one of the worst flea seasons in years, caused by mild winter temperatures, a wet spring and soaring summer temperatures, so many pet parents will be upset to find out that the worst has only just begun! August and the beginning of fall are considered the peak times of year for the flea and tick population, and the cooler temperatures will allow these insects to thrive. Worse yet, these bugs are anticipating the arrival of winter, so they are looking for one last meal before it hits.
Since the weather has been so unpredictable over the past few years, animal wellness experts have been warning pet parents to practice year-round flea prevention to combat the elevated levels of parasites that are still a risk outside of the spring, summer and fall. Pet owners have usually turned to Hartz® flea control products and the UltraGuard® website for year-round protection and as a source of information, but for the first time, they will now be able to access this valuable resource on-the-go with the debut of the Hartz® UltraGuard® mobile platform, which can be found at m.hartzultraguard.com.
Hartz® has always been dedicated to providing a full spectrum of relief from seasonal parasites, and knowledge is half the battle. The Hartz® UltraGuard® mobile platform is soon to be released, and it will provide all of the information that pet parents need to combat flea infestations, pick the right product for their animal's age and weight and learn about the times of year when fleas and ticks will be at their worst.
Whether pet owners will be headed to the park, the beach or on their last camping trip during the dog days of summer, their animals may come in contact with seasonal parasites. With Hartz® flea and tick products and the new mobile platform at their disposal, pet parents can formulate a year-round plan of action that will protect their furry friends from myriad seasonal risks. Now it's easier than ever for dog and cat owners to lessen their pets' chances of flea infestations and give them peace of mind throughout the year.
