Isn’t small doses of frontline plus for 5-22lb dogs a bit of a weight difference? I always fret when it is time to dose, though I buy product for big dogs and use syringe. We have 7 dogs of all weights. I had a dog that had a seizure from this. A mild one, but scared me. This year in Missouri the fleas came out and we had a hard time getting under contro, we just never had problems before this yearl. Finally Advantage spray, after trying a couple natural ones, gave dogs relief. Treating carpets and such also is a must. Our only worry in past years were ticks, but this year fleas were maddening. Time to apply FL plus again and fretting about using Advantage and FL together. Really would love advice on this please. If I have to choose one it would be the Spray cause fleas abandon ship when they get this sprayed on the dogs. Have to do once a week or so but dogs were suffering so badly.

NOTE: If you’re using Frontline Plus —
The amount of fipronil in the dog version is the same as in the cat version. The “Plus” is methoprene, an insect growth regulator. There’s LESS of it in the dog product than in the cat product, so it’s safe to use the dog product on the cats but do NOT use the cat product on a small dog.Includes a box of three 4.02ml tubes of Frontline Plus for Extra Large Dogs 89-132 lbs which you divide up into smaller doses for your dog 0-22 lbs. Includes storage bottle, dosing syringe (no needle) and complete instructions.

IN RECENT MONTHS THERE SEEMS TO BE AN ONSLAUGHT OF SELLERS' SHOWING PICTURES OF FRONTLINE PLUS BOXES AND IN THE CORNER OF THESE BOXES IS A TINY BOTTLE , SYRINGE AND TUBE OF FRONTLINE PLUS. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN IN REALITY. BEFORE WE GET STARTED LET ME QUALIFY MYSELF AS ONE WHO HAS EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE WITH THE SUBJECT MATTER TO BE DISCUSSED BELOW. I HAVE PURCHASED SEVERAL OF THESE "KITS" AND HAVE GONE TO GREAT LENGTHS TO THE CLAIMS MADE IN THE LISTINGS TO THE TEST. BY REGULAR PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF. THE FIRST CLAIM IS THAT THESE KITS PROVIDE FOR 6 FULL DOSES FOR SMALL DOGS OR 8 FULL DOSES FOR CATS. tHE SYRINGE AND INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED INSTRUCT THE BUYER TO EMPTY THE CONTENTS OF THE LARGE DOG PIPETTE INTO THE STORAGE VIAL AND THEN, USING THE PROVIDED SYRINGE, DRAW 0.5 CC'S FOR CATS OR .67 CC'S FOR SMALL DOGS INTO THE SYRINGE. ONCE YOU HAVE THE SYRINGE AT THE .50 OR .67 MARK YOU REMOVE THE SYRINGE AND TREAT YOUR PET WITH THE MEDS. YOU DO THIS EACH MONTH AND WHEN YOU GET TO THE 6 TH MONTH FOR SMALL DOGS AND THE 7TH MONTH FOR THE CAT KITS YOU SUDDENLY FIND OUT THERE ISN'T ENOUGH LEFT. WHY? YOU ASK YOURSELF! YOU WERE VERY CAREFUL EACH MONTH TO MEASURE THE DOSE CORRECTLY AS INDICATED IN THE INSTRUCTIONS. THEN WHAT HAPPENED? WHY DID I RUN OUT OF PRODUCT? WE WILL ANSWER THIS QUESTION LATER!
