Petcare Checklist for Kids and Moms

*Thanks to Adams™ Flea & Tick Control Products for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.*

As busy moms, our plates are filled with responsibilities. Isn’t it nice when there are products to help make some of those responsibilities easier? I have three precious children and one very cute dog who all rely on me to care for them. The Adams™ Flea & Tick Control Products like their Adams™ for Dogs Flea & Tick Spot On® and Flea & Tick Home Spray help make caring for our family’s fluffiest member simple and affordable!

A priority for pet care is treating your home and yard on a regular basis to prevent flea and tick outbreaks before they even start. The Adams™ Flea & Tick Home Spray is a super easy way to not only kill fleas and ticks but to also repel ants, and mosquitoes. During the warmer months, the Adams™ Yard & Garden Spray makes it a breeze to kill fleas and ticks and repel mosquitoes from your yard–the yard that your children will be playing in too. Being smart about flea and tick control protects our fur babies from unwanted pests.

One of the best ways to be proactive about flea and tick control is to use monthly flea treatments on your pet. The Adams™ Smart Shield® applicator is included with each purchase of the Adams™ for Dogs Flea & Tick Spot On® from Walmart. This applicator makes it easy and mess-free to apply that monthly dose of treatment. Jaques, our little dog, didn’t even know that I was putting anything on him. He thought I was just petting him when I used the applicator to part his fur and apply the treatment directly to his skin. Quick and easy —this product gets this important monthly pet care task done!

Are you wanting to get the kids involved in caring for the family pet too? You may remember from this post that one of the benefits of owning a pet is the opportunity for your child to practice responsibility and to learn how to care for others. Here’s a fun printable to help your child do just that! Print it off, place it in a page protector, and have your child use a dry erase marker to check off each task as they complete it.
