As a pet owner I know the importance of caring for my Dog Barney, not only when it comes to ensuring he eats good quality food and gets enough exercise, but also ensuring his vaccinations are up to date and he is treated for fleas, ticks and worms regularly – this care is very important to keep animals fit and healthy, and of course has a knock on effect for families and the house too. If your pet has fleas, there is a good chance they are in your house too!
FRONTLINE® has been at the forefront of flea and tick protection for pets for many years and are have just launched a brand new product to the range, new ‘double action’ FRONTLINE® Plus. It not only kills fleas and ticks on the pet, it also contains an active ingredient that stops flea eggs from hatching and larvae developing in the home. This is important as 95% of a flea problem can be found in the home as eggs, larvae and pupae. So, FRONTLINE Plus helps to protect your pet, and your home.
To celebrate this new launch FRONTLINE is touring for a 3 month national Roadshow with Steph and Dom Parker from Channel 4’s Gogglebox supporting the launch, alongside TV Vet Dr. Scott Miller.
Steph, Dom, Gigi (Steph & Dom’s miniature Daschund,) and Dr. Scott will be posting about the campaign on their social media channels and have taken part in press interviews across national newspapers, magazines and broadcast channels to help raise awareness of FRONTLINE® Plus.
The FRONTLINE House, which was revealed at London Victoria train station at the beginning of this month, features a typical British living room and garden area. It is set up to encourage visitors to explore the space and look for places where fleas are likely to hide in our homes and where ticks lurk in the garden. Onsite are fully qualified veterinary professionals on hand to offer their expert advice on flea and tick prevention. There will be an opportunity for you to take part in a flea and tick fact hunt and by doing so you can win instant rewards through a ‘lucky dip’ giveaway. Visitors to the House are encouraged to share photos of the activity on their social channels. You can also sign up to the free FRONTLINE treatment reminder service to be in with a chance to WIN a £1,500 pet-friendly Forest Holiday or one of five pet photo shoots worth £500!*
