CW and TF, My vet told me I could use frontline for dogs also by using 1/2 cc per cat. My cats have never had any problems with this either.
Frontline for dogs or frontline plus is a flea preventive medication that’s available for both canines and felines. It is a topical medication that needs to be applied to the pet’s skin once a month. Several pet owners are of the opinion that it’s safe and economical to use frontline for dogs on cats but this isn’t true. Frontline for dogs contains two active ingredients namely fipronil and s-methoprene in certain amounts. The same ingredients are present in thecat formula but in varying amounts. Since pets are very sensitive to medications it’s important to avoid using dog formulas on cats or vice versa.
You should therefore, avoid giving your cat the formula that’s specifically prepared for dogs. Cats are also more sensitive than dogs. For this reason, you need to be very careful when you use any over the counter drugs like Frontline Plus to treat your pet.

I was googling about it and from what I've read that it's dangerous if you give them too much. It says .5ml of dog Frontline is fine for a cat but, some of the cats are very small and some of them are average/large. I have no kittens but the little ones are kind of large kitten sized.
