Is it ok to give my Chihuahua Endectrid? She mated on the 22nd and the 24th and has come home with fleas!Please advise,Kind regards,Wayne

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

In regards ***** ***** question, Endectrid hasn't been studied to determine if it is safe for pregnant animals. Therefore, to be safe, you would be better using Frontline Plus or Frontline spray if she is pregnant. Otherwise, flea combing (dipping the fleas into dish soap to kill them) along with treating your house would be the safest options until you purchase Frontline (from your vet, pet store or even grocery store chemist).

All the best,

Dr. B.
