Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Good news!

Most dogs will tolerate feline flea products just fine since they are lower dosed then dog ones. As well, the chemical in Frontline is the same for dogs and cats. So, as long as Tambo is a similar size to the cat, we'd not be worried. Though if did just apply this and Tambo is much smaller then the cat, you could consider washing it off the skin/coat with cool water and dish soap (as this breaks down the oils) to remove as much as possible for her.

Please take care,

Dr. B.

Hi again,

You are very welcome and if she is a bit bigger, then that is no worry at all. Just plan to skip her dose for at least 2 weeks, since the cat one will counter fleas for her.

Have a lovely day,

Dr. B.
