EAGLE, Idaho, March 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PetIQ, Inc. (“PetIQ” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: PETQ), a leading pet medication, product and wellness company, has officially kicked off flea & tick season with NextStar,® the fastest-acting 30-day topical protection available,* to help educate pet parents on year-round monthly prevention to get ahead of seasonal upticks in infestations and keep pets and the moments pet parents share with them protected.

Available at local retailers and online with no prescription needed, NextStar’s® veterinarian-recommended** formula not only kills fleas and ticks; it also kills mosquitoes, chewing lice, flea eggs, flea larvae, and prevents the development of flea pupae with its 7-way pest protection. The waterproof topical is easy to use and can be applied directly onto pets’ skin for protection that kills fleas and ticks through contact and starts working within minutes, all month long. When applying NextStar® for the first time or after a lapse in monthly prevention, full nose-to-tail protection is in place 24-48 hours after initial application.

With flea and tick season quickly approaching in early Spring, NextStar® is offering an extra measure of peace of mind beyond monthly protection with a new telehealth support line, the first of its kind for any flea and tick preventive. Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the telehealth line, provides real-time support from veterinary telehealth specialists to address parasite-related concerns, questions, and prevention or infestation education for NextStar® customers (with proof of purchase).

“Every moment we share with our pets deserves protecting, especially against fleas and ticks, which can pose a dangerous threat to pets by carrying diseases or causing serious skin reactions,” said John Pearson, PetIQ’s Executive Vice President, Services and Manufactured Products. “NextStar® preserves those special moments with our pets with its fast-acting formula that can be applied monthly for year-round protection, helping pet parents feel more at ease knowing that their pet is pest-free, healthy, and happy.”
