Hartz launches SAFE program to spread flea and tick awareness
February 02, 2012
Veterinarians have seen their fair share of flea and tick infestations over the years - they are one of the most stubborn problems that a furry friend can face. Worse yet, even with regular visits to the vet, some owners just don't understand the breadth of the problem and just how detrimental it can be to the health and well-being of an animal. Luckily, Hartz has launched the SAFE program, a series of brochures, pamphlets and posters that will give pet parents a visual representation of the problem and helpful tips on how they can improve their companion's flea and tick prevention.
These products are available through www.hugprofessional.com so vets can get a first-hand look at these useful visual aids. SAFE stands for Selecting the right product for your pet, Asking your veterinarian for advice, Following the directions on the label and Enjoying happy times with your parasite-free furry friend. If everyone followed this advice, veterinarians would have far fewer flea and tick problems to deal with!
This selection of pet owner education tools could be a boost for a veterinarian's clinic and help their owners better understand the risks of these parasites. First, Hartz has released a series of informational brochures for dogs and cats about proper flea and tick control. These pamphlets will help pet parents choose the best flea and tick preventative for their animal and learn a wide range of safety precautions. Everything from proper application to how frequently the medication should be administered is detailed in the brochures.
Hartz has also released a series of informational posters that will be right at home in a veterinarian's office. Each of the four posters brings a unique set of information to the table to highlight just how important flea and tick prevention is. The company offers a flea and tick control for canines or cats comparison poster, which lists all of the EPA-approved flea and tick medications that owners can use. Additionally, Hartz is debuting a tick incidence map of the United States and an illustration of the tick and tick-borne disease life cycle. Both of these pieces of media are extremely informative and can give pet owners a visual representation of the scope of the parasite problem.
The SAFE program and www.hugprofessional.com are just a few examples of how Hartz is doing everything it can to educate veterinarians and pet owners about the year-round risks of fleas and ticks.
