Thank you Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® for sponsoring this post. Complete and trusted flea and tick prevention starts with Hartz!
OK maybe I am naive… maybe just uneducated on dogs… but I kinda low key forgot that ticks were a thing to worry about!? Within our first TWO days of moving to Kansas City, I found a TICK on Lady. I wanted to die. gag. throw her out (kidding). But I was so grossed out! Especially because Jake wasn’t there and I had to remove the tick myself.
We now have moved back to Arizona and I honestly had to google if ticks lived here… scary truth: THEY DO. I guess I thought the heat would keep them away but there are certain kinds of ticks that love the heat. Whhhhhyyyyyyyyyy.
So since I couldn’t escape the ticks, I had to make sure Lady was protected from them- which would also keep my kids safe too! That is why we started using Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® Drops to keep the bugs away from our little Lady Bug. I feel like a better dog mom already! Hartz® keeps more than 5 million doggies safe from fleas and ticks each year, which is why we felt safe using this brand.

Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® Drops keeps all the nasties away: fleas, flea eggs and flea larvae and brown dog and deer ticks, and it also repells mosquitoes for up to 30 days. THANK GOD. I love that they have options of using drops or collars that are also repellent to all those pesky parasites. Who doesn’t love options? From topical treatments to collars, Hartz® UltraGuard Pro® offers complete flea and tick protection for less, keeping your pet pest free and ready for any outdoor adventure this summer.
The application was incredibly easy as well! You just need to remove the cap from the bottle and apply to the neck and drag down the back. Then I just massaged it in to Lady’s fur, because who doesn’t love a good doggie massage?!
I can’t believe I was so naive in thinking that Lady would never get a tick?! It got me thinking about how I’ve never even really considered the possibility of her getting fleas either. Another naive thought, especially because when we were living in Kansas City we went to a dog park EVERY DAY because we did not have a fenced in yard like we do here in Arizona. I loved taking her to the dog park and letting her run wild with the other pups. She hadn’t really spent much time around other dogs until then. So I never thought about the possibility of her getting fleas from other dogs or even ticks while we were at the dog park!
I am so glad she is now protected from fleas and ticks! And the application was so easy that it will be easy to do again in 30 days. I might even try the Hartz® collar option so that we can live more worry free while Lady enjoys her freedom!
