We had a bit of a scare with Pippi a few weeks ago and I wanted to share the learned lesson. We use Frontline to protect her from those nastily little critters. I have always been happy with the results and use every 30 days as instructed. Well Frontline is not infallible and it also not as toxic as I thought. After a hike we found that Pippi had a tick problem, WHAT!!! We use Frontline!! Well we were at the very end of the cycle and it was at its weak point when the ticks were at their strongest. A frantic call to the vet later and we learned that you can apply Frontline early with not harm to your pooch. If you know you are going to be in a tick area you can apply early and prevent issues.
I am thrilled with Frontline and to know that I have this extra option to treat Pippi.
