Any input or experience using this? It sounds great and lots of good reviews, but I like hearing from one person I can verify as real first.

It's a monthly flea treatment that is given orally. It's pricey, but not much more than advantage. I think it was $80 for a six pack but I read a lot of people were just spending the $4 or $5 more for the maximum weight size and splitting the pills up to get more use out of it. Not sure about trying that but thought I'd mention it for input.

Thanks!

Love it and you will find with giant breed dogs that it's hard to get all the frontline liquid to absorb. Most of it just soaks up in the hair with makes it not very affective. I had great luck with frontline in smaller dogs but not so much with the big guys.

I think I looked into that but if I recall correctly it doesn't protect against ticks. I could be thinking about a different one.

I typically use Front Line, but last year we tried the Walmart brand which I believe is called Pet Armor. It seemed to work well for my dogs.

i see a lot of bad reviews for one i have. This is something my vet wanted me to try but looks like some dogs it does not agree with.

Last year we had fleas really bad and nothing would kill them until we used diatomaceous earth. We have not used anymore flea treatments on our dogs. We put this all over our house (fossilized plants) and made sure we put extra under the couch where the dogs like to sleep and shortly after we had no more fleas. Supposed to kill all bugs and is not poison so you can roll around in it if you want (nick will)...Only issue is its a really light powder so you will be wipin it off your stuff forever!!! Not a big deal. Better than havin fleas and feels good on da skin! lol
some people eat it to improve their health or something (drink it)
dont let it get near your dubia colony

be careful with that stuff. That's made by hartz and if you read the reviews online it has done a lot of harm. All you have to do is read the potential side effects and that should make up your mind. I went thru it with my dog and will never touch that brand name again.
