the fleas will die abt 24-48 hrs after they suck the dog's blood if u apply frontline. Since u juz applied ytd, why not u see if it takes effect? If it's not that many, can pull out the fleas.

Dont worry. Frontline is by far the best anti ticks treatment for dogs in my opinion.

I quote from their website..

"Fipronil, the active ingredient in all FRONTLINE Brand Products, is stored under your pet's skin in their oil glands. Because of this, FRONTLINE doesn't rinse off, even with repeated bathing. In fact, FRONTLINE doesn't stop working for an entire month or more, giving your dog or cat superior protection from fleas and ticks"

You are DEFINITELY not poisoning unless you feed him orally..which I HOPE you didnt. Applying on the back of the neck ensures that the dog cant reach and lick the medication.

No worries.. Hope you manage to get rid of the fleas and ticks.

it should be effective, sice ears oso got blood circulating there.

Some say that garlic repel ticks also. Maybe after this episode, you can feed your dog fresh garlic regularly, 1 clove every 2-3 days or so, depending on the size of your dog. Works pretty well for mine so far.
