Pros:Cheaper and accessible, non toxic.
Cons:Too soon to tell.
The Bottom Line: Try it! Maybe it doesn't have irreversible neurological side effects, like Frontline sometimes does. I doubt any neg. side effects Nature's Guardian might have, could be worse than Frontline.

After reading many reviews about the strong odor of this product. I thought I would respond by posting:
There is a NEW FORMULA and the odor is NOT OFFENSIVE at all! It comes for cats and dogs, seperate packages of course.
The ingrediant proportions have changed, they are now:
10% peppermint oil
7% clove oil
3% lemon grass oil
80% canold oil, vanillin, citric acid
Now, I'm watching for side effects and effectiveness. I don't mind having to reapply in 2 wks. I bought this product because after faithfully using Frontline on my two Rottweiler-mix dogs, (who've I've had since they were 3 months old and now they are 13.5 years old) we have been noticing tremors (resembles Parkinson's) in their back legs when they stand or lay down. This is one of the neurological side effects to using Frontline and like chemicals. I don't want to ever use these again knowing they may have, over the life of our dogs, caused this. There must be something w/o these side effects. Note** We did not see these tremors until they reached around age 11. In other words, a cumulative effect of the product on their nervous system.
Some of the above ingrediants are recommended in a book called "The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy" by Valerie Ann Worwood. This is a great reference book!
