    After using this product on three cats and one dog, all seem to have more fleas than when treated. And when I checked to see who the five star reviews are, three out of five had terrible experiences and one of them just said, “we were one of the lucky ones”. Terrible products....

    I put this product on a healthy cat that had a few fleas, within a couple of days my cat was infested with fleas. I went from seeing only 1 or 2 on her (is why I used this product) to being covered with them (even had tiny ones trying to get in her eyes when bathing this product off). I was worried when she started to get weak and was going to take her to the vet today but I was too late, my fault for not staying with my normal brand, and she passed last night. Please save yourself from the heartache and stay away from this product. I will never again wander from my normal product again (Frontline). I hope my review is falls in the guidelines so as to be published because I do not want anyone to go through this.

    I just noticed my cat's oozing, bleeding wounds around his neck from their collar. And when I say around I mean AROUND. It's not a sore or two. It's one continuous wound. The collar was literally covered in blood and flesh on the other side, almost like it grew into him, except it didn't because it wasn't tight enough. I followed the directions correctly, I bought the right weight.... I have a vet appointment in an hour. I'm guessing it's going to cost me $500 or more to have him treated. He's a big guy too.... close to 30lbs, it's not like he is some dainty, fragile cat. These collars should not exist.

    Purchased Sentry prescription flea topical for may cat. I put it on between the shoulder blades. Not even 2 minutes after application she started acting weird and saliva was hanging from her mouth. She hasn't thrown up m... yet.. I tried to wash it off with a dry towel at first.. then a damp towel to try to get some of it off. It was the lemongrass scent. I'm not sure if that is what may have done it, the scent was very strong. This just happened, so I will be watching her throughout the night. I definitely will NOT BE BUYING THIS PRODUCT EVER AGAIN!

    I bought the Purrscriptions flea collar for cats and in her correct weight range. Upon opening it the smell of the collar gagged me, and it was slimy to the touch. That should have been a red flag for me. It did nothing to prevent or repel fleas, and the collar burned her neck. She is now raw, and missing about 3 inches in width and from ear to ear on the underside of her neck. She has worn several flea collars over the past several years, and never has this happened. I bought this for the first time at TSC because I forgot to grab one for her at Walmart while I was there. So I bought that one because it was the least expensive one they had. Now my cat is sort of skittish, she isn't always loveable so I didn't notice her burn until several weeks of her wearing the darn thing. The guilt and sympathy I feel for her is immense and I can't stop giving her enough treats. Please do not buy this product. If I could give it zero stars I would.

    Unfortunately I did not research this product before I bought it. I put it on my 8 year old cat, who is 12 pounds. All night long she was rubbing her neck along the carpet. I woke up to cat fur all over the carpet ! And she had a big bald spot on the back of her neck where we had put the flea drops. Her neck was oily and greasy too. I did the best I could to get the product off of her. This product needs to be recalled!

    I have read a lot of negative reviews on Sentry pet products. Dogs are like people. Some products work on one but not the other. I have been using Sentry Natural Defense flea & tick drops on my Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix dog Jack. He is 13 lbs and I have been using Sentry Natural Defense on him for around 2 years now. for Jack it has been working great. No fleas ever!

    I read reviews where pet owners do not like the smell. I do not think the smell is that bad and it only lasts a few days. I have read reviews where pet owners that have white dogs, it leaves a yellow streak on their fur. My dog Jack is mostly white and also the yellow streak does not last. I like the fact that Sentry Natural Defense is made with all natural ingredients. I use all natural products for my dog. I like it that Sentry Natural Defense is way cheaper than flea prevention products that use poisonous chemicals. I cannot speak for all of Sentry pet products because I only use Sentry Natural Defense. I guess the old saying, "you can please some of the people some of the time, but you cannot please all the people all the time", holds true until this day. David

    Sentry flea and tick doesn’t work! I bought it because it was cheaper. My dog has more fleas now than before he was treated two weeks ago. I’ve had pets for 40 years now and never had this happen. Terrible!

    We bought the Sentry Pro XFT for dogs over 61 lbs and applied to my mix (Australian Shepherd-Lab) just before dropping for at a kennel for 3 days. Next morning we get an urgent call from the kennel that our dog would not stand, was shaking violently and vomiting. I immediately call our vet and was told to wash the area with Dawn dish soap. Our kennel did so immediately and then rushed her to a local vet hospital. Within an hour or so of washing off the application, our dog (lucky for us) came around and was soon back to her normal self. Please do not use this product. It should be pulled from the market. The vet at the hospital said that this type of pesticide can go straight to their brain and nervous system.

    Yesterday, I applied the SENTRY PurrScriptions med to my 12 yo cat; the poor thing is losing her hair!!! She can't stop scratching where I applied the med and she is going crazy! She's been hiding under the bed all day scratching. I was able to give her a bath with Dawn and I am hoping that I removed all the junk off of her and that she'll feel better soon. Why is this company allowed to sell this product? I bought it at PetSmart. I'm not shopping there again.

    I visited my local tractor supply and bought the cat flea three month supply of this product. A few days later my perfectly healthy one year old cat died. I even bought the pack that was recommended for cats 3-5 pounds and she was seven. This product didn't even kill the fleas, just my cat. Please for the love of God, DO NOT buy this product. Please do research before you put any flea medication on your cat. I cannot help, but to feel responsible for my cat's death. This product needs to be taken off the market.

    This product dog flea collars was a total waste of money. They have been on my dogs for 60 hours. I can still see fleas on both of the dogs. I don't see how you can sell a product and make all these claims and your products not work at all. I wish I had my money back!!! Will never purchase your products again and I will tell everyone I talk to about how they do not work.

