It is that time again for us to buy doses of flea meds for Boo. I was just curious to see if anyone had used the Kirkland brand of dog flea meds from Costco? I normally use Advantix II which always seems to work and we have had no troubles. Looking for feedback and if anyone has used the Kirkland/Costco brand.
I've never tried them, but I would only get flea medicine through your vet or a similarly reputable veterinary organization. Unless the product is exactly the same chemical at exactly the same dosage and is made with exactly the same standards of quality, I wouldn't risk it.
For the most part I've been happy with Kirkland (check out the dog food labels.) This one is new to me, so I tried to find an answer to your question. I did find a discussion on another forum, dated April 2012. This is what one poster had to say:
THANK YOU!! I would never want to risk anything on my dog and her health is the most important thing to me.
I decided on Trifexis, because one pill takes care of heartworm, fleas and intestinal worms.
I wouldn't use them. I would stick to the main brands that vets carry which are Advantage/Advantix, Frontline, or Comfortis/Trifexis. Buying the wrong type of flea prevention can kill your dog or cause very serious side effects. I'd stick to products that are known, tested, and guaranteed.
Thank you JUlie for your research! Yes, I would stay far, far away from anything like BioSpot. I've read reports of severe injury caused by that stuff, and seen my co-worker's dog get very sick from it.
