    Buyer Beware! Counterfeit / Fraudulent Products, October 15, 2012
    By

    This review may be quite lengthy, but as an Amazon consumer, I recommend that you thoroughly read and understand this review, as I guarantee it to be worth your time and the health and safety of your pet. Frontline Plus for Dogs when packaged and sold properly (by most Veterinarians and most reputable companies) works as it is described to work. For those instances, I would give the product a 5 star rating. But being that this is a consumer review of Frontline Plus for Dogs for the marketplace of Amazon, I would like to bring a particular experience that I became a victim of, to the attention of the consumer.

    Merial produces the product named Frontline Plus for Dogs (of various weights) for US consumers and for the consumers in International markets. Products produced for US distribution are EPA approved. Products for International markets, are not EPA approved. EPA, in this instance, stands for Environmental Protection Agency. This agency sets and enforces rules and standards that protect the environment and control pollution. If a manufacturer produces and distributes EPA and non EPA approved products, it seems like a safer option to administer the EPA approved product.

    Here goes the story of how I fell victim to a fraudulent sale of Frontline Plus for Dogs through a Seller / Store utilizing Amazon:

    Upon receipt of a Merial Frontline Plus for Dogs product from a Seller / Store on Amazon, the packaging appeared identical to those sold by my previous Veterinary purchase as well as a previous purchase of this product from Amazon directly. While the outside appeared legit, the inside contents had me on alert instantaneously. Here are a few of the red flags that came to mind: 1) The inside contents did not contain the stickers for the consumer to mark their calendar on usage dates. 2) The back of the sealed vials stated the product as Frontline Combo and not as Frontline Plus for Dogs. 3) The back of the sealed vials displayed three rows of orange that read as follows: “AD US. VET – USAGE VETERINAIRE – FOR VETERINARY USE.” 4) The plastic vials contained a pull like backing as opposed to the difficult plastic tab opening that most consumers avoid and end up puncturing the seal to pull the vial from the individual packaging. 5) The sealed area of each vial shows individually, Fipronil 10% w/v, MethroPrene 9% w/v, and 0.67 ml. (I do not recall my previous vials ever showing these figures) 6) The lot number that can be found on the outside of the box contains a lot number that is different from the lot number listed on the back of each of the inside vials.

    I made the decision to not use this product on my pet and contacted the US 800 number for Merial, the manufacturer. After explaining the item that arrived to the representative, I was provided some interesting information that confirmed that my intuition of the product I received was correct and that this product was non-other than a fraudulent product that needed to be returned to the Seller / Store that sold this item to me through the use of Amazon. I gathered the following information from the representative at Merial: 1) The box is a US EPA approved Frontline Plus for Dogs. 2) The contents are not EPA approved as it contained vials for a different country. 3) The lot numbers on the box and vials are not consistent, when they should be. This product that I fell victim to was a foreign label product and when questioning the representative as to what she would do if she had this item on hand, she said that she would not use the item and request a refund because foreign label products are not EPA approved.

    So, as the title of my review states, “Buyer Beware”, please beware and pay close attention to the product that you are receiving. If key points that I have listed in my review clearly identify your item that you received as a foreign label product, please contact the Seller / Store and request to process the return of the item immediately. Pets are like family, the last thing that I believe you should administer to your pet is a non EPA approved product.

    Additionally, if a consumer is sold a counterfeit / fraudulent item through Amazon’s Marketplace, the consumer should report it to Amazon. These fraudulent Sellers / Stores don’t belong on Amazon and the only way that we can initiate an investigation and seek their removal is to report each counterfeit situation to the attention of Amazon directly and warn potential consumers of these fraudulent Sellers / Stores.

    I had some issues initially handling my return with the Seller. I refused to pay to ship the counterfeit / fraudulent items (that shouldn’t have been sold to me in the first place) back and I insisted that the Seller either pay for the postage and tracking of the products or refund it to me with the refund of my original purchase (Including my original shipping costs). The Seller after multiple email communications emailed…

    Your Safest Bet For A Product You Wish You Didn’t Need., August 18, 2012

    This review is from: Merial Frontline Plus Flea and Tick Control for 45 to 88-Pound Dogs, 6 Applicators (Misc.)
    Allow me to caveat this review by saying out of 500 plus reviews this is the most difficult to write as I despise having to use pesticides on our dogs. That said, we live in Tick and Flea central, surrounded by deep woods and our bull dogs are in every sense of the word family. That said if you’re reading these reviews your dog or dogs are your heart and using these products is a difficult choice to make, but for most of us it’s one we have to make.

