FRONTLINE isn't what it used to be - Vet supported claim
Reviewed in the United States on June 19, 2018
WOW... Frontline is usually a great product. I had to take my 50lb dog to the Vet cause he kept biting at his tail and behind. Got so bad that his hair was falling out near his behind. I keep up on my pets heart worm, tape worm, and flea treatments religiously. So when he was biting I would casually glance for fleas, he has a dark coat and did not see any. So I gave him an oatmeal bath thinking his skin may be dry. He kept biting and scratching. Then I bought some topical spray for mites and skin fungi and it seemed to give him temporary relief but not much. I then took him to the vet and I had to wait for 40 minutes in a room with him. I then really started to look in his fur and found fleas! They were difficult to see, even in his white fur and he is short haired. The vet then told me that Frontline early this year did something and their product is no longer as effective as it used to be. She had received this complaint from many pet owners. SO... Frontline no longer delivers on their name brand, BEWARE. She gave my pet Bravecto which is expensive, but worth it. Almost immediately after he chewed up the tablet he found relief and me too. He was given some steriods to dry the infections from biting so much and antibody medicine. By that evening my pet was sleeping soundly and not once bit or scratched at his tail or behind. I am going to use Bravecto from now on. If Bravecto makes the same mistake as Frontline then I will let people know and switch to another brand.
