I read this on another site and thought it would be good for as many people as possible to read it.
This is a new product designed to be a more effective product than

I've always wondered why more dogs don't have a reaction to any of the flea/tick meds that are out there. Actually that stuff is poison. I use Revolution because that is the only product my 11 yr. old Yorkie, Rosie, will tolerate. Even at that I use the puppy product on her. Scary stuff, if you ask me.

i have seen another post on ProMeris on another site, and how bad it was, so i wont be buying it. i stick with frontline and heartguard for Teddy, and he has had no ill effects. Thanks for sharing this!
