WALNUT CREEK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), tick-borne disease is on the rise and prevention should be top-of-mind, particularly during the spring and summer when ticks are most active. In one shopping trip, dog owners can conveniently pick up the new Adams™ Flea and Tick Collar for Dogs & Puppies as they brace for what experts say could be the worst summer on record for an increase in the tick population. Available now in a red circle tin, each purchase includes two adjustable collars that provide a full year (12 months) of protection. In addition, shoppers can save $5 with a limited-time coupon here.
With dog ownership increasing to nearly half (48%) in the U.S.1, pest outbreaks can impact millions of households each year. The mild winter and now, warmer weather has particularly created ideal conditions for pests to grow and multiply quickly this summer. Adams™ Flea and Tick Collar for Dogs & Puppies is one of the first and few collars that protects dogs from fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes; all of which are serious concerns for dog owners across the country because these pests can transmit blood-borne disease. Busy dog owners will appreciate saving time and money by using collars, a hassle-free option compared to monthly, potentially messy topical treatments, which can require a trip to the veterinarian.
To help pet owners get ready for outdoor summer fun here are additional tips:
- Keep pets cool by providing plenty of water and shade to avoid overheating.
- Be mindful to avoid hot surfaces. Pets can burn their paws on sun-heated pavement like black asphalt.
- Avoid using wooden sticks or branches to play fetch. Pets can swallow the smaller sticks or branches which can create a choking hazard and potentially injure their mouth and/or throat.
- Keep an eye out as dogs explore areas around public picnic tables as there may be broken glass that can injure their paws and unhealthy food scraps that may make them ill.
