Default Update -- Frontline Plus ordered is counterfeit

Thank you all for your responses to my earlier post. Aariana sent me some sites to read about the company I ordered from and there were only terrible reviews. She also sent me a site to find out if it was counterfeit(sp?) and it is. Ollie seems to be okay, but today I washed the area with Dawn before giving him his bath. On Monday I'm calling the company that makes FLPlus and see if they want me to send the stuff to them. Now I have to wait the 30 days before putting the FLPlus on him again. Guess I learned the hard way that the cheapest price isn't always the best way to go! Please pray Ollie (or any of us since we have been petting him, etc.) have any problems from this stuff.

I am so sorry you bought a counterfeit product.

Have you seen this from the EPA?

I am so sorry that you have this worry, shame on whoever is doing this !!! Hope everything is ok...

A few years ago there was human medicine that was sold to pharmacies for a cheaper price and was also found out to be counterfeit. Some patients suffered serious side effects ! The seller AND the pharmacies were to blame

I don't trust to buy any meds or vitamins, prescriction or not, online for myself or pets, too risky, and who knows what they are actually putting in it or if there may be long term effects that aren't showing up at the time it was given.

I feel more comfortable buying from my vet but don't like the high prices either.

That almighty DOLLAR $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Did you click on the links I posted? #2 in the second link from the EPA says this:

How should I dispose of a counterfeit product?

If you discover that you have one of the counterfeit products, you should contact your local solid waste agency* for information on proper disposal in your community. Your local government may recommend that you take the product to a household hazardous waste collection program. If allowed by your local government, you may put the counterfeit product in your trash. You may also contact an organization named Earth 911 at 1-800-CLEANUP or Earth911.com - Find Where and How to Recycle to obtain community disposal information. Some general information about pesticide disposal is also available.
To identify your local solid waste agency, look in the government section of your phone book under categories such as solid waste, public works, or garbage, trash or refuse collection.

I'm so sorry that the Frontline Plus was counterfeit, now i'm wondering if the Advantage i bought from Frontline Plus for Dogs - Flea & Tick treatment - discount prices for Frontline Plus at BudgetPetCare.com is counterfeit, i got this link from Lynda's post about getting Frontline for cheap. https://spoiledmaltese.com/forum/52-m...lus-cheap.html

Debbie, read the links that Marj posted above. Might help you determine if it is counterfeit. Is BudgetPetCare.com in the US?

Looks like it is a Canadian pharmacy.
