I just recently purchased Sergeant’s Flea and Tick Squeeze-on for Dogs for our lab/pit mix. However, I have yet to apply it because I read on the Internet that some people’s dogs had a terrible reaction to their products. Most of the reactions were due to their Gold brand, which is not the product I bought. The product I purchased is in a blue package. I also did a search on Permthrin, which is the agent that makes up the majority of the product. Individuals that posted about this product said that dogs that had a negative reaction probably were given too much at a time. Does anyone have any information about Sergeant’s products? Some people said that their dogs had seizures, frothed at the mouth, and had to spend several days at the vet’s after using the Gold brand. I don’t want my dog suffering the same fate. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I have seen a couple of brands like sergeants introduce new products in the last few months, and for the most part, these products do not work. However, Frontline seems to have lost the patent they’ve had for years, and now these other brands can make a product with the exact same ingredients as frontline. I have tried “pet armor”- which is Walmart’s brand, and I have seen a similar product at Publix(and it might have been sergeants). Look at the boxes, and see which brand has the same contents in the same amount as frontline, and whatever brand name it is under doesn’t matter. I have used the Pet Armor on Lillie, who has severe flea bite dermatitis, and my boss(that has 3 dogs) used it as well, and it works exactly as well as frontline, but instead of $50 a box, we paid $28+tax.
