Customer Question

I gave our dog too, large a dose of frontline plus. I discovered my error after 2.5 hrs. and washed it off. He's still miserable with fleas. How can I help him now without making him ill?

Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today.
You can add another products called Capstar pills; you give it once a day every other day for 2 weeks. Repeat the Frontline in 2 weeks. You also need to treat the home for the larva and eggs in the environment. For the home I like using a product called "fleabusters" that you can buy in; this will kill the larva and eggs yet being safe for your pets and family.
