Interesting article from last year on some problems pet owners have had with these pesticides.
"The year long investigation, conducted by a team of veterinarians assembled by the federal agency, concluded that certain pets – small dogs between 10 and 20 pounds – are most susceptible to the problems, which include rashes, vomiting, diarrhea and seizures."
We have been using Frontline successfully now for a couple years. With all the walking in the hills that we do, I pull ticks off of Chloe and Bailey quite often. I actually pull them off myself after many walks. I wonder if they make Frontline for humans?
The report tends to show that smaller dogs (under 20 pounds) are affected with negative reactions.
A long-time dog owner / breeder of Vizslas suggested that with Vizslas, not to use on pups until they are over 6 months old.

Actually, I don't like to give advice, but just hopefully pass good information on.
