Giveaway: Win a Prize bundle from Bob Martin

Bob Martin Giveaway

Autumn/Winter is the time for pulling on your wellies and heading out into the countryside but did you know that it is also the height of tick season? Ticks can be a danger to both you and your pet so it’s important to be vigilant in preventing and treating.

Ticks can carry Lyme disease which, if left untreated, can cause serious health issues.  Recent research from Bristol University has shown that ticks are on the rise and, out of 15,000 dogs surveyed, 1 in 3 dogs were found to have a tick. Unfortunately, only one in ten people are aware that the best time to check for ticks is after a walk, with 54.1% of dogs are brushed inside (with nearly a fifth – 18.5% – in the lounge, in front of the TV!), so any dirt and pests like ticks will drop off inside – putting the family at risk! I have to admit that we are VERY guilty of this – Paul is currently brushing Barney in the front room and as I type it is making me itch thinking of just what he may have picked up on his latest walk.

Bob Martin is giving one lucky Emmy’s Mummy reader the chance to win a walking bundle to help protect and treat their pets and families this autumn.  The pack includes a selection of Bob Martin tick products, a pair of wellies, a walking kit and a Fluff & Spruce Slicka Brush for those important tick checks.

Top tips for protecting your pet from ticks

  • Use Bob Martin spot on regularly to repel ticks, particularly in tick season (throughout summer and autumn). Follow reapplication guidance.
  • When going out for a walk, keep Bob Martin Flea and Tick spray in the car and give your dog a quick spray before walking.
  • When walking, stick to footpaths as much as possible, avoid long grass and be aware in wooded areas.
  • After the walk, give your dog a good brush before getting into the car so any loose ticks are knocked off.  Focus on the underbelly, around ears and jaw.
  • If you do spot a tick on your dog, use Bob Martin’s tick remover as quickly as possible to remove it safely.

Top tips for protecting your family

  • Long trousers and sleeves will deter ticks from attaching and try light coloured clothing on walks so you can easily see any ticks you may have picked up.
  • Beware – ticks can get picked up on picnic blankets, so give them a good shake.
  • After the walk, give yourself and your family a quick check – particularly around the armpits, groin and belly button.
  • If you do discover an attached tick that has been feeding and has swollen in size, remove it quickly and safely with a tick remover and go to your GP for a test.

  1. I have dogs and a cat, all are flead on a regular basis but the cat is treated more often as she seems to catch them more often

  2. I have 2 dogs. I have a plan set up with my vets and they text me each month when it’s time to pick up their flea treatment and administer it. One less thing for me to have to worry about forgetting!

  3. 3 dogs and they are all treated regularly for fleas, ticks and worms. It’s always written on the calendar when it is due so we don’t forget

  4. yes a Dog , maltese hes only 8m he is treated reg the vet sends a reminder but still he got fleas this year they were awful to get rid of too, i didnt think he would if treated but hey- ho they are gone now

  5. I have 2 cats and 2 dogs and we regularly treat them for fleas and ticks.
    Thank you for running such a generous giveaway!

  6. I have a dog and we don’t treat her regularly-we have always been very lucky until recently. As flea products are expensive this would be a great prize

  7. I have 4 cats and it’s so important to treat them for fleas and ticks regularly. Otherwise, they just pass it around themselves and never really get clear of it.

  8. We have a dog and treat him regularly for ticks & fleas (every 3 months) and give him a worm tablet once a month during the warmer months when slugs are out to make sure he is protected against lungworm too

  9. I have a dog, but thankfully he doesn’t often have a flea problem. We have had tick problems though as we regularly walk in long grass.

  10. Dogs and Cats are part of family life. We do love pets. Do our best to take care of their every need . Like to be kept up to date on pet care etc.

  11. I have a cat, never used to have a problem with fleas but she got some about a month ago and I can’t seem to shift them at all. Only product that worked so far was the tablets but you don’t get many and I must have missed a spot in the house because she caught fleas again a week later 🙁

  12. I havent any pets due to allergies
    This would be perfect for my sister who loves her cats dogs and other furry friends

  13. I have a cat and my mum has a dog and we treat them both to prevent fleas and ticks. Every month without fail. It’s the best protection for them, and has the added bonus that our houses aren’t full of little hopping critters! 🙂

  14. we have 2 dogs and one cat and yes, we regularly treat for fleas, if the dogs just get one on them, they go crazy

  15. I have 3 dogs and 3 cats and I do keep them up to date with flea preventitive. I absolutely hate the thought of them getting fleas!

  16. We have a dog and cat. Although don’t treat them regularly we do check regularly and if needed we treat immediately

  17. I have a dog and she began to react badly to her monthly flea treatments so I don’t treat her unless she has fleas. I check her regularly.

  18. we have a cat, she’s 19 so she catches fleas really easily so we have had to give her a bath a few times to get rid of them

  19. always treat our cat! i’ve seen what a nightmare people have had to get rid of them and esp with having young children, not worth the risk 🙂
