ORLANDO, Fla., March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Perrigo Animal Health, a division of Perrigo Company plc (NYSE: PRGO; TASE), showcased eight new product SKUs at the 2016 Global Pet Expo: PetArmor® Advanced 2 and PetArmor® Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs.
PetArmor Advanced 2 Flea Treatment
PetArmor Advanced 2 Flea Treatment contains the same active ingredients as Advantage® II, imidacloprid and pyriproxyfen, but costs less.* This monthly flea topical kills all stages of the flea life cycle and works through contact so fleas don't need to bite to die, which helps prevent flea allergy dermatitis. PetArmor Advanced 2 is ideal for urban dogs or cats that aren't exposed to ticks.
PetArmor Advanced 2 will be available in four weight breaks for dogs and puppies over 7 weeks of age and in two weight breaks for cats and kittens over 8 weeks of age in mid-2016.
PetArmor Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs
PetArmor Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs contains the same active ingredients as Scalibor® Protector Band for Dogs — but costs less than vet prices.** The long-last collar contains deltamethrin to protect against fleas and ticks, including those that may carry Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. With two collars each providing six months of protection, dogs will be protected year round from fleas and ticks.
PetArmor Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs is available in small and large sizes for dogs and puppies 12 weeks of age and older.
