I have used Fronline Plus on and off for many years for multiple pets.It used to work pretty well but lately it doesn't seem to work well at all.

I used it on one of my dogs two days ago and today she has a horrible area that is chemically burned. I can't believe that this happened. It looks so bad and I'm sure my dog is miserable. I am going to take her to the vet tomorrow for treatment.

I will never purchase again.This has been the most horrible experience that I have ever had with any pet meds.

Reason of review: chemical burn on my dog. had to take her to the vet for exam..

Monetary Loss: $120.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.

Had an Experience with Merial?

Hi Beetlejuice Bigglesworth in Houston,

Trust me friend, I applied it correctly!I would never put any of my pets (or any pets for that matter) at risk of something happening to them because I didn't follow the instructions.

Like I mentioned before, I have used this brand as well as a few others on many pets over many years. This is just a post of what happened when I applied this one dose. I'm not sure why it is only in one area and why it didn't happen along the entire spine. Just FYI, vet didn't say it was because it was applied incorrectly.

I did this post to let others know what happened and to be careful that there is a possibility that another pet could have the same reaction.

Thanks for your concern in this matter.

I hope this answered your question.If not, sorry you don't understand!!

Why is the burn on the head? The instructions say to start between the shoulder blades.

It looks like you applied all of it in one area rather than down the spine to the tail as instructed.

On my Frontline Plus it now says put entire tube between shoulder blades. maybe it is a counterfeit product. I know it used to be in spots down the back to the tail.

Hi Barb,

Yes, the box I had said between the shoulder blades.I have used other products that say to apply down the spine though.

In this particular case, it was applied as per instructions on the box. I've used this product on this same dog in the past with no problems. That is why I purchased it again.

This time though, this is what happened.Just wanted to caution everyone on this.

Frontline does not work for fleas. Fleas have naturally built an immunity to the product. I've had to spray many homes for fleas because the owners used frontline.

What did the vet do for the burn?My yellow lab has a burn too from Frontline Plus and literally screams if you come near it.

It's breaking my heart!Oh, and he still has fleas!
