This post is part of a sponsored campaign on behalf of VetIQ. All thoughts are 100% my own.
Last month, I told you about the awful tick and mosquito problem that we have in the Midwest. My legs tell a story of their own, bug bites everywhere! I can’t even go outside 5 minutes without getting a new bug bite. In fact, I have now switched back to jeans because my legs look like some kind leprosy has invaded. It’s really that… bad.
Thankfully, there are affordable products, like VetGuard Plus, for my pets to keep them safe from these nasty critters.
After hearing about VetGuard Plus, I made a trip up to our local Wal-Mart. With so many flea, tick and mosquito options out there for dogs, I wanted to compare the prices and cost savings in person.
Upon first glance of the Wal-Mart Pet Medication display, I was a little overwhelmed. There seemed to be a lot of options to choose from. I decided to compare the three major brands that were displayed, VetGuard Plus, Frontline Plus and PetArmor.
VetGuard had the best display, with bright packaging to make the selection easy. Offering 3 options of treatment, VetGuard makes it easy to find the right solution for either a small, medium or large dog.
PetArmor was situated on the shelf directly above VetGuard and the price comparison was very similar to that of VetGuard.
Frontline Plus had it’s own display, hanging up top and stood out with almost a $15 increase from the other two options.
When comparing the top brands of Flea and Tick medication for dogs, VetGuard stood out above the rest with not only a killing agent against ticks, fleas, mosquitoes, mites, lice and fleas, it also provided a repellant agent to keep the bugs away.
I’m not quite sure why Frontline Plus was almost $15 more than VetGuard, with not even half of the protection. PetAmor and VetGuard were very close in price, but VetGuard still offered the better option.
So we brought VetGuard home to give it a go on little Miss Lola.
Each box comes with a 4 month supply of VetGuard Plus applicators and a sticker sheet to use for your monthly reminders.
What’s even better, you can sign up for monthly reminders online through vetguardplus.com. I love how effortless it is to remember when it’s time for a new VetGuard Plus application!
Lola is about a 13 pound Shih Tzu, so we used the VetGuard Plus for small dogs.
To apply VetGuard Plus, start by using the applicator’s cap to twist and break the seal off of the tube. Place the tube over the dog’s neck and squeeze, spread the application out by squeezing it onto the skin in 3 different areas between the neck and the base of the tail.
Sometimes it’s easy to get wrapped up into one brand of product. I do this all of the time. But lately, I’ve come to see that great products are all around us and by taking the time to look into other products, like VetGuard Plus, you can save money and even gain benefit by trying something new.
