Johnson’s has replaced its 250ml House Flea Spray with an improved Extra Guard House Flea Spray plus. The new 250ml spray is a water-based formulation and to distinguish it, comes in blue livery instead of the previous green can. The spray kills crawling and flying insects such as fleas, mites, lice, bed bugs, wasps, mosquitoes, cockroaches, ants and flies on carpets, rugs, soft furnishings and pet bedding. Regular use of an environmental spray is necessary to deal with 95% of the flea lifecycle, which takes place in furnishings, etc. where hundreds of eggs, larvae and pupae develop into adults and cause re-infestation. RRP £4.99 in packs of six.

The original coconut and neem oil dog shampoo bar from CocoMutts has proved extremely popular with trade buyers, consumers and professionals. That’s why it has now released two additions to the range – a coconut & moringa shampoo bar and an argan & oatmilk shampoo bar. All three are hand made in the UK using only natural ingredients. The argan and oatmilk shampoo is also 100% fragrance free, ‘perfect for particularly roublesome or sensitive skin’. CocoMutts dog shampoo bars generally last longer than an equivalent liquid shampoo and don’t need the squeezy plastic bottle, great for the environmentally conscious consumer.
