Shelters Get $75,000 in Ovitrol® X-Tend Flea & Tick Spot On® Flea Treatment

Tsk, Tsk, Tsk: Trash those Ticks with One Quick Spritz

Ticks are gross. They give me the heebie jeebies. There is absolutely nothing worse than getting all lovey with Tripper only to discover a hard little bump on his skin.
