Just a questions about advantage when using little dogs. Even though its too late, because I put it on her.
Is it 100% safe for her?? I mean, of course its good for fleas, but what if somehow she gets it on one of her back paws when scratching, and then licks her paws??? Wouldn't she get Ill?? I am always so scared about things like this when it comes to my pets...I DO watch her all the time (she still only 2 pounds), But I cant watch her when she is in her crate sleepiing. I am just kinda worried now that I let my mind wander. Now I am just hoping that I can get some reassurance! :roll:

Cherie---In the future I would only use 1/2tube of the Advantage. I have used it on my Chi's, it is a good product. I only use it in the summer tho.
I use a the full amount on my two males, they way 6lbs. I only use half the amount on Chloe(3lbs).

It is for fle control... sandra

The only problem with Advantage is that it has an alcohol content (for quick drying) and that tends to make dogs/cats nauseas and cause significant drooling. Other than that it shouldn't pose any serious health problems for incidental exposure. One thing you can do if you are worried, is to apply it right before your chi goes to sleep, or apply it, and then use a hair dryer on "cool" to dry the product quickly.
