vets are not sponsored by frontline. and of course they get a cut. so does anybody who sells it. that's part of selling products! if you buy your product from petmeds they're making money off you, too. that's why they're in business.

anyway, i use frontline plus if i have to use something. i prefer not to use anything. if ticks were not an issue i'd use advantage.

When I do use something, I use Vectra 3D. Frontline quit working for me last year.

The vet

I think I put one dose of flea/tick treatment on Sawyer this entire year and I've not seen a single bug on him. I never use it in the winter anyway.

1) how many people use frontline products?
Yes, for the dogs and the cats. They split a big dog vial in mid spring and we are usually good until late summer/early fall. Pedro got an extra dose mid summer this year as we were taking him to the woods quite a bit.

2) how many people use alternative products (please state what brands)?
We used to use advantage, but started needing the tick protection.

3) what do you think of frontline?
It works great here. I think because most people here still use nothing or the Walmart junk so the bugs haven't become immune.

4) where do you buy your products from (vet/online/shop)?
The vet

5) what do your vets recommend?
Depends on the situation, but pretty much anything except the Walmart junk LOL!

1) how many people use frontline products?
I used to use frontline, and I've always lived with multiple dogs. I have been trying to use more holistic methods, but we had a problem (rescue dog had fleas, brought them in) I have recently switched from frontline to revolution
2) how many people use alternative products (please state what brands)?
Revolution- seems to work better, also works against HW
3) what do you think of frontline?
I liked it, swore by it, and then it stopped working. I read about frontline-resistant fleas. I thought maybe the dogs got wet or something after I applied it, but it became a waste of money and it obviously wasn't working. I mean, they were getting bit and the fleas were still crawling on them. So with some reading, and suggestion of friends & family I switched
4) where do you buy your products from (vet/online/shop)? Vet. Sometimes online.
5) what do your vets recommend?
Depends on pet.

1) how many people use frontline products?

I only use it if I'll be travelling into a tick-prone area.

2) how many people use alternative products (please state what brands)?

Advantage if needed. I try to use all-natural flea sprays first.

3) what do you think of frontline?

Good for ticks, doesn't work for me with the fleas.

4) where do you buy your products from (vet/online/shop)?

Vet or chain pet store

5) what do your vets recommend?

Frontline Plus and/or Advantage for topicals, and right now, quite a few vets are pushing Comfortis.

you can also rotate in some natural flea control to give your pup a break from all those chemicals

Default thank you

thank you for all your kind responses, im particularly swayed by some comments to go natural or at least rotate between herbal and something like spot on. As always questions lead to more questions and research than answers but im more confident now!!
