    Saw a commercial last night for Bio-Spot brand flea-tick treatments.

    The cost of using "vet brands" such as Frontline is putting me in the poorhouse.

    Does anyone use Bio-Spot?

    I've never heard of it, I've always used Frontline.

    do a store search for your area there are about 10 places near you that sell it.

    At $40 for 3 vials Frontline is putting me in the poorhouse and you run the risk of obtaining counterfeit product (which can be deadly) if you purchase these from pet shops or online sources.

    There are about 10 retailers in your area who sell BioSpot products.

    I get Moe's Frontline right from the vet. I'll take a look at the Bio-Spot, thanks!

    I've never had a problem affording Moe's Frontline, but I do just have the one cat to treat. I've heard of animals having allergic reactions or worse to some of those cheaper non-vet brand flea treatments, I guess they can be more toxic to the pet. That's what I'd be afraid of. The closest place to buy the Bio Spot is still half an hour away from me, but I go right past Moe's vet on my way to the office.

    Decisions, decisions.:supergrin:
     
  7. I've used bio spot for years on 3 dogs and never had a single flea problem...before that I used the cheap hartz drops and had good success as well.. My vet does not push his brands...if I have no problems with over the counter meds he says stick with it if it works..he is not out to make a killing..

    Local pet food supply place has Bio-Spot. Prices average around $13 for a 3-vial package.
