Makes Dog Anxious After Application
My 13 yr old, 100 lb, lab/shepherd mix is a pretty resilient dog and has received Frontline many times with no issues. An hour or so after applying this generic product, he started panting noticeably more than normal and keeps coming to me like he wants to go out, then coming back in, being unusually "needy" and unable to settle down. This reminded me of a separate incident using a different generic, OTC, topical flea repellent on my brother's dog, and in that case the dog became so anxious we had to give him diphenhydramine (in case it was an allergic reaction) and a bath to get as much of the solution off as we could. These generic medications seem to cause different reactions, perhaps related to the "inactive" ingredients? I've not had any reason to believe they won't work similarly to kill fleas, but I'm not willing to give my dog panic attacks or possibly worse side-effects so will go back to the name brand and throw away my remaining doses of this one. That obviously erases any cost savings of the generic and creates so much more risk and worry... it just isn't worth it to me. That said, I've not heard of any cases of more extreme outcomes, so perhaps checking with your vet and watching your dog carefully after application is an acceptable balance for owners and their pets that aren't having these reactions.

the fleas were such a horror
I used this product and the fleas got in my bed. I had to buy a new mattress when they put on the new bed zipper covers, I had to hold the king size mattress within 2 hours I had to have 3 stents in my heart. It was good the hospital was close--the stress of not knowing it was fleas. How to rid the house of them all of that was due to this bad product.

Good product
I've been using this on my black lab for the past nine months and haven't seen a flea on him. Always used Frontline Plus but tried this to save a little money... glad I did. Works just as well.
Thumbs up Would recommend this product
