Budget Pet Care, Canada — I believed a myth… that ordering from a Canadian company would be safer for my pet than ordering flea treatment from an online company in the United States. Not. Ended up with a product that is not even EPA approved or what I ordered. And the the flea product box was not sealed. Seriously BudgetPetCare.com ?
Worse, I understand the flea product from this company is making pets sick. Look a the Budget Pet Care reviews on the sites I have linked below and in my images. Just like some flea treatment products that are purchased from infamous yet popular department stores in the United States.
Flea products scares me anyway. I would rather use an alternative flea treatment product called Flea Treats but the fleas this year are undeterred. I trusted the product brand I received, have used it before but from our vet. Needed to save some money since all our disposable income-plus has gone to my alternative cancer treatments in the last year. Thought I would with Budget Pet Care. Wrong. I spent more and could have harmed my beloved pet, as has happened to too many others.
No, it’s not about the brand and the one they switch to that is (allegedly, supposedly, perhaps) from the U.K. It is about what is BudgetPetCare doing while claiming they are using flea product from that brand they say they are sending to consumers.
Budget Pet Care and Customer Trust
Their reviews are bad, really bad. Wish I looked prior to ordering.
After receiving my package, am glad I mistrusted Budget Pet Care enough to check this out. All the warning signs are there for me today are I open the package. Read this….
I ordered a 3 month supply of Fr ontli ne Plus, or so I thought. I received Fron tlin e Combo stating this was a replacement for the Fro ntlin e Pl us. This was from a Canadian company, Budget Pet Care. The substitute product is made in the UK and they had to send it due to a manufacturer’s shortage. The company made no attempt to solicit my approval for the substitution prior to their shipment. They are willing to let me return the product to Huntsville, Missouri (really?). But since I am not happy with the product, they insist I still pay for their shipping of it to me, so they will be deducting $5.00 for the original shipping charges. For a product I did not order.
I quote another comment….. and I don’t mean the dog.
BEWARE! IF THEIR SUBSTITUTION PRACTICE IS UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY!
BudgetPetCare.com – what they did to my order…
There is no way I am placing this on my pet. I do not trust them. The color of product is not same as my Fr ontlin e, don’t know about the Plus. THE BOX WAS NOT SEALED! The one for large dogs was not sealed. Not even sealed. The three ‘pipettes’ or vials for small dogs were not even in a box but you notice in image that it does come in three applications in a sealed box. So why not mine?
Also took BudgetPetCare.com THREE days to even ship product then emailed that it would be here in 10 – 14 business days, if it did not arrive, email back and they would refund my money. Now that is an idea……. hhhmmmmm
But I am an honest person. So to Budget Pet Care ‘s United States warehouse? in Missouri it goes. The $5, I don’t care, will not fight them for $5. I will spend my time instead in posting this review on every site I can and then on my Womens-Fiction Blog. I am committed to make the point of how reprehensible their substitution and flea product switch is.
I purchased Canadian because I was afraid to trust online companies from the United States. I am disillusioned about Canada now, I trusted this purchase. The Budget Pet Care, Canada company fits my criteria for being shady.
I’m ticked, BudgetPetCare.com .
The small dog box we needed so we had the full weight of our dog in combination with the large dog box. Note that we did receive Fron tl ine Plus. But see on this box, top right corner, the application vials come in the box that is sealed – three – 3 – to a box. Ours were not in a box. We received singles. See here…..
UPDATE January 16, 2013…. eventually we did receive a refund less the cost for shipping it to us. Gotta love anyway.
Essa Adams is a storyteller. But this review is no lie. And she is a green entrepreneur. But the last thing desired was to use a flea treatment at all. Except sometimes fleas are undeterred. This company sent an unsealed, non-EPA approved flea treatment product with a consumer switch and bait that cannot be trusted.
