Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here! We are here to do a special Chewy.com review. A little over a month ago we received an unexpected box from Chewy.

What’s in the box this month?

When we opened it we found a box of Onguard Flea & Tick Treatment for Dogs, 45-88 lbs. (There are other sizes available for smaller pups too.) Unfortunately we had received our monthly flea med application just the day before this box from Chewy.com came. We decided that we would just wait a month and use it for our next treatment.

We read the box carefully and also checked online to get all the details before we let our pawrents apply it to us.

According to Chewy.com:

“Onguard Flea & Tick Treatment for Dogs offers an effective and convenient way to keep your pup protected from pests. This fast-acting topical treatment kills all life stages of fleas and ticks on dogs at least 8 weeks old…and helps control infestations of chewing lice and sarcoptic mange mites. With the time-tested and commonly used fipronil and (S)-methoprene as its two active ingredients, Onguard breaks the flea life cycle and rids your dog of fleas that can cause flea allergy dermatitis. Not only does it wipe out adult fleas, but it keeps new eggs from hatching. This powerful formula keeps killing Brown dog ticks, American dog ticks, Lone Star ticks and Deer ticks that may carry Lyme disease for up to a month.”


“Application is easy—just squeeze this spot treatment onto your pup’s skin between the shoulder blades. Onguard is long-lasting and waterproof, so it still offers protection even after a bath or if your pup gets caught in the rain.”

To open each application you just snip off the top with a scissors. Then you let your pawrents apply it to your back between your shoulder blades. We don’t have any pictures of us getting the treatment because our pawrents like to work as a team with dad holding us and mom applying the flea medication.

Here I, Walter, am after mom put the Onguard on me.

Just a little closer look. You can’t really see it but there is a little wet spot from it.

Here is Millie after her treatment.

At a closer look you can see some of it on the surface. Millie’s fur isn’t quite as thick as Walter’s so it comes to the surface a bit easier.

After we got our treatments we were rewarded for being good pups with a cookie. We had this flea treatment about a week ago and can report no adverse effects or any fleas or ticks on either of us. Now we’re going to turn this over to our mom so she can give you her two cents on Onguard Flea & Tick.

Hi everyone. It’s Cindy here now. Millie & Walter normally receive K9 Advantix II Flea & Tick Treatment for Large Dogs 21-55 lbs which is also available from Chewy.com. One of the reasons we use K9 Advantix II is because in addition to protecting the dogs from fleas and ticks it also repels and kills mosquitoes and repels and prevents blood-feeding by biting flies.

Our property has a creek running across it with some swampy areas so we unfortunately have a lot of mosquitoes every summer. We also are subjected to a nasty biting fly season every year. The K9 Advantix II really makes a difference in combating these two pests as well as controlling fleas and ticks.

The bottom line is that Onguard is a good product if you only need to control fleas and ticks. It is also $11 dollars per pack cheaper than K9 Advantix II and right now Chewy.com is running a special for 50% Off First Pack Limit 1 per customer (conditions apply). We are thankful to Chewy for giving us the opportunity try Onguard Flea & Tick treatment and will use it for Millie & Walter again after the summer is over but we prefer to use K9 Advantix II during the mosquito and biting fly season.

Millie & Walter give Onguard Flea and Tick 8 paws up (because that is all the paws we have) and we recommend it to all our friends.


This month we are joining Koru Bear for the Chewy.com blog hop.
