Exclamation Warning: Counterfeit Advantage and Frontline

For those of us in the northern hemisphere, it is turning toward spring and flea season, and as I was shopping for Advantage for fleas, I saw this warning of counterfeit products. The webpage tells how to discern the true product from the phone. The counterfeit killed some cats, so be very careful if you shop online.

Thanks for the info Maya! It makes me sick that people can put out products for cats that can kill cats! I only bought a flea collar once years ago and got it from my vet.

For flea control OUTSIDE that's safe to use...Thanks DW!

There are 3 grades of DE: Swimming Pool, horticultural and food grade. If using in or around pets (because whatever gets ON a pet, goes IN a pet) only Food Grade is recommended. Here's another link with with more info on the differences in grades and uses.

Fresh water, food grade diatomaceous earth

Thanks for this Maya.

I always tell people the only place you know you are getting the real thing is to buy your spot on flea product from your vet.

My vet actually deliberately undersells places like 1800PetMeds - America's Pet Medication & Pet Supplies Pharmacy, to encourage people to get their product there (at the vet), so they know they are getting safe guaranteed products.

They keep track of those online stores and keep the prices of advantage, frontline plus, and revolution about $5 lower. PLUS buying from the vet you get a manufacturer's promotion of one free application when you buy a six pack.

google counterfeit flea products and a lot of info comes up. I have tried three times to post a direct link to the maristavet page on this issue, very informative, but the forum will not allow my message through.

annoying as all heck.

http://www.marvistavet.com/html/body..._products.html

this link has excellent info, with other links to show you how to determine if the product is a fake or dangerous. bottom line though is buy these products only through your vet.

Thanks! I shall go check it out, but I think you're right...only buy through the vet. Good advice.

Not to worry, Maya, it's not your fault my computer was on the fritz for so long.
