Information on Frontline Flea Products:
This page provides a number of reviews for products by one of the major flea control manufacturers - Frontline. Frontline makes a number of flea control items, and you definitely should take a look because they have a strong reputation and are pretty popular in the flea control market. They'll give you a number of options for getting rid of fleas, and this page takes a look at them.
Frontline makes things to kill both fleas and ticks, so if your pet has any sort of blood-sucking parasite you should be able to find something from them to take care of it. They make pretty much anything you can think of - sprays, drops, general flea medication, and other various flea control products. The Frontline brands are generally very effective. You will need to check up to figure out exactly what product you'll want to buy - talking to your vet is a good idea, and will give you more details about what to do. You can also browse around the site to find specific Frontline flea product reviews. One thing you should be aware of is that the company that makes it recommends that you always talk to your vet before using any flea control product - in fact, they won't sell it to you directly without proof that you've done so (although you can get it other places on the Internet without that proof). It's good advice, and I would at least give them a call before your decision. Safe is always better than sorry.
Dosing Information: As with any flea control product, you need to weigh your pet first to figure out which version of Frontline to buy, because they are sold according to pet weight. The categories for dogs are: under 22 pounds, 23-44 pounds, 45-88 pounds, and 89-132 pounds. For cats, there isn't much weight variation and so there is only one product version for you to worry about.
