Navigation Avoiding Counterfeit Pet Medications
Well-known pet medicine products, such as the Advantage® line of topical flea control products, are often copied and reproduced by illegitimate companies and then passed off as being authentic Advantage products. Pet owners should be aware of this if they sometimes purchase pet meds from unusual or suspect sources.

Why should you care if your Advantage is authentic?

In some cases, counterfeit products may not have the proper packaging or instructional leaflet to ensure proper usage. In addition, you cannot be assured that the dosage is correct for the animal pictured on the retail carton.


How can you determine if your product is authentic?

First, if you purchased your Advantage from a veterinarian, you should feel reasonably assured about the authenticity of the product.

Second, according to the EPA, counterfeit packaging may be difficult to distinguish from legitimate product packaging. To determine if the product you have purchased is legitimate, check to see if it meets the following criteria. If the product fails any one of these criteria, it most likely is an illegitimate product and should be disposed of properly.


  1. The only way to determine a legitimate Advantage product from a counterfeit product is by examining the actual applicator tubes that are inside the carton. Since the directions for use on the retail carton (outer box) and instruction leaflet of the legitimate product and the counterfeit product are identical, check the language that is printed on the applicator tubes. The legitimate Advantage products all contain applicator tubes that are printed in English. The most obvious sign of a counterfeit product is that the applicator tubes are printed in a foreign language (most likely German or French).

  2. The legitimate applicator tubes include EPA Registration Number, the signal word WARNING, and the child hazard warning (Keep Out of Reach of Children). Counterfeit applicator tubes may lack this information.

  3. Legitimate applicator tubes will also include a reference statement that refers users to the main labeling for directions for use and will include the manufacturing company’s name (Bayer). Counterfeit applicator tubes may lack this information.

  4. Legitimate applicator tubes will contain an active ingredient statement that agrees with the active ingredient statement on the retail carton (9.1% imidacloprid). A counterfeit product may have an active ingredient statement that differs (such as 10%).
