We use advantage multi. The tubes come in different size so we get the size that is appropriate for a 6lb and under dog, which, luckily, is Miya exactly. So there are no leftovers to store. How big are the tubes of the other flea meds?

Interesting thread. I just had this discussion with my vet on Saturday when I took DeeDee and Dexter in for their 16 week appointment. My vet stressed that online pharmacies may be acquiring meds from third party sources which in turn could be offering out of date or even counterfeit products. He says this is the main reason why the pharmaceutical manufacturers will not warrant these products. I'd rather not take the chance with my babies, so I going to eat the extra cost and play it safe.

I just did price comparison on heartworm meds for my 5 month old and found dr. foster and smith to be reasonable in price even having to pay shipping compared to petmeds and other sites. It took about a week from placing the order to them shipping since they had to call my vet to get the info after they were unable to find the prescription that was faxed in. My vet never said anything about using dr. foster and smiths when I asked if they would accept a request from them for the heartworm meds for Cricket so unsure if it falls into the same issues as petmeds or not.

The "rumor" that Frontline has lost its effectiveness is just that....a rumor!

My Vet started using another product for flea and tick prevention. One of the marketing tools of the new product is to claim that Frontline is no longer effective. Frontline is still useful in flea and tick prevention.

I was never comfortable putting the whole tube of Frontline on Pearl, she is so tiny. But the Vet says that there is a huge safety margin. I still don't like doing it but the ticks are soooooo bad here in Delaware. Pearl ran into a nest of baby ticks, called seed ticks. She was covered with them!! It was horrible. Thankfully, seed ticks rarely carry Lyme disease or Ehrlichiosis. Pearly still had to have blood testing done to be safe.

As far as using Pet Meds, IMO, as long as the products are not outdated and they are in the orginial packaging, they are OK. Some Vets will NOT write scripts for Pet Meds. 1st off it cuts in on the profits of the Vet practice. Also, any med not purchased at the Vet is subject to improper dosing, etc.

I just wanted to follow up with my pet meds question. I ordered Trifexis and Heartgaurd from them. Each came in original packing with no dates blocked out. Expiration dates were in 2014 and 2015. I feel I got the same product as from the vet for a savings of $60. This answers concerns about the possibility of old products with blacked out dates or products not in original packaging that came up in this thread.
