I am sorry to hear you are worried about Alice. I am a veterinarian and will do my vest to help.
How long ago did you apply the Frontline? Some dogs do react to the carrier (not the active ingredient, according to the studies I have read) by getting itchy and losing hair at the site of application. Bathing her to remove the Frontline should help.
You can also give her Benadryl for the itching, 50 mg 2 to 3 times daily.
Let me know what else I can help with.
