Has anyone put Frontline on the EB before? Ralph had a huge reaction being sick shaking uncontrollably, wouldn't recommend trying it anytime soon! he's fine now.

Oh my goodness!! Thank God he is ok now! Is this your first time using Frontline? How old is Ralph?

Many will not agree but I started Joey on Frontline as a young pup, she is now almost 5 years old and has NEVER had a problem. That's why I never stopped using it, because she has done fine on Frontline for several years, in fact this morning was her Frontline and Heartguard day.

Ralph is 1.5, it's not the first time, i remember him being a bit funny when we did it before, but this time he went really weird, to the point i was going to take him to the emergency vet. scary to see, but fully mended now thank you. the joys of owning a dog!

Jax started on Frontline with no issues but then I switched to Sentinel Spectrum chew tablet so both dogs are getting that.

Has Ralph had monthly Frontline treatments for his lifetime or did you recently switch over to Frontline?

In all Honesty he doesn't have fleas or ticks, i'm thinking the dose they gave him for his size might have played a part, won't be using it again.

After all the studies n proof on anything that has to do with fleas or ticks, you are all basically feeding your dogs/cats pesticides. I myself posted numerous times to stay away from them killers. It seeps into the body’s organs slowly but surely. :(

Consider the natural way which I use all the time when I go for hikes or walks in the Rockies. Rockies do have ticks as some mountain goats are found with ticks.... this is my go to for my pups n the bottom of my jeans n runners. Works!!

FOR TICKS

14 oz of Witch Hazel
12 drops of Lavender
15 drops of Citronella
15 drops of Lemongrass

Put all in a spray bottle and shake.

Castor tried Frontline once and was itchy (and his coat looked all weird where we had administered the stuff) and he also developed a bad nose rope rash after a few days. Many dogs here use Frontline (for ticks) without any issues, though, but we switched to Bravecto (which gave him an upset tummy) and now he is on Nexguard. We only give tick prevention once or possibly twice a year, though, so not on a continuous basis.

Does this recipe also work for fleas? Fortunately, where I am at, my elevation is high enough that we have very few fleas and ticks so I don't need to treat my dogs. However, I would like to give the ingredients to my husband and his LA pup

Yes works for all bugs/insects. I’ve been using it on Nyala for about 3 yrs now. I don’t use it everyday as we do have harsh winters here. No bugs anywhere. Lemongrass is one the bugs hates the smell. Here’s a great like that explains or if I do I will be flooding this page lolll

https://www.naturallivingideas.com/essential-oils-to-repel-bugs-pests/

BTW, now that I’ve been using tea tree on regular basis in the diffuser and it’s not affecting the dogs at all, I will be adding to the recipe at least 5 drops of it. Me..ME only till I see the results...

BUT...YES A BUT..YOU, Do not add it as this recipe is new to your puppy. Start with this recipe see how it goes. You don’t need to put a lot as it will last all day. Simply add it on your hands n just “pet” it on the coat. On the dog collar, add 1-2 drops of lavender only on top/outside of the collar. I’m telling you this as the link says tea tree is great for tick. So is my recipe. Again, if you have a cat in the house, you cannot use peppermint.
