@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.

@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.
