* note revolution only did studies on the one type of tick, therefore they only say it kills that one type, some users noticed it does the same for other types of ticks but it wasn't tested on other types therefore it can only say what i have written above... also advantix may repel mosquitos..*

some vets will use the frontline plus on dog's/puppies under 10 pounds. and i THINK meral even changed the weight on the package to 1-22 pounds..... always check with your veterinarian which they think would suit you and your pet best.

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.
