Face of FRONTLINE – Join the fight against fleas and become a superstar! #faceofFRONTLINE #ThroughTheFleaHole

 

Hi everyone,

As many of you probably know we always try and provide as much information as possible when it comes to the fight against fleas, ticks and other parasites.

So of course when FRONTLINE asked us to help promote their campaign we were more than eager to join them in helping keep pets safe from flea infestations.

Before we go over to the campaign details let’s remind everyone of why it is so important to take preventative measures to combat fleas.

Some cats are only mildly affected by fleas and at worst they may experience a small amount of scratching. For other cats, it can lead to more severe problems such as an allergic reaction to flea saliva which causes a severe itch and sometimes miliary dermatitis. This comes with crusty sores that appear all over the body as well as hair loss. It is also possible for those cats who have a large number of fleas on them to lose enough blood to become anaemic and small kittens are especially susceptible to this.

We actually saw some cats with what seemed to be severe flea problems on our recent trip to Japan. They were feral cats that had lost almost all of their fur and had crusty sores all over their faces! This was not a nice sight and reminds us as to why prevention is so important. (We pointed out the location of these ferals to the local rescue btw!)

Now while for most cats fleas are just a nuisance the biggest danger is where ticks are involved because they can transmit serious diseases through their saliva when they feed on cats’ blood. You may even not notice any change in your cat until the infection is well established.

Products such as FRONTLINE Plus are an easy way to treat for fleas and ticks and help protect from their dangers!

So what is the campaign itself all about? Well FRONTLINE is currently running an amazing competition which gives your pet the chance to becoming the face of FRONTLINE! And if that wouldn’t be enough already you will also be receiving a year’s supply of FRONTLINE Plus to keep your cat or dog treated for fleas and ticks.

All you have to do is post a picture of your pet in their favourite spot in the house using the hashtag #throughthefleahole #faceofFRONTLINE by the end of Sunday 27th of August 2017.

    1. Ah I think it’s just to make it manageable for them. :s with those they can do an easy hashtag search

      1. Perhaps, but it excludes a number of us social media hold-outs… Not to worry, they are not the only ones who make such things… Our response is to not purchase their products and encourage others not to as well.

          1. Honestly, I have little use for any of them but do access my LinkedIn occasionally. I have a few e/blog friends who I communicate with there and some of my other friends keep tabs that way.

          2. Something more inclusive, I know I am not the only one who is a social media hold out! Perhaps a direct email method? I really haven’t a clue.

    1. Luckily I never had to deal with the clouds of powder treatments! I’ve heard stories of that from my partner though who HAS in the past had to deal with that.

  1. I’ve used Frontline for years on my cats and dogs. I love the product. None of my cats or dogs have ever had any fleas and it works so great on ticks too. Never had ticks embedded on cats or ticks. So easy to use compared to years ago you only had something like a flea collar which did nothing for ticks. And those were dangerous for strangling or coming off.

    Oliver and Nubia pics are gorgeous!
