We know it can be a little daunting trying to figure out your cat or dog’s healthcare needs, especially if you’re a first-time pet owner. But don’t worry, you’re in the right place. For over 130 years, Bob Martin have been helping generation after generation keep their pets flea free, tick free and worry free; making vet-quality products available and affordable, without compromising on quality.
Here is our fuss-free guide on how to keep your pet flea free, tick free and worry free!
What to do if you discover a flea infestation
If you discover a flea infestation it is important to act quickly. As a first response, Bob Martin Clear flea tablets are effective within 15 minutes and kill 100% of fleas on your pet within 24 hours.
Treat your pet and your home
It is critical that you not only treat your pet but also your home, as the fleas you see on your pet only make up 5% of the flea infestation. The remaining 95% are in your home! Fleas and their eggs fall off your dog’s coat as they move around, lying dormant in your home, often within your soft furnishings such as bedding or blankets.
Our specially formulated Bob Martin Clear Plus Home & Furniture Flea Spray not only kills adult fleas and dust mites, but also eliminates flea eggs and flea larvae; protecting your home for up to 12 months.
Break the flea life cycle
To help you proactively break the flea lifecycle and provide effective long-term protection for your four-legged friend, we recommend using our easy to apply Bob Martin Clear Plus Spot-on. This is our most advanced formula which not only kills 100% fleas, it also eradicates flea eggs and flea larvae too, providing long-lasting protection for your pet and your home.
Don’t forget about worms
Did you know that most dogs need worming monthly?*
Worms can be caused by a number of risk factors, including if your pet inadvertently eats something that has been contaminated with worm eggs. Fleas can also harbour tapeworm infection, meaning that your pet could accidentally ingest them during grooming. Also, if your dog is fed a raw diet or regularly scavenges outdoors, they are at greater risk of ingesting worm eggs.
We recommend that you worm your pet at the same time you treat them for fleas, as part of a regular healthcare routine. Bob Martin Clear wormer tablets are easy to administer and are effective against roundworms, tapeworms, hookworms & whipworms. If you have a cat who struggles with tablets, you can also worm them the easy way with a Bob Martin Clear wormer spot-on.
At Bob Martin, we don’t just protect against little things like fleas and ticks, we look after the little things you love most about life with your pets. That’s because we know that when pets are healthy and happy, owners are happy to – it’s as true today as it was in 1892.
