Frontline Plus has been approved for sale in Australia by the APVMA. The US equivalent of this product has been approved for sale by the EPA.
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.
If swallowed call a poison control center or doctor immediately for treatment advice. For hazards to domestic animals the 24 hour assistance line within the U.S.A. is 1-800-660-1842.

Generic Frontline Smells Bad
I agree with the other reviews that the generic Frontline smells very bad so beware. The smell only lasts a few days so if you can put up with that it is OK, but it reminds me of a liquid fly trap I once bought - smell was horrible but it sure worked on flies. I am throwing this stuff away and ordering the real Frontline.

We have always used Frontline plus, however we tried the generic brand because it was less expensive. It was not a good choice. Our dogs stayed covered in fleas. Frontline has been the best choice for us.

BEWARE: Generic is NOT the Same
I used the generic Frontline on my medium dog and used the brand name on my small dog. The brand name had almost no odor, and dried within just a few minutes. The generic had an overwhelmingly bad odor (a mix of chemicals and fish), and 3 hours later was still not dry and still smelled bad. The generic stuff was so horrible that I threw the remaining treatments away. I'm just grateful my dog didn't have a bad reaction to the stuff (other than rolling in dirt 3 hours later in an attempt to get rid of it).
