Dogs and ticks don’t mix! Certifect for Dogs and Puppies is for dogs that are likely to be exposed to ticks, and at the same time, require flea control. It is very possible that the wildlife visiting your backyard are bringing disease-carrying ticks along with them. Certifect for Dogs and Puppies takes care of these ticks in short order. Certifect for Dogs and Puppies kills ticks within 18 hours, rather than the typical 24-48 hours. It also destroys the life cycle of fleas. Lyme disease and other dangerous illnesses carried by ticks have increased dramatically over the past few years. You want to prevent your dog or puppy from exposure to any harm. Two chemicals (amitraz and fipronil) create a mighty twosome against ticks that make Certifet for Dogs and Puppies one of your dog’s best friends!
