I noticed that my little terrier gets red skin at the application site and then itches other areas until they are red and sore. Anyone else have experience like this. Barnsley also started itching under his front leg and it looks reddened but he doesn't have redness at the application site so I am thinking it was a coincidence. Lilly has sensitive skin and I am wondering if the frontline hasn't been a culprit in the past. I recently clipped her so it was more evident. Before I may have been missing this but she did seem to be scratching more around the time of application. ???
I only gave my 2 this only about 1/2 hr ago. I have a Pug as well as my Lab & it's very easy to confuse the large & the medium because they're exactly the same when they're out of the packet. The only way to tell is to read the fine print. The medium dose is 1.34ml & the large is 2.68ml.
My point is: Is it possible you gave your terrier the Lab dose?. I nearly did. :-[

My dose vials are noticeably different in size to my eyes, also I am a triple checker of things so I always be careful to check. It was a good thing to consider though.
I have heard of dogs having reactions to the Plus. Next time try the regular Frontline.

Jake used frontline plus with no problem up until he was a year old. I put it on like usual last July and within two days he had a huge bloody sore where I applied the stuff and hot spots all over his body. He got a raging ear infection and his skin was red/inflammed all over. It took about three months for his skin to look completely back to normal (hair regrown, etc.) and then I tried again. That night I noticed some pustules at the application site - I nearly shampooed his skin off his body, poor dog, and haven't used the stuff since.
No fleas here and I check for ticks daily. If you contact Merial they should refund your money for the product (and it helps other dog owners as well, since Merial is keen on believing frontline has extremely few adverse reactions).

I was going to suggest you let the manufacturer know too. I would also use a different product from now on with a different active ingredient.Originally Posted by yellojakesmom
Won't someone please feed me!
Does anyone have a recommendation of another effective treatment that may not cause a reaction?
