      — Hartz Research & Innovation


      As America's first pet care company, we understand the powerful relationship between veterinarians, pet owners and pets. We've spent decades researching, designing, and delivering exceptional products to support healthier pets.

      • We are committed to providing the latest science to effectively eliminate parasites and prevent them from biting or infesting pets and their surroundings, and reinfesting.

      • We believe in affordable pest prevention for every pet. That's why Hartz® UltraGuard® Flea & Tick products are broadly available.

      • We recommend an integrated and complete approach. Our expertise in flea & tick control ranges from flea & tick drops, shampoos, and collars to in-home sprays, carpet powders, foggers and yard sprays. Treating the whole problem is key to a pest-free environment.

      • We are dedicated to providing veterinarians with the facts and resources you need to help educate your clients so they can make objective decisions about products to protect their pets from parasites and vector-borne disease.

      • We support the veterinary profession on many different fronts, including CE courses at major veterinary conferences, scholarships for veterinary technicians, as well as programs and free materials to help educate pet owners.
