Splitting up a large dose of Advantage?
I was reading somewhere that you can buy a dose of Advantage for XL dogs and use a 1 ml syringe to split up the dose for a smaller dog to save money. Has anyone heard of this or do this? Is this safe?
I like the way Advantage works, but I am finding it difficult to spend $50 a month on it for my 4 animals (2 cats, 2 dogs). Advantage seems to be the only thing that completely controls the fleas. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Heather, mommy to Drake (7 yr old son), Triss (yorkie),
spike (dachshund), ash and misty (my cats), and a baby on the way due Oct 1st!

I used to use half an application of Frontline on mine. The weight was up to 22 pounds...and they weighed far less than that. It still worked.
The cats I never divided because the weight limit was closer to what mine weighed.
The packaging has changed on frontline...you get a vial with the product and an applicator.
I'm sure you know...but don't put dog flea medication on a cat.
