Q: Overdose of flea control?
I have a 6-1/2 pound Yorkie. I use Advantage flea control for dogs weighing 5-10 pounds. Last year I applied the whole tube. (I thought it would be ok because the label reads 5 to 10 #) He vomited for 4 days. Now I squeeze all of the tube into a syringe so I can read how much I am using on him. This seems to work out just fine by using 1/2 the amount. Which, in turn, makes the single tube a 2 month supply! Just thought I would make you all aware of this issue. I assume that's what happened. Is it possible?

My best friend had a Chihuahua and she couldn't use the Advantage on her. Since she had other dogs (German Shepards), she just put the Advantage on them and the little dog got her dose that way because she was around them. Her dog would literally go nuts as it somehow affected her that way.
