Subject: Re: Frontline for ear mites

Unless my memory is failing me (entirely possible!), all the various
packages for the different size animals all contain exactly the same
drug! The only thing different is the quantity of the actual liquid,
but it all contains the same percentage of the active ingredient. So
if you buy the biggest dog size, you get MUCH more for only a little
more money. You just need to divide it up into ferret sized doses.

Same goes for Advantage. Bigger size contains nothing different,
just more.

Maybe you could suggest to your vet that he read the packaging or let
you look at the various packages and see for yourself.
