Now these idiots have something called Frontline spray. When I had my kittens neutered, this stupid place put this nasty awful stuff Frontline spray on my cat. First off, it got all over my clothes, car, etc... it was terrible. Worse, my cat has not been happy and has been more aggressive. I was really upset. I should have had him taken to get a bath but didn't do that. This stuff stays on for one month - so you dowse an animal in this toxin and it stays on their body and skin. That is such a terrible thing to do to an animal. Do NOT use these products. They are not safe for your pets... Don't be one of the mindless idiots out there who does this.

When applied externally, Frontline is only minimally absorbed into your pet's body so toxicity or poisoning after normal application is unlikely. The compound is more selective for the nervous receptors of insects than those of mammals.As a powerful topical medication that kills both ticks and fleas as well as their larvae, products are also toxic to humans and pets if internally digested. Therefore, under no circumstances should pet owners administer Frontline products on the pet's tongue, and they should also watch for compulsive licking within 48 hours after application. Furthermore, the main ingredient in Frontline is an insecticide known as Fipronil, and although it is highly effective as it destroys the pests' nervous systems, it is even more toxic to humans and could be dangerous to pets if owners do not administer the dosage correctly.In order to ensure healthy, happy dogs and cats in the house, pet owners need to let their run around in the fresh air every once in a while, roll around in some dirt, and just be themselves in a more natural habitat. However, especially in the summer and year-round in warmer climates, ticks and fleas can plague both pets and pet owners, often carrying dangerous diseases that can adversely affect the health of the pets. In this fight against fleas and ticks, is a powerful medication that helps to prevent flea and tick infestations. Since the active ingredients found in the Frontline medication can be toxic to animals, pet owners must learn how to safely apply both and to their pets.She will not eat, even her favorites, since 48 hours after putting Frontline on her. No wonder the EPA has been researching taking it off the market. I knew better. But tick-borne diseases are even worse --I thought. I might have to give her a puppy cut so that I can put diatomaceous earth on her and "natural" essential oil based flea & tick sprays on her and actually be able to get them both into her skin. Can't do that now; she has a thick double coat. I hope she lives so that I can do this. Don't risk your pet's life using this toxic chemical.Frontline Plus for Dogs Directions
Frontline Plus is for use on puppies of 8 weeks or older. It is to be administered once monthly; dosage size is according to your pet's weight and is specified on the packaging of the product.
To apply a single dose, open the applicator by holding it upright and snapping the tip away from your face and body; then, part the hair between the dog's shoulder blades, place the tip of the applicator on the exposed skin and squeeze to apply the entire contents of the tube (taking care not to apply merely superficially, to the dog's hair as opposed to the skin). Fleas, ticks, and mites are biting insects that live off the blood of mammals, reptiles, and other animals. Fleas generally live in bedding, carpets, upholstered furniture, grass, and weeds while waiting for a host to walk by. Ticks prefer to wait on tall grass and shrubbery, waiting for a warm-blooded victim to brush by, and then they can hitch a ride and feed on the blood. Mites are tiny bloodsucking pests found in pets' ears. Easily passed from animal to animal, owners usually notice the infestation when the pet shakes its head and scratches at its ears. Frontline products both repel these opportunistic pests and kill the fleas, ticks, and mites already on the pet.
