Banfield First Shield Trio is Horrible
I bought this item on 5/28/14 and put on my dog 6/11.The product not only cause discomfort for my dog it didn't even work. She was covered in fleas less than a week after application. I feel so bad for my dog due to her misery. I am not able to afford to keep trying things that don't work. I am so glad I didn't by the 4 month supply. Please heed my warning it is not worth the money nor the agony that your pet will go through (weither it is the skin reaction or it just not working)
WARNING: DO NOT use First Shield Trio!!
OH MY LORD!! PLEASE, PLEASE READ! I am not saying this is going to happen to every dog, I am not saying this is going to happen to your dog, I am just letting you know this COULD happen and DID, to mine today!!! ...And before you go asking questions like, "Did you give the right size?" or "Did you apply it correctly?," If you knew me and my dog, you'd know you don't have to ask silly questions like that. Last night I applied a tube of First Shield Trio to Pancho. After returning home a few hrs later, I was surprised to find Pancho sleeping in my closet (totally weird, but he's a lovely weird little Chihuahua.) Cut to this morning..I am awakened to Pancho running around my house like a MAD man! He is sprinting, jumping, colliding into furniture and acting like he is trying to come out of his own skin! I instantly think, "Dang, i bet that stuff has really activated any fleas he may have had! Poor guuuuy." After about 20 minutes of all that I could handle of that, I washed the stuff off and noticed all of these tiny little patches of red near his belly and rear that looked like little burns. I am furious and feel so terrible for this little guy. The bath definitely seemed to help comfort Pancho, but the story doesn't END HERE!! Enter PHASE II: After the itching/burning seemed to subside somewhat, Pancho began this bizarre pacing, just steadily walking the perimeter of my apartment and looking at me as if he could not STOP!! His breathing then became labored. Then I knew this was getting serious. I reached for the baby Benadryl, thinking he may be having an allergic reaction. It definitely helped. His breathing has become normal again but he STILL cannot sit still. I try petting him, talking to him, the only thing that seems to help is actually walking him. We just came in from nearly a 2 hour walk now and I finally feel that he has calmed down. He is restfully sleeping next to me now and his breathing and heart rate have returned to normal. I thank the Lord every day for this little kid and know you probably feel the same for your pet. I am not trying to bash any companies, ruin anyone's business or say even that this is a bad product. If it works for your pet, fantastic, I wish I could've had similar results. I am only merely sending out a warning because there was NOT one on the tube I bought that said THIS could happen! Buyer just BEWARE.
First Shield Trio is bad for pets!!
I used this product on my poodle and she is having a terrible experince. I used it last month an it cost me 240.00 at the Banfield vet. The vet claimed my dogs vomiting and strange behavior was not because of the First Shield,so I purchased and used the product today. Aftr an hour, my dog became hyper an thn stated slow down. I called the Emergency vet and the tech was nice enough to tell me the same thing happened to a cat last night. At her advice, I bathed te dog in blue dawn to get the rest of the pesticide, yes, First Shield Trio is a pesticide off of my dog. I will watch her tonight and may need to take her back to the vet in the am. I plan to pursue this matter legally as Banfield should not sell such a product to then turn ard and profit from administerin services to try and remedy the problem.
FirstSheild Trio- Toy Poodlw
When I got Midnight (our toy poodle), we took him to Bnafield. His very first visit they gave him some shots and medication and their flea products. After a couple of hour he began vomiting everywhere. I though that we might have to take him to the hospital. His next visit I refused to give him all the medication at once, instead we spaced them out. Well, after changing nothing but the flea medication, he started vomiting again and this lasted about 6 hours. So, we well not used this product again. I'm will try advantageX next time. Pissed

First Shield Trio
I bought this product and can't believe the horrible problems my pets suffered. I had to take them into Emergency Pet Hospital the same day I applied it to their skin. Both dogs had severe hyperactivity, muscle spasms, and itching. They were then seen the next day because they still were in terrible shape. We were afraid they were going to die. Five days later they are still having itching, and muscle spasms. They are currently on muscle relaxers and Benedryl. They are still miserable and should have had to go through this ordeal. I was trying to keep them healthy and safe but, instead I'm afraid they might have permanent damage.
