Product does not work
I have used Frontline for years and never once have seen a flea on my dog. I tried Sentry Fiproguard for Dogs and we can't seem to keep the fleas away!
I guess that's why I get for trying to save a little money and support a new brand...
I wouldn't waste $5.00 on this product. It just does NOT work.

I'm not sure why this product is rated so low.
There is a considerable amount of fleas around my area, and this worked for my two dogs (one pit mix and another chihuahua/pug mix). When we got the pit mix, she already had a few fleas (maybe she caught them that day, so there were no eggs), and she is now flea-free (but I don't think the fleas had a chance to infest our house.) I actually started off by giving her two of my smaller dog's dosages as an emergency (didn't quite get to the store to buy her some flea stuff and didn't know if her old owner gave her some that month), so she didn't even have a completely full dosage (based on weight). And it was only the regular Fiproguard.
I'm not saying that if your dog already has fleas to use this product, especially if it's not the one that kills the eggs (which they do sell, not sure if Petsmart sells it, though.)
I'm just saying that this product does work, even despite how I used it. If your dog has already had fleas and has laid eggs on your dog and in your house, then you need to use a product that kills the eggs, as well as exterminating the ones in your house. If you actually read closely, this product does not kill eggs. I saw one review where the person warned others that this product is not like Frontline Plus, even though the product doesn't even claim that it is. It specifically says that it's the same as Frontline Top Spot.
Also, I started using this product on our smaller dog this year, and she is flea-free also. So it definitely does work, even though it's cheaper. I'm really glad they came out with this product, because with the number of pets we have, parasite prevention can get pretty expensive. I usually end up spending at least a hundred dollars a year on it.
In addition, I use the cat version on the cats, and they, too, don't have fleas. They do go out occasionally on their cat leashes.
And one last thing... If you have a flea infestation, or if your dog has even eaten the fleas, you need to deworm them for tapeworms, because this is how they get tapeworm. Petsmart sells products for this.
