    I gave Kitty a frontline pipette about 2 weeks ago but as she's long haired and has a thick undercoat and moved at the wrong point, some of the liquid rolled off her fur but I did get some on her skin.

    She's still riddled with fleas. Would I be able to give her another dose of frontline this week without harming her at all?

    My carpet and furniture are about to get a spraying with Acclaim as well this week.

    She's actually 14 years old! lol sorry if I gave the impression she was young, her name is Kitty which makes her sound like a kitten.

    I have repeated after 3 weeks if heavy loaded with fleas. I know theres been issues with the effectiveness of the frontline some think the fleas are becoming emune to the stuff. I may actually try a new one my self this time. Although ive always used frontline my self.

    We renewed our frontline after 3 weeks, but it doesn't seem to work any more. We've since moved to advantage with better results :)
