biospot

Has anyone ever used the biospot flea and tick treatment? Does it work well? I'm kind' of wary because it is so cheap, but I like that it does for mosquitos also.

Re: biospot

I've been using it for 7 years and I LOVE it. For my dogs, it works better than Frontline. I never see ticks on my dogs while on Biospot, but I have seen ticks on my dogs while on Frontline.

Re: biospot

Yes we are going on our 3rd season using it on both our gsd's and 3 cats too. It does every bit that Fronline plus did we are very pleased with it. Only thing we noticed it seems to take a little longer to be absorbed, but otherwise we like the results.

Re: biospot

I think this is the product that my mother used and it ended up costing her over $200 in vet bills when her dog had a major reaction to it.

Re: biospot

Any dog can have a reaction to ANYTHING unfortunately. I've used it on 6 of my own dogs in the 7 years and not one has ever had a reaction. I've used it on foster dogs too and no problems either.

Re: biospot

Me too. I've used biospot on my 4 dogs and this will be the 6th year in a row (haven't started using it just yet this season). I've been very happy with the results.

Re: biospot

I used it on Kenya and two months after I got her (she was on BioSpot and I kept using it), she had fleas.

This last month, I didn't have enough Frontline Plus so I had to put BioSpot on Coke.

Neither dog has had any reactions, it just didn't work on Kenya so I switched. My vet has really good prices on Frontline Plus anyway.

Re: biospot

dogs are sensitive to certain things just like people are. its trial and error with any of these products.

i use frontline and have for 6 years. never see any ticks/fleas on my dogs. however i know several people who use bio-spot and have no problems.

Re: biospot

I've seen more reactions on the boards to Biospot, but that doesn't mean that all dogs will react to it.
