    Pet Armour is NOT the same thing. When it was originally released, there was a pet armour plus which was the same ingredient as Frontline Plus. However, there were a lot of problems people were having when they switched and it was assumed that although the active ingredients were the same that the formulation was not even close and did not work as well. They have since discontinued that product. The new product has the same ingredient as Frontline Top Spot which is not the same as Frontline Plus and has different ingredients. Even Frontline states that Top Spot is a lower end product than the Plus.

    From late April through about mid July the ticks are quite thick where we live. We've been using Frontline Plus for about ten years now and (knock on wood) we have never had a tick attach itself to one of our dogs. But we're also diligent about going over our dog(s) after each training session.

    We use frontline plus on our Chessie. Our vet advised us that it was the safest product on the market for our situation, since we have 4 kids, one is a baby who will undoubtedly snuggle the dog and lick her fingers at the same time (yuck). I got the impression that his opinion was that it was very effective, didn't have a lot of side effects, and would be safe for our kids to be in close contact with the dog and was safe for me to apply to the dog while I was still pregnant. I don't know if there are other safe options out there, but that's what led us to go with frontline.

    Treat the yard with fire ant granules early spring and mid summer. It kills fleas well. Plus preventative for dogs.

    Just bought Pet Armor Pro Advanced at Wally world, and ran a test in Northern Ohio for two days, Tick capital of the world. Not one tick!! It's guaranteed to be just as effective as FrontlineŽ Plus at killing adult fleas, ticks, and lice because it has the same active ingredient, fipronil, as in Frontline products. And PetArmorPro Advanced takes protection to another level with the second most recommended active ingredient, permethrin, which is clinically proven to work faster and repel adult fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes, unlike Frontline Plus, which has no repellent properties. $29 bucks for three months!!

    Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

    There are things you just can't fix. Can't fix stupid, can't fix a neutered dog & you can't fix junk!

    This is the new product that is now back on the market after the original one was removed. This one may be better. Sure would be nice for the price.
