Well, I am definitely skeptical about new stuff (I'm a nurse, and was a vet tech in the past), and as Dr. Mac says, anything that lasts 3 months... if it's a problem, look out! I was beyond upset when Novartis did away with plain PROGRAM, (lufenuron), because that's all I used on my dogs, and I understood how it worked. It's not an insecticide. Yes they occasionally got fleas but very few. I'd occasionally use Frontline. Now I use Capstar maybe twice a year.

I was thrilled to find a made in America generic combo of lufenuron and capstar. Discussed it with my vet before giving, and 2 months on, no problem. It controls the flea population in our house and yard and that's what's important to me. After Ally had seizures on one dose of Sentinel, I got very leery of all these oral flea products. Luckily heartworm is not an issue here, I just got the Sentinel to continue getting the lufenuron component.

Good stuff! Thanks to you all for replying. Seems we're all in the same boat with this one. Rowing the other way. :)

And thanks Dr. Mac for weighing in on this one!
