How long ago did Chloe ingest the Frontline?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Expert:  brisadog replied 10 months ago.
OK. There should not be any serious problems due to the ingestion. We can see increased salivation (from the foul taste) and some vomiting from stomach irritation.
Expert:  brisadog replied 10 months ago.
For now, I would monitor for signs of GI upset. If you do see any vomiting, withhold food for 12 hours, then feed a bland diet of boiled white rice and boiled chicken.

Then, transition back to her regular food over several days time.
