Adams™ d-Limonene Flea & Tick Shampoo is highly regarded not only as an effective flea and tick killer, but also as a superior grooming product. Its non-alkaline formula contains the key active ingredient d-Limonene, a pleasant citrus-scented insecticide, plus cleansing agents, lanolin, and special conditioners. As a result, tangles brush out easily, leaving the pet with a clean, soft, shiny, healthier looking coat and a fresh, clean smell.
