Comment From Reader - 5 Apr 2008

Hello!

I was wondering what you feel about on-line auctions including Frontline Plus for Dogs being sold for use on CATS.

I have found some auctions selling a SINGLE PIPETTE of Frontline Plus for dogs and instructing buyers to divide the pipette into EIGHT doses for cats. Included in the auction w/the pipette is a vial and a syringe. And, from what I am lead to believe, some sellers are NOT including the manufacturer's box or the instructions from inside the box. One seller even has the audacity to sell serum-filled syringes of what is said to be Frontline! Another seller, in response to my inquiry, emailed me HIS list of instructions which included the statement "ok for pregnant cats." I have spoken with some in the veterinary field and was told that in NO way is DOG FRONTLINE PLUS safe for pregnant cats.

I hope you are as outraged as I am. If so--could you direct me to someone who could help stop this potentially deadly practice? ANY assistance/guidance you could give me would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,
Terry Sue Smail

Dear Terry Sue:

Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. We did not know that this was happening. But, as the article suggest, this doesn't seem to be a reliable source.

First of all, we would suggest that you contact your local vet, and ask him or her if this is legal. We would also suggest that you take a look at www.avar.org and email then with your questions and concerns, as they have much more experience in this area than we do.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
