Question from Darla Clark


Unknown All Black, Fluffy, age 5

My cat has a really bad reaction to Frontline. For a couple hours after a dose he will lay in the dark and breathe very rapid and heavy. I switched to Advantage and now he has hair loss, but no apparent irritation. What can I do?
Our Vet Says:

If you apply the whole product in the same place, it is possible for hair loss. One of the side effects is hair loss but is not very often. Try to apply the product in different places down his back. If the problems do not get better, then change the product. Another option of a topical product is Revolution or Advantage Multi, both are prescription products. If you don’t have very bad problems with fleas I recommend using Capstar. See some information for the product below:
Capstar can be used any time as and when you see fleas on your pet but no more than one treatment per day.

Capstar is indicated for the treatment of fleas on dogs and cats.

Dosage and administration

Capstar tablets are administered orally at a minimum recommended dose of 1mg/2.2lbs

Capstar tablets should be given orally, either directly into the mouth or mixed into a small portion of food and given immediately. Administer on any day when fleas are seen on the animal. No more than one treatment should be given per day.



Special precautions for use

Do not use on animals less than 4 weeks old or weighing less than 2.2lbs 

Further information

Effects on fleas may be seen as soon as 15 minutes after administration. Between 95% and 100% efficiency is observed within the first 6 hours and 100% efficiency is reached within 24 hours.

To help prevent re-infestation, the additional use of a suitable treatment to control immature stages of the flea life cycle in the environment is recommended.

Nitenpyram is neither embryotoxic nor teratogenic. It can be given to animals at all stages of pregnancy or lactation.

My dog has an itching problem. I use medicated shampoo with no results. I think she has dry skin and no lesions. I can use 1% hydrocortisone spray for temporary relief. I give her fish oil caps occasionally. Any suggestions?...??
