I have two inside cats and Holly Belle. I have read the ingredients for both Frontline Plus Dogs and Frontline Plus Cats. Seems strange to me that the second ingredient for both, (S) Methoprene is included in a higher percentage for cats than dogs. This ingredient is the growth inhibitor to prevent eggs/larvae from growing into adult fleas. It is 11.8% in the cat product, 8.8% in the dog product. Anyone have info on the difference? I would like to purchase one product at a time and use it on all three pets. Holly Belle is around 10 lbs. now so she should need the same dosage as either of my cats. Or, with a lower dose of (S) Methoprene in the dog product, I should be able to use that on my cats... Is this just a ploy to get us to purchase more product than we need???

Frontline plus shouldn’t be applied to kittens that are under 8 weeksof age. Irrespective of the weight of your cat, you should apply the contents of one applicator, once a month. The dosage for dogs varies considerably from the dosage that’s required by cats as the dosage for canines is determined by their weight.
What are the exact dosages for frontline plus dogs for cats
A question about whether the dosage rule of .5 cc applies to Frontline or Frontline Plus: I know for sure that it applies to Frontline Plus. As Stephen J Klein’s reply correctly states, there is a little bit less of the second active ingredient in the dog version, and this is the ingredient used to kill ticks. In my experience, cats don’t get ticks stuck to themselves anywhere nearly as often as dogs, so this is an acceptable solution. For years, I have used the largest size dog dose, 4cc for dogs up to 123 lbs. I divide it into 8 doses by putting it into a sterile glass jar and using a syringe to draw .5 cc. That way I can treat my own cats plus fosters for about $12-$15 a month TOTAL.(Package instructions) (Used in lower doses with same effect)

NOTE: If you’re using Frontline Plus —
The amount of fipronil in the dog version is the same as in the cat version. The “Plus” is methoprene, an insect growth regulator. There’s LESS of it in the dog product than in the cat product, so it’s safe to use the dog product on the cats but do NOT use the cat product on a small dog.
