    Default frontline allergy

    ive been having problems with annies skin for a few weeks now and have changed from kibble to raw feeding thinking it was food related,then she came into season had urine infection ,vet prescribed antibiotics and said her itching was due to hormonal changes,i have been soothing annies itching with dermacton and all was well with very little itching,yesterday i applied her regular frontline and what a severe reaction she has had ,within 10 hours she was bloodied and scabby with puss ,went to the vets and he said that its a severe reaction to frontline,i could kick myself ,she doesnt even have fleas!!!,but as its summer her i thought id better cover her,i will never use frontline again ,i will just give her garlic ,i will get her some milk thistle to cleanse her liver and try and get the pestacides out of her system,talk about a worry lol,karen

    I dont know if any of you do this but when summer comes around i get a small tub of liver and place garlic powder all over it. Then i proceed to to cook it low and slow till its like jerky. I then slice it into small strips and give it to my babies as a treat. Too much garlic is bad for them but this way they get some along with the liver and they thoroughly enjoy it.

    Awww poor baby! I hope she feels better soon! I give Brutus Benedryl for reactions and it works great. We tried these new bath wipes and it made him puff up and turn all red. After about 15 min you could tell the Benedryl kicked in and it all went down

    thanks,the vet reported the frontline as its a condition here when there is a reaction,vet gave her antihistamines and antibiotics,ive just come in from work and bathed her though she is quite poorly at the moment,her undercarriage is burning up so have put plenty of dermacton on her,i almost didnt buy the frontline as i hate putting chemicals on her but with having a cat i thought id better just in case,i will never use it again ,im using garlic and herbs from now on ,after what ive read about it its very scary ,i should have done my homework first like i usually do ,now my poor dog is suffering for my ignorance ,but when vets recomend things you tend to believe them thank goodness i have a bulldog friendly vet,karen

    Oh Karen don't beat yourself up about it, the stores and the vets sell it so it leads the consumer to believe it is safe. You were trying to protect her.... Don't feel like it's all your fault. (hug)

    its hard not to but i know these things happen,i honestly thought that she had allergy to kibble thats why i switched her to raw,then vet thought hormonal but all along it seems like the frontline toxicity has been building up,ive read that a lot of dogs have developed epilepsy,neuro problems and endless amounts of allergy due to frontline ,i think everyone should be made aware of the possible side effects before considering pesticides which when you think about it thats exactly what frontline is,karen

    I too have cats @karenben one house nad one really good mouser, as he likes to show mummy often with little presents left on the step
    anyhooo I decided to treat the outdoor cat and not Lucy or Bailey in the hope that it will work (fingers crossed) I know also that Avon's skin so soft is a flee deterent
    maybe do a small test patch first to see if she reacts..... I've ordered some cos I like to use it myself
