We are a small business striving to make a difference in the lives of your pets. After working nationwide rescue for several years and having several un-adoptable rescued animals to care for, my family and I decided to open lil Country Paws to help with Vet expenses; but still wanted to continue helping animals. We now donate 5 % of all our sales to an organization called IMOM that help sick, injured and abused pets. To learn more about the work that IMOM is involved in, write us here at lil Country Paws. Thank you for stopping by.
HOW DO I TELL IF A FLEA MEDICATION IS EPA APPROVED?
Our Flea Medications are EPA approved. There are alot of illegally imported flea medications for sale on the internet. You should always ask if the Frontline Plus, Advantage or K9 Advantix is EPA Approved. If the medication has an expiration date it is an imported or counterfeit brand. EPA approved flea medications do not expire.
Many sites selling foreign or counterfeit products use pictures of the American products to deceive their customers.You should always contact the online website and verify that the product is labeled for sale in the U.S. before purchasing. Simply ask if the products they are selling are USA EPA approved. Asking these questions before purchasing will help ensure that you get genuine products for your pet.
How can I tell if The Frontline Plus is counterfeit?
There are several indications that you may have received counterfeit Frontline Plus. It may be difficult to distinguish the counterfeit products from the EPA approved product. If your package fails any of the following, it is likely to be counterfeit.
* The product may not be in the required child resistant packaging.
* The lot numbers of the individual applicators and the box do not match.
* A legitimate package should also have the following:
* After you open the package, each individual applicator has a label that includes the registrant's name "Merial;" the product name; percentage (%) of active ingredient(s) (fipronil for Frontline Top Spot products; and fipronil and (S)-methoprene for Frontline Plus products)
* The package should contain the instruction leaflets that are required by U. S. law providing emergency numbers, first aid statements, etc.
* The EPA registration number and the net contents in fluid ounces (fl. oz.) is on the applicator package (not in metric measure, i.e., ml)
* "To remove applicator, use scissors or lift and remove plastic tab to expose foil, then pull down." should be on the package. The writing should be in English only.
* U.S Products are E.P.A. approved and the E.P.A. DOES NOT give product expiration date.
How can I tell if the Advantage or K9 Advantix is counterfeit?
Inspecting the Tube (applicator) is the only way to identify counterfeit Advantage Flea Control. The box and package insert are identical, but by looking at the tube you can make sure the label has the following:
1. The first give away of a counterfeit is the language. It must be in English, If it is a foreign language (most likely French or German), it is counterfeit.
2. "Warning" and "Keep out of reach of children" will be on all legitimate products as well as "Bayer" the manufacturer and the EPA registration number.
3. The label will list the active ingredient and the box will match the ingredient and strength (such as 9.1% imidacloprid on both label and box).
4. U.S Products are E.P.A. approved and the E.P.A. DOES NOT give product expiration dates.