    This product is horrible. Put the collar on my 75 lb mix breed dog and he is still itching from fleas and I pick ticks off of him daily. I even found a tick directly underneath the collar! This product is a complete waste of money, time and effort.

    DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. Within 30 minutes of application, my 50lb husky mix was clearly agitated and couldn't stop panting or pacing. I looked up reviews online and quickly found that this was a common occurrence. My dog's skin was red, his heart was racing, and he couldn't sit still for more than seconds at a time. Three baths with Dawn soap and 7 restless hours later, he's feeling a bit better but still biting at his back. I will never, ever use this again and hope that the product is removed soon. So many of these terrible reviews are masked by a decent star rating, and honestly, I have no idea how.

    While visiting my local TSC store I spoke with a sales rep about the Sentry flea and tick collars. Not much help. I decided to purchase a pkg of 2 large collars at $39.98 plus tax. We are not pleased with our purchase, upon opening the collars were very powdery. Once fastened to our dogs they continued to shift/coil. After almost 2 weeks both of our dogs continue to scratch for fleas and we have removed several ticks. I would not recommend this product and say go ahead and spend extra $$ on a better product. Would love my $$ back.

    Anyone have any idea how to find/decipher expiration code, if it even exists, on this product? Just a guess at this point - It's probably a masked number, so in the other number, 1056k11, the 105 is probably 105th day on Julian calendar, April 15th. The year? Not sure, guessing 2019 - call the folks at 800-224-7387. Make sure you tell them how idiotic this expiration posting method is, especially as it pertains to the well-being of your beloved pet. You don't see this see this type of encrypted expiration date on human consumption items, why for pets?

    I purchased the Sentry PurrScriptions Plus and in short, my precious furbaby is now gone. I so wish I would have read the reviews prior to purchase and my furbaby may still be here! I can't prove that's what it was, but that was the only thing different (and very coincidental) for my previously healthy 4 year old Siamese. This product NEEDS TO BE PULLED OFF THE SHELVES!!!!

    Bought the ointment for our two white shepherds and put in their neck and back as instructed. Problem is... it doesn’t work. After three weeks, our outside dogs are covered with ticks every day. Female sleeps on porch and everyday there are one or two fully engorged ticks that drop off her onto porch. Of course we have stepped on them by mistake and tracked into house. Both dogs regularly have ticks on their eyes and face. Pretty crappy product!!! Never buy again!

    I wish I could have reviewed this product in the store before purchase. I bought the indoor formula for 2 of our cats and another regular formula for our other cat. Within 30 mins. of applying the drops we had to bathe all three cats. They were drooling and acting very strange. My outdoor cat was scratching at the area and trying to hide. This is a horrible product and I am returning to the pet store today to attempt to get them to pull it from their shelves. I'm so glad I bought a different product for our dog so she wasn't harmed. Do not buy this product for your pets.

    I apply this to my dog on 5/3/19 and within 24 hours his skin was on fire and burning uncontrollably. He was whining and running through the house pacing and panting. His skin was bright red. I gave him three baths using Dawn dish detergent which still didn’t stop the burning. I placed aloe on the burn spots. I gave him something to help him sleep. At this point nothing is working. He is pacing uncontrollably! This is a HORRIBLE PRODUCT!!!! My dog is suffering!!!! NEVER BUY THIS!!!!

    This was our first time buying flea and tick meds from the store and not the vet, worst mistake I could have made! The next day after applying the topical treatment my 16 month old Blue Pit starting itching so badly that he is balding in spots! He won't play, go outside or even sleep. A very playful and energetic puppy is now depressed looking and has no motivation to do anything! Worst product, sad thing is I always look at reviews and this time because I didn't my baby is suffering! ZERO stars, apparently it's mandatory that I put at least one. This company should be ashamed!

    This product caused my cat 3 burns on her neck. If I knew this product was not accredited I would not have bought it. I was advised not to buy certain product from my vet so I steered clear of that product. I purchased Sentry dual collar from a respectable pet store. They need to pull this product out of store shelves. With all the complaints I wish I reviewed Sentry before putting the collar on my cat. I feel so bad for her; not knowing she was suffering.

    Well I always used a flea collar on my stray cat I adopted into my home. Gave him a bath and then put Sentry flea and tick product on him as preventative. I did it correctly but it just wouldnt dry. The next day still not dry and cat was was falling out. I washed off remaining product that was wet on his fur. Been over a week and scabs on neck, dry skin, and what looks like discoloration (yellow) of skin. It is as if it burned my baby. This cat did better outside than in my car. First time cat owner and feel bad for my Mischa. Will never again use any of these products. Hope one is more smart than me and reads reviews before using. Sorry for everyone's lose due to this chemical. God bless those innocent animals. This company should be banned.

    This product caused my cat's skin to turn red by the end of the first day. Within a day or two he was scratching and pulling out his hair. His face and ears were red. He stopped eating. I did my best to wash it off and gave him a small amount of ** that quieted the scratching. He has started eating small amounts again. He has hyperthyroidism so losing even a little weight is a big deal for him. I would never use this product again.

    I bought a three pack of Sentry Calming Collars and put one on a cat that I have that tends to be a little more nervous. I was hoping it would calm her. Within 3 to 4 days I noticed a gummy substance under her chin and neck. I took it off and bathed her and as horrified to see a 3 in bald spot on my cat's neck!!! It was oozing! It has dried up now but she is still bald there. I hope her fur grows back. I don't know what is in that collar but it definitely had a negative reaction with my baby! Thank God I noticed it and took it off.