    On that note, it’s nice to be among my own kind of folks and it’s my hope the following information has some value for you.

    Frontline was first put into clinical trials in 1985 shortly after the discovery of it’s active ingredient Fipronil. It has maintained the safest albeit not the most effective treatment for fleas and ticks. However, the more effective products pose a significantly greater risk to your dog.

    It’s a slippery slope, but in evaluating what’s best for your dog and offers the most protection at the least risk Frontline and FrontLine Plus are hands down, without question your best bet.

    Most tick and flea products contain Premethrin (or related compounds) as the active ingredient. Premethrin is a lethal neurotoxin that flows through the dogs circulatory system and flushes into every major organ – including the brain where it can do dire damage. Although thousands of dogs die every year from Premethrin and the FDA has mandated a minimal use of it not to exceed 750PPM companies continue to use it because it’s cheap and effective.

    What makes Premethrin so dangerous is that it can’t distinguish between insects and mammals including human beings. It’s been known to be lethal to cats since the 1970’s. Even a slight transfer from dog to cat can result in seizures, brain damage and death.

    Premethrin is volatile as well – meaning it’s airborne properties pose a continued threat to all who breath it in – dogs and humans included.

    Frontline on the other hand uses Fipronil. Fipronil is an insecticide. Like any compound of this nature it can be lethal at too high of a dose. However studies including those from the Department of Environmental Conservation have determined time and time again that as long as the amount of Fipronil is at the correct dose for the weight and size of your dog toxicity is far easier to avoid and the product much safer for your dog.

    Unlike Premethrin, Fipronil is absorbed into the hair follicles and oil glands only.

    It is not absorbed into the dogs system nor is it volatile so you and your beloved pets and children can breath easy. The second active ingredient in FrontLine Plus is Methoprene which is a long existing and time proven IGR (insect growth regulator) it’s distributed exactly like Fipronil but only acts on flea and tick eggs and Larvae – this is important because it kills these vermin at the start of a new life cycle. What is more, the diseases that ticks carry now are infinitely more serious than the dreaded Lime disease – which for decades was the only concern.

    Competitors to Frontline (and some Vets selling other products) claim that fleas and ticks have become resistant to Frontline – hog wash. These pests have become resistant to most all pesticides and no independent research exists to confirm this claim. I can assure you I’ve researched this in the greatest depth.

    The bottom line is this – all of these products pose a risk.

    The wise choice is to minimize that risk in your effort to protect your pet from the diseases these vermin carry. Again, these diseases can be infinitely more lethal than the ingredients of the protection. To that end your safest and most effective choice is Frontline or Frontline Plus.

    In the event your pet has a bad reaction to Frontline products these are the symptoms you would see:

    * Restlessness

    * Itching

    * Vomiting

    * Difficulty Breathing

    * Lethargy

    Should these symptoms occur, of course take your pet to your Veterinarian or emergency clinic immediately. It should be a comfort to know that unlike the toxic ingredients in most other flea and tick control products severe reactions to both Fipronil and Methoprene are rare. What is more they can be neutralized quickly.

    I’ve used Frontline on my dogs for years with no problem and I still think it’s a fine product. This one star review is based on my most recent experience. I ordered this product through Amazon and received an illegal product via a third party seller. I got Frontline Combo, which is not approved by the EPA for sale in the US, in a Frontline Plus box. The lot numbers on the box and product did not match either, so clearly someone had deliberately tampered with the product. I experienced the illegal sale of a pesticide, product tampering, and mail fraud all in one transaction. A representative at Merial, the manufacturer, told me that this problem is widespread on the Internet and advised me to buy Frontline products only from my vet. I just took a look at the seller reviews and there are a number of us who have had the same experience with this seller, so I don’t think Amazon is paying attention. Please be careful about what you are putting on your beloved pets!

