Are you looking to prevent fleas, ticks, and chewing lice on your small dog? If so, keep reading to hear how PetArmor Plus for Small Dogs helps keep our pooch safe from these pests. This post is sponsored by Mirum. All views expressed are that of our own.
Fleas, and ticks can be the bane of any small (or large) breed dog owner. Let’s just say I have owned a dog with fleas in the past and getting them under control was really tough. Seemingly endless baths, flea bombs, and powders left us with less than desirable results. All of which could have been prevented with products like PetArmor Plus for Small Dogs.
A few years ago, we constantly were finding engorged ticks on our small dog which was quite honestly horrifying. We had no idea the spray we were using was so inefficient until a large “bean” fell off our pooch onto the living room floor. This prompted us to look into a product that could be purchased over the counter to help keep our dog safe.
About 2 years ago we were introduced to PetArmor Plus for Small Dogs. Jared has been administering it to our dog in the spring, summer, and fall months to keep her safe.
We need our pup to stay safe because she is our family dog and one of the kids! Our little ones love her to pieces so she needs to stay safe so they can stay safe.

How to Administer PetArmor Plus

- Separate one tube from the others. Hold the tube with notched end pointing up and away from the face and body.
- Use scissors to cut off the narrow end at the notches along the line.
- Invert tube over dog and use open end to part your dog’s hair.
- Squeeze tube firmly to apply all of the solution to the dog’s skin as a spot to the dog’s back between the shoulder blades.
- Keep treated pets apart from each other, other pets and children for 24 hours after treatment and until the product is dry. This helps prevent pets from ingesting the topical by licking or grooming one another.

Does PetArmor Plus Work?
We have been using this for 2 years and have to say that it does work! But, if you skip or delay a dose you will find ticks on your pup–or worse, fleas! Our dog had a delayed dose last year and ended up with several ticks on her underbelly!
