Affordable And Unbelievable Flea/Tick Protection With VetGuard Plus

I recently took a proactive approach to my dog Gunner’s health by applying VetIQ’s VetGuard Plus. As a recap from my previous post, Proactive Pet Health With VetGuard Plus, VetGuard Plus is a vet-grade (and Veterinarian recommended) tick and flea medication. Not only does VetGuard allow you to protect your pet against fleas and ticks at an extremely affordable cost ($24.99), but you can purchase VetGuard Plus at a variety of local retailers: Walmart, Walgreens, Sam’s Club, Rite Aid, etc.


I didn’t have to drive more than a few miles to purchase VetIQ’s VetGuard Plus. Arriving at my local Walmart, I felt a little overwhelmed concerning the number of tick and flea products. There were many variables to take into consideration: price, protection, ingredients, months of protection, etc. It didn’t take me long to spot VetGuard Plus’ brightly colored blue and orange package. Comparing VetGuard Plus to other brands such as FrontLine Plus and PetArmor, it was a “no brainer” decision choosing VetIQ’s VetGuard Plus.

VetGuard Plus

  • Kills fleas, ticks, mites, mosquitoes, and lice (other brands don’t protect against mosquitoes and mites)
  • Prevents new eggs from becoming adults while killing flea eggs and larvae (other brands lack protection against new eggs while killing old eggs)
  • Repels future pests (I didn’t find this feature in other tick and flea medications)
  • One box provides 4 months of protection (other brands only offer 1-3 months of protection)
  • Price at my local Walmart $22.86 (compared to $25-$40)

In other words, VetGuard Plus offers a wider range of protection for a longer amount of time while costing less money!

After happily making my purchase, I hurried home to start VetGuard Plus‘ application process. As I opened the box, I noted that each box contains four tubes of medication (one tube provides one month of protection) and stickers to help remind you when your pet needs the next dosage of medication. Because Gunner weighs more than 66 pounds, I applied VetGuard Plus for extra large dogs.


Placing the tube at the bottom of Gunner’s neck and squeezing the medication along his back towards his tail, I found VetGuard Plus extremely easy to apply. Because Gunner is a pretty big dog, I found it helpful for me to apply the medication while holding Gunner in the bathtub (this prevented him from trying to run away). Gunner handled the application process really well and didn’t receive any side effects from the medication. Gunner is loving VetGuard Plus; he is tick/flea free and loving life.

As a pet owner, I know that preventative pet care, such as applying VetGuard Plus, is SO much cheaper than a visit to the vet for flea/tick problems. I am so happy that Gunner gets to experience quality flea/tick protection at such an affordable cost.


This is how Gunner “thanked” me for using VetGuard Plus

I haven't tried this brand but I did buy an off-brand online that has been working well for my dogs. I might have to try out this brand since I can get it at Walmart and not have to worry about paying shipping and waiting for the product to arrive.
