Has anyone seen the flea and tick medication that they are now selling at Costco? It is their own brand.
I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about it. I went to buy my dogs frontline and spent $70 on a six pack (at least in my area that is a very good price) and I saw the Costco brand next to it for $20. With the price difference I couldn’t help but wonder if it’s any good or safe for your dog.

@roxy821: I’ve seen it too, but I stuck with what I know. I am worried that she would have an allergic reaction or it wouldn’t work at all. It’d be nice to read some reviews though!

We tried it, and it doesn’t work– I very strongly recommend sticking with Frontline. Or, if ticks aren’t too bad in your area, you can try Trifexis (from the vet) which protects them against fleas, heart worm, and intestinal parasites. We use it year round, then during hunting season we add Frontline in to take care of ticks as well. It’s a lot cheaper than Frontline & Heart Guard year round.

Are you talking about Capstar? I saw that on Costco’s website – it’s not just sold by Costco, other places sell it too. It looks like a treatment for fleas.
I stick to Frontline, as I’ve had good experience with it. My sister tried the K9 version and her dog ended up having seizures and had to be rushed to the vet. After that, I tend to limit my change with things, especially since my dogs do have allergies.

@MissPumpkinPie- I stuck with Frontline too, but I couldn’t help but wonder since the price was great.
@juliette.eliza- Thanks for sharing. I have border collies who need to be on Interceptor due to fact that Heartguard could actually kill them due to a collie gene that they have, but it’s great that there is something else out there for dogs.
@snoie- The brand was Kirkland which is Costco brand name. That is terrible about your sister’s dog, porr thing.

@roxy821: I googled around about it and there are some posts about it out there. You want to compare the active ingredients – some people were saying it was similar to bio spot (?) which has gotten a bad rep.

@snoie- I am doing a little research now and I found the same thing.
There does seem to be a generic version of Frontline Plus that was released this year called Fibroguard Plus. Anyone heard of this?
I obviously would never switch to a product that would be less effective or harmful to my dogs, but I can’t help but be interested in those products that are less than half the price.
