Clearly, we all care about our pets, and we should minimize the use of chemicals. Specifically we need to be certain not to overdose with Frontline Plus. Our dog is 8 pounds, so we got the 0-22 pound dose (the most exorbitantly priced). We should probably use only half of the smallest dose. An interesting note from Merial’s literature regarding Frontline Spot On: “No adverse effects were observed in target animal safety studies in 8 week old puppies, growing dogs and dogs weighing about 2kg treated once at five times the recommended dose.”
My husband and I treated our 6 1/2 month old Yorkie with Frontline Plus. Less than three hours later she could not stand, walk or hold her head up. She was sick to her stomach and was foaming at the mouth. Her gums turned white. I rushed her to the 24 Pet ER as our vet was closed and not in town. Two days later she is now home after being in the hospital 48 hours. She is still weak but showing progress. The 24 vet hospital did not understand what casued this and doubted it was from the Frontline. I disagree and feel it had everything to do with Frontline Plus. We took her to our dog to her vet Monday and she told us NEVER to use it on her again. It’s five days later and she is doing better but still is unstable when she walks and her head bobs and shakes. The only thing we did different Saturday was Frontline. I won’t be using this product again and encourage all dog owners to follow their gut feeling and not use the full dose especially on small dogs. I won’t be using Frontline anymore. My Vet did say the reaction my dog had was very, very rare so take that into consideration too if you have a small dog who was given Frontline Plus.
