We have been using Frontline applications for several years with great results. I purchased 6 applications from our vet for $79.00.
WalMart has two brands of topical applications, Hartz, 3 applications for $4.33 (3 in 1)/$7.78 for 4 in 1. The other is Sergeants, 4 applications for $4.84.

The size is similiar for all three, i.e., Frontline, Hartz and Sergeants. I looking for those who have used Hartz and/or Sergeants. If these two are as effective as Frontline, I see no reason to pay $79 for a product I can get elsewhere for a fraction of the cost.

Appreciate your response.

The ones you buy from Walmart are not effective, pretty much like using a flee collar. It also might contain a pesticide. It is better to pay the $$ and protect your pet. I have found vet offices also add a little more to the price. Try shopping online for a better price for the same product.

Try buying a larger size frontline package and splitting it for your dogs.

We just did our dogs using the 89-132lbs package. This size contains 4.02mL and will treat a 132lb dog; or 0.030mL/lb of body weight. I pulled out 1.2mL of Frontline using a syringe and needle (through the foil backing); removed the needle and used the syringe to apply the 1.2mL to our Border Collies (32-40lbs). I applied 2.25mL to our greyhound. Using this technique we are able to treat out 9 dogs with a 3 dose package of the largest size.

Instead of $86+ it cost $33 for our 9 dogs (based upon on-line prices).

WOW - I purchased 6 doses from our vet last week - price $94.40!! I do believe they are making a profit! (being kind here - my thoughts when vet tech told me the price were not "polite"!!) I'm going to that website that sells vet supplies online and see if I can get it cheaper! No way am I going to spend $94 a month!
As for Hartz and the others - no they don't work. This is going to be one bad tick year here in Kansas - DH and I have found 8 ticks total on us in the past week..............I wonder if they make Frontline for people??? LOL!

Thanks for the prompt replies. I kinda figured the Wally World stuff was not as effective. I have done an internet search since my original post and found several sources. The two lowest were Canadavet, $95.12 for 12 (free shipping), and Petsuppliesnet, $40.75 for six ($3.99 shipping per order).
I hadn't thought about buying the larger doses and splitting them, but that is a good idea. We have two Bichons, weighing in at 8lbs and 14lbs.

I get Revolution for all of our pets from www.petshed.com. Much cheaper and no prescription is required. They have been on it for years and it works very well. I know there has been some word out there that you shouldn't do this because it cold be fake stuff, but this firm is reliable. And I'm not sure the "word" isn't self-serving rather than factual, anyway!!


See ya' down the road!

If you're careful you should be able to split one of the 11-22lb doses for both your dogs.

Hey Lonnie!

Thanks for doing the research! Your prices are lower than what I was paying PetEdge, and they're usually hard to beat on most pet items.

Check E-bay and you can buy Frontline from overseas, delivered to your door, for half of what you pay at the vet.
