gringohombre Posted February 18, 2022 Report Share Posted February 18, 2022 I have had dogs for years and of course faced this problem before. Always used the Frontline brand and thought that it was overpriced. Long story, recently lost El Duke who went to dog heaven because of old age. My maids had rescued a young one and found her very active (understatement) and since there was a baby in the house offered her to me. I immediately accepted and she has been a blessing and I immediately named her Kuka, and shortly after upgraded that to Kuka Loca for obvious reasons. She is out in my large yard running and rolling around and when I bring her in at night is scratching and biting herself, and obviously has the pulgas. I applied the Frontline but she resisted the application because felt the sharpness of the devise on her back. I then talked to the vet on the Libremiento in the mall behind the gas station and she recommended a pill named Simparica (80 mg.) priced at $195 and good for 5 weeks. My question...are there any negative effects to a pill versus a topical application? Just a little nervous and will see how it works. Chiquita Banana, my other rescue dog (maybe 5 years old) does not seem to have this problem...strange...Gracias Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