    Excellent Results, but Keep it Refrigerated, December 26, 2007

    This review is from: Grizzly Salmon Oil All-Natural Dog Food Supplement in Pump-Bottle Dispenser, 32 Ounces (Misc.)
    We have a nearly 9 year old Malamute. He has a fabulous coat of hair but was starting to get chronic skin problems. The salmon oil cured him. The results were quick (within a month). The only “special” advice I would offer is KEEP IT REFRIGERATED. Our malamute is obsessively food-centric… he will eat almost anything; but when the last of the large bottle I was storing at room temperature (mid sixties) went rancid he refused his kibble. I made the mistake of buying 4 large bottles all at once. I suggest you get them one at a time and keep it refrigerated (even though it says you can keep it at room temperature).

    Does this product have Mercury? I got my answer from the company., October 8, 2008

    This review is from: Grizzly Salmon Oil All-Natural Dog Food Supplement in Pump-Bottle Dispenser, 32 Ounces (Misc.)
    Thank you for your inquiry. Our oil is regularly tested for mercury, PCB’s and other toxins. All levels are below the method detection limit, meaning that the levels are so low that they cannot be detected. Because our oil is from all wild Alaskan salmon it is inherently free of the toxins that you are more likely to find in farmed fish and farmed fish products. Please contact us with any additional questions at info@grizzlypetproducts.com

    This review is from: Grizzly Salmon Oil All-Natural Dog Food Supplement in Pump-Bottle Dispenser, 32 Ounces (Misc.)
    I previously had our dogs on the liquid version of the Nordic Naturals fish oil supplements that the human members of our family have been taking. I would measure out each dog’s amount and drizzle over their dinner. They weren’t particularly thrilled with the oil addition, but it was disguised in their food. After reading about Grizzly Salmon Oil about a year ago, I decided to give it a try. It is SO much more convenient.

    I keep the pump dispenser in the fridge and then just pump the appropriate number of “squirts” onto each pooch’s breakfast and dinner…1 pump for our little one and 5 pumps for the big guy every day. Just takes seconds to do AND no measuring spoons to use and clean. The Grizzly Salmon Oil continues to give them beautiful coats, non-itchy skin, and helps to protect the health of their hearts and joints. The quality of the salmon oil and the convenience are great selling points. But the best part? Our dogs LOVE the taste.

    UPDATE (Feb, 2013) — I decided to switch to Alaskan Bear Treats for a few weeks just out of curiosity. Frankly my switch was based on a few reviews saying that it was better quality. Were my dogs missing something? Anyway, at the time I ordered, the only size available on Amazon Prime for the Alaskan Bear Treats was in 8 oz. bottles so I bought a few bottles since we have two dogs and one is really big.

    The differences? The Alaskan Bear Treats (ABT) oil is a bit of a brighter orange color and smells different. They both smell a bit “fishy,” but there seems to be some other aroma with the ABT. Maybe the rosemary extract smells stronger? Both have rosemary extract included as a natural fat preservative. There’s been some concern about the use of rosemary in dog products because of the risk of seizure. Most of what I’ve investigated seems to indicate that it is really only a concern for dogs which are already seizure-prone, though, so I haven’t felt it was an issue for mine. According to websites, both brands are extracted from wild Alaskan salmon and are tested for mercury, cadmium, and other metals/toxins (and both are considered well within safe levels).

    With both brands, my dogs retained their beautiful coats and non-itchy skin; plus they seemed just as happy with the taste of it. The most significant difference (and for me it was a biggie!) is the cost. The initial cost of the ABT is much more than GSO…although, granted, it might not have been as HUGE of a difference if I had been able to buy ABT in the 32 oz size rather than the small 8 oz bottle. The dosage on the ABT’s 8 oz bottle said 1 squirt for every 10 pounds of dog TWICE a day. Maybe not an issue with 1-2 small dogs; but this involved 24 “squirts” per day in our household and those 8 oz bottles emptied very quickly. This compares to my dogs’ 6 daily squirts of the GSO. The pump bottles don’t dispense the exact same amount (2ml for ABT vs 3.5ml for GSO according to bottle info); but still the difference in dosage equates to about 48ml/day for ABT as opposed to just 21ml/day for GSO. I’m finishing up my last bottle of Alaskan Bear Treats, but have already ordered a new large bottle of Grizzly Salmon Oil. The ABT appears to be a quality supplement also; but, with no apparent added benefits, my wallet can’t handle the difference in price.
