Tell Fleas & Ticks to Bug Off this Summer

The Company of Animals unveils new 2 in 1 Flea & Tick Comb to remove parasites quickly and easily

Online PR News – 21-May-2012 – Bridgeport, CT – While some are rejoicing over the onset of spring’s warmer weather, The Company of Animals is cautioning pet owners to be aware of the season’s pesky bug conditions. That’s because with the warm weather comes the increased threat of fleas and ticks.

Fleas and ticks are more than a nuisance. They can present serious health conditions. In fact, ticks are the #1 carrier of Lyme disease – an illness that can cause joint swelling, fever, heart or nervous system complications, even kidney failure. And “Lyme disease isn’t reserved for pets who frequent wooded areas,” comments Jeanette Holliday, the US Marketing Manager at The Company of Animals. “Any dog or cat spending time outdoors, even in the city, needs to be protected against ticks.”

But pet parents need not fret when armed with the new Flea & Tick Comb from The Company of Animals, the first duel tool of its kind. The patent protected comb is the only 2 in 1 comb specially designed to physically remove parasites. On one side, there’s a fine-toothed comb to remove flea residue and eggs. The other side features a slit specifically engineered to capture complete ticks. It’s an ideal, holistic alternative for parents who prefer not to use harsh sprays or chemicals on their pet. Additionally, the Flea & Tick Comb is designed with a small circular opening in the corner, so parents can attach the handy comb to their key chain. Now parents can be prepared for whatever their summer adventures may bring.

For more information on protecting your pet from fleas and ticks, The Company of Animals encourages you to speak to your veterinarian. The Flea & Tick Comb has a suggested retail price of $1.49. Find The Company of Animals at or on Facebook at
