This is a sponsored post on behalf of Adams™ Brand Flea and Tick protection. Flea and Tick prevention is an important component to your pet’s health and well being.
Three years ago my husband walked down our steps to find that our previously healthy, 2 year old Yellow Lab could no longer stand up. He had been perfectly fine the night before and had shown absolutely no symptoms of not feeling well.
We, of course, expected the worst and immediately called and made an appointment with our veterinarian. After an expensive day of tests we found out that he had Lyme disease and his joints were inflamed and that is why he could not stand up.
All of this might have been prevented however, if we had applied Adams™ for Dogs Flea & Tick Spot On® to him before he was bit by an infected tick. We had always applied Flea and Tick treatment in the summer but since it was early spring we hadn’t applied it yet for the year. We didn’t realize that while ticks typically become widespread when temps are above 70 degrees the reality is that you can have ticks in your yard at any point once the snow melts.
Every year, especially in the spring I have to make sure that I check the dog and the kids whenever they come in from outside and my husband and I have become experts in tick removal. With little preventive measures however, you can help protect your kids from Flea and Tick bites when out in the yard.
I like to use the Adams™ Flea and Tick Control Products to cut down on Tick occurrences. Adams™ Flea & Tick Control Products at Walmart include:
- Adams™ for Dogs Flea & Tick Spot On® with Free Applicator
- Adams™ Flea & Tick Spray
- Adams™ Flea & Tick Cleansing Shampoo
- Adams™ Flea & Tick Home Spray
I am looking forward to using the Yard and Garden Spray in areas of the yard near my porch where my dog likes to lay. I hope that by spraying the area it keeps ticks from being attracted to my dog…and my kids! It kills fleas, ticks, ants, mosquitoes and more!
I also make sure to apply the Adams™ For Dogs Flea & Tick Spot On® with Free Applicator on my dog already, before the snow melts and the ticks become frequent in my yard. I just had my dog sit and I applied it on him while petting him. Super easy with no mess on my hands! It provides flea and tick protection for up to 30 days and even kills and repels mosquitoes!
Thankfully, Lyme disease in dogs can be treated fairly easily with antibiotics and anti-inflamatories and my dog has been healthy since with just a few flare ups and now I know just how important it is to treat your pets for Flea and Ticks early in the year. ￼

Glad your pup is okay! What a sweet lab. Our golden retriever is going to be 2 in June.
Thanks- this reminds me I need to pick something for my cat! (And our yard!)
maria @ close to home says
We could use this for our yard since we have a lot of wooded area. My son found his first tick today.
I so need to get some more yard work done if it ever stops raining.
I’ve used this brand before and Its really good. The Flea and Tick Prevention works like a charm
It’s important to have a high quality product for this kind of thing. Fleas you don’t want on your pet or in your house, and ticks are def. nothing to mess with… Great post too, with summer on its way.
Debbie Denny says
This is a great brand. Important o keep them free of those awful things.
Liz Mays says
If I had pets I’d be well stocked with these things. There’s no way I’m having fleas in the house!
Ashley @irishred02 says
Growing up our dogs would always get fleas. This would have been good to have
Melissa Vera says
I am loving the yard spray. Thanks for the reminder I have to get the fur babies treated.
I soo need to check this out! Do you know what age you can use this on? I have 2 puppies 🙂
It is so important to keep our pets guarded against ticks and fleas! Great article!
Mama to 5 BLessings says
We do not have any pets but this definitely sounds like a great product line to keep those pesky fleas away!
I’m glad to hear your pup is ok! I will be buying flea & tick meds soon. I didn’t realize how fast they pop up.
Carol Bryant says
Although we use more natural alternatives for flea and tick prevention, I do know that a lot of folks would love a product like this. TY for sharing this info!
Sounds like a great product for fur babies indeed!
Dawn McAlexander says
Just anther good reason to keep my two furbabies in the house! Lymes disease, ah! Glad your dog was okay!
Stacey- Travel Blogger says
That’s a sad story with a happy ending! Really glad to hear that your dog was okay!
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
Ticks are such awful pests! I don’ think anything good can come from them! Your poor dog! Hate that it had to suffer like that!
This is so important especially this time of year.
What an adorable and lovable face! You are taking very good care of your pup and it shows! Thanks for the info.
Jessica Harlow says
Ticks seem to be getting worse and worse every year where we live. I’m really considering the Yard & Garden spray as added protection for our pets this year!
Karla Campos says
Glad you dog was OK, you had me in suspense. It is good to prevent because antibiotics can be costly as well as vet visits.
Lexie Lane says
It’s the worst when they’ve got fleas because you just know they are extremely irritated! This sounds like a great product! My dog always seemed to have fleas when she was alive. Even after we took her to the vet! Wish we knew about this!
We have two dogs so I have to protect them year round here in Florida. Thanks for the advice
