As part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network I am being compensated by PetArmor, for my participating in this blog tour. All opinions expressed are my own, and all cute Matthew pictures are courtesy of me. You’re welcome!
Living in Florida we ALWAYS are outside. It's just too nice to not be enjoying our beautiful weather. Our dog, Matthew spends a lot of time outdoors too. Matthew loves to dig in the yard, climb our orange tree (yes, CLIMBS) and roll around in anything that smells dogalicious.
Here is a quick video of Matthew jumping in the neighbor's orange tree, where he thinks balls grows on trees.
I am a dog person. I always grew up with a dog, and up until I went away to college I had a Yellow Labrador Retriever. Matthew reminds me an awful lot of that lab, Tigger who lived out the rest of her days very happy with my cousin, aunt and uncle.
Being a responsible pet owner means that I need to take Matthew to the Vet for regular check-ups, vaccinations, and of course, flea, and tick control.
We treat our lawn area for bugs, but we frequent the wooded trails quite often for hikes. I KNOW they have ticks there because I have picked them off of MYSELF before.
Fleas and Ticks are dangerous to both pets and humans. Ticks carry deadly diseases such as Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Lucky for both me and my dog, PetArmor is an effective solution for flea and tick protection.
I like that PetArmor costs significantly less than many other brands, but still contains the same No. 1 vet-recommended active ingredient Fipronil found in Frontline brand products. PetArmor needs to applied once per month and it keeps your dog protected for a full 30 days!

What type of flea/tick prevention do you use for your pet??
