Adverse reactions reported from the spot-on products range from mild effects such as skin irritation to more serious effects such as seizures and in some cases death. Over 44,000 potential incidents associated with registered spot-on products were reported to EPA in 2008.

This is rather important for the fact Frontline Plus is on the report. The only one I ever hear being used on greys from that list.


so will Advatage or Advantix replace Frontline effectively?

Advantage is a fleas-only med. Lots of folks who have no tick problems use it on greys already.


Gah. Hoping I don't have to stockpile Frontline. Have never had a whisker of a problem with it.
