Thanks Marj! Won't be ordering from them! Around Durham the best price is at Lowe's. They didn't have the one for small dogs right before ordering online.

Thank you Marj for posting the links and thank you Donna for bringing this up, i have already used one dose on all of the kids and it was about 3 weeks ago. All of the directions are in english only, but it was manufactured in Germany so i'm thinking counterfeit. I'll call their vet on Monday and i'm also contacting the company because i spent close to $80 or more and i'm hoping for a refund, but not going to hold my breath waiting. I just can't believe i did something so stupid.

IMO, This should be a STICKEY THREAD. If not already, I didn't see one.

Thanks Donna and Marj for bringing this to our attention and the links.

Maybe you could "report" the thread and ask that it be pinned?

Folks - just saw the request to make a sticky. I'm going to do so - if you think it should be moved to the health and behavior section, let us know and we'll do that as well.

Hello folks! This is unfortunately not uncommon if you are ordering products outside of the US. I had a bad experience too with a Canadian place (wasn't for Frontline, but a different med), and now I do my best to order from venders that are IN the US, even if it does cost a little more at least I know my baby is getting the right thing. I just don't want to take that risk ever again. I also take the xtra step by figuring out whether the vendor I'm ordering from is licensed and regulated (whether they have a valid pharmacy license) even though Frontline is over-the-counter.

For the past year or so, I've been ordering from Californiapetpharmacy.com and while there's shipping involved and I might see some crazy cheap prices on some other site for meds, this place is in the US, licensed and inspected- not like those Canadian places where we're never completely certain.

Maggie - I would think that it should be moved to health forum since it's so pointedly a health related product.

Tammy, there was no sign the company wasn't a USA company. Didn't know until I received the package and opened it. I do try to make sure where I order from is a US company, just screwed up this time!!
