Yes, the weight was changed to 1-22 pounds on Frontline Plus because S-methoprene wasn't tested on enough toy-breeds before their product initially came out. After a year, they finally did enough tests and the label changed to 1-22. I also didn't know until recently since our hospital has only been recieving the 10-22 packages, and we don't sell a lot of it.

My vet swears by Frontline. I not only use it on the dogs and cats but I have had to use it on one of my snakes that had gotten mites at the pet store he was purchased from.
