Question by S: is flea treatment fipronil safe for use on lactating dogs?
I have a mother pomerian who is nusing her 3 week old pups, is it safe to a skin application
for fleas & ticks containing fipronil (active ingredient)?
Answer by Jenny Manyteeth
Read the label on the package. If it doesn’t say, call the company: there’s a phone number on the package.
I personally doubt it, and I would not use any flea treatment on a nursing mother. She should have been treated before the pups were born, and a Pom should be safe in her home, away from such things.
