We have 1 dog and two cats. We have always used Frontline for their monthly flea prevention from 1800PetMeds. I was ordering more this weekend and saw another product, Flea4X which is 1800PetMeds brand. Has anyone ever used this product before? I have always steered away from off brands of flea prevention because I am just not sure about them. I'll probably stick with the Frontline but just curious to see if anyone else has used it before.

Read the ingredients to see if they are similar

We've usually used ValleyVet for dog and cat meds - always more reasonable than most other on-line.

The 6 pack of 23-44 lbs Frontline Plus
ValleyVet $68
1-800 $71
Jeffers $73

Tell them you'll be happy to if they'll price match and "waive" the shipping and handling. grin

I was going to say that the best way to prevent fleas is to keep your pets away from Peepers. laugh

When I was a kid, I used to do most of the flea and tick baths for my dad's clinic (as many of know, he's a veterinarian). I had so many pyrethrins in my system, that I was a walking insect repellant! We use to laugh about the fact that mosquitos wouldn't come near me.
I seriously hope I dont glow in the dark. laugh
