Good info but the weights should be there too as Frontline Plus is not recommended for under 22 lbs, I use it for Kemo but half strength, still ya wonder why the manuf has that there. I get nervous with stuff like that. I had used it on Kemo before I was aware and since he had no reaction I just kept up with it.

i talked to the a dr. at merial (sp?) and she said it was fine for 0-22, i use it on chiwi and she is now 1.9, my vet's don't have a problem with me using it on her. although i may have to switch to revolution cause she refuses her heartguard. *sigh* that means i have to say goodbye to free frontline and heartguard! i'm always going through it to learn about everything.

**note we have guest speakers from different companies come talk to us at our hospital meetings i get to talk to employees and dr.'s of some pretty big companies. i don't recommend not listening to what your vet says i am just sharing my experiences and knowledge that i get from scientists, manufacturer representatives and dr.'s**

Great info...thanks!!! :D Seiah is on Revolution, but I don't think I put it on right. He kept moving and so I think some got in his hair instead. Is that okay, and would the vet do it for me next time so I know it's being done right?

you could ask the vet or one of the techs to show you. i think with my own experiences that as long as it gets on them. three out of 5 of my shih tzu mixes are nasty when it comes to doing anything to them besides petting them and they will run, jump up thrash around when putting it on them, it's like it was acid with how they act!!! we've never had a problem with the product failing because of "incorrect" application.
