Both the Australian and US products contain the same active ingredients, Fipronil & (S)-Methoprene.
However, the products sold by Pet Shed are sold in Australian packaging which has not been approved for sale in the US. As a consequence, the Australian packaging does not have EPA approval and the sale and purchase of products in the Australian packaging may be illegal in the US.

Customer ReviewsFrontline Plus
Frontline Plus for small dogs is the best!
I have bought Frontline Plus for small dogs on the Petshed website numerous times and will continue to do so. The product works extremely well - I live in an area full of deer and my dog cannot avoid deer ticks. However he has not gotten infected once since I started using Frontline. He also loves the water and knowing that Frontline is not affected by water is another plus. It is an easy medication to apply. My dog and I are extremely satisfied customers!

Good price but fleas are rampant!
Order arrived in timely manner. We have kept on schedule applying the treatment. However, the fleas are running rampant on our cat, flea eggs are dropping everywhere in our home, he scratches constantly, flea specks (blood) on him and everything he touches. My guess is he is anemic now, and will have to take him to vet because of the raging flea problem, He's had the medicine for three months, so I'm giving up on it's use. Really disappointed.

I have been using frontline for years now and have always been very happy with the results. It works especially well for ticks. I feel safe using this product and will continue using it for the foreseeable future.
