I don't post about them as much as my human children, but if you didn't already know this, I also have two Labrador children. So meet my pups: Sadie, my 5-year-old yellow lab and Molly, my 3-year-old black lab!

I love having dogs most of the time. They're amazing companions for my little boys, super guard dogs and always loyal! There are also a few things I don't like about my dogs. One of my biggest pet peeves is them tracking in dirt, but a close second is the critters they're exposed to in the summer. My parents live out on the lake and have a lot of woods around them. We take our dogs out there almost every weekend in the summer to swim and run around, but then they bring home the gross and dreaded TICKS! AH!!!

Nearly 75 percent of U.S. pet households report at least one flea and tick infestation each year though outbreaks can be prevented with proper care (Kenton Flea & Tick Study, 2013). Flea and tick outbreaks are triggered by changes in temperature and humidity, often catching families off-guard and vulnerable to infestation. It is key to comprehensively treat pets, home and yard regularly to eliminate the pests as well as their hidden eggs and larvae before they become biting, breeding adults. Did you know ten adult female fleas could produce up to 15,000 flea eggs in just 30 days? YUCK! Many Adams™ products can help break the flea life cycle.

So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that pre-treating for these nasty pests is easier than ever!! The easiest way to control Flea and Ticks are before they occur so I was pumped when I found out that the award-winning Adams™ Smart Shield® applicator comes free when you buy Adams™ for Dogs Flea & Tick Spot On® at Wal-Mart. Adams™ for Dogs Flea & Tick Spot On® provides flea and tick protection for up to 30 days. It doesn’t just kill adult fleas and ticks. It also prevents flea re-infestation by breaking the flea life cycle, which kills flea eggs and larvae that could hatch later on. Plus, it kills and repels mosquitoes. It is SO easy to use. I remember when I was pregnant I would wait until Bryan could treat the dogs because I was afraid of getting the liquid on my hands. The new Adams™ Smart Shield® applicator takes that worry completely out of the whole ordeal!

Adams™ topical products feature the 2013 Product of the Year Award-Winning Smart Shield® applicator which allows you to apply treatment with no mess or stress. The innovative design keeps liquid off hands, parts dog’s fur, and helps get liquid down to the skin, where the bugs live.
