    We use Advantage for fleas for all of our dogs and cats. This is the best dosage chart I have ever seen.

    http://www.lisaviolet.com/cathouse/advantage.html


    Quick list for Advantage, for both cats and dogs:

    Cats up to 9 pounds - 0.4ml
    Cats 10+ pounds - 0.8ml
    Dogs 11-20 pounds - 1.0ml
    Dogs 21-55 pounds - 2.5ml
    Dogs 55+ pounds - 4.0ml


    To further break down the Advantage dosage by weight alone:

    0.4ml = 0-10#
    0.8ml = 11-20#
    1.2ml = 21-30#
    1.6ml = 31-40#
    2.0ml = 41-50#
    2.4ml = 51-60#
    2.8ml = 61-70#
    3.2ml = 71-80#


    If you're using Frontline, use the following guidelines:

    Cats 0.5ml
    Dogs 11-22 pounds - 0.67ml
    Dogs 23-44 pounds - 1.34ml
    Dogs 45-88 pounds - 2.68ml
    Dogs 89-132 pounds - 4.0ml

    Good post!

    I buy the "large dog" Frontline off ebay, that comes with a glass vial and syringe.

    Treats the dogs and cats, for a great price.

    I use the large dog Advantage and suck it up in a syringe. Does the same for cats and dogs. Have too many of each to do it any other way.

    I also use the large dog Advantage on both dogs and cats. Anyone on here tried Revolution? I am wondering if the same thing can be done with it. Haven't been able to find out enough info on it, and don't want to take a chance until I know more. Thanks.
