I use it on my Great Dane/Border Collie and it works fine. This was after Frontline stopped working on him. I think many times it just depends what brand will or won't work on your dog. If it DOES work, this is a good deal. If it doesn't work, then you don't have to buy it.

That does not make sense. Frontline has the same active ingredient as this product. It's called fipronil. If this product does not work then Frontline should not be working either.

It has more to do with what the fleas in your area are resistant to

No it doesn't make sense. However, I experienced the same thing with my 3 cats. Frontline didn't work at all, Pet Armour didn't work for the full month, but Sentry fiproguard does. All have the same active ingredients. Speaking from a pharmacy background, my guess is the "carrier" ingredients that first allow the pesticide into the blood stream and then allow it to collect in the oil and fur are different. Hence why different products with the same active ingredient work differently on different pets. Two of my cats have long fluffy fur, the other has short with a thick undercoat. I used Hartz for a while, until, I believed, caused the death of one of my cats that I had used it to treat for the first time. Again the other 3 were fine and never had any issues with it.

I'm trying to imagine a great dane/boarder collie mix. My head says "does not compute" Confusedlaugh out loud

Thanks for the explanation. I knew that the active ingredients were the same, that is actually why I tried the PetArmor, because I didn't want to risk trying an entirely different product. I just always assumed that the reason one stopped working but the other DID work was because of the INACTIVE ingredients - but your explanation seems much more plausible. I have ALSO tried the PetACTION and it works with my dog also.

And sometimes I find it hard to wrap my head around a great big huge dog who is NEVER still. My house has paid the price!!

Sorry bumblingblonde about your cat's demise, however, coming from someone who worked for vets and has done a lot rescuing, let me tell you, we will NEVER knowingly use Hartz. From collective experience over 20+ years, Hartz and Sergeant are very inconsistent in their ingredients and about 18 yrs ago even Hartz flea shampoo was so inconsistent in the concentration, it killed smaller dogs and cats. Never will use it knowingly. Again, sorry you found out the super hard way. Condolences.

In my 18 years of owning a high volume veterinary practice I have never seen any differences between Frontline or any other fipronil generics. Fipronil does not need a carrier as you don't want it to penetrate the skin. If it gets in the body then it will be quickly excreted. The fipronil is directly absorbed by the lipids in the skin and hair follicles. That is how it lasts up to 90 days for fleas. The extra ingredients are only an organic solvent for applying the topical medicine. Personally I use this product on my dog. But keep in mind that there is significant resistant to fipronil in fleas. That's why many people comment that it doesn't work.
