    Tried it for the third time in 8 months on our Yorkshire. Many of the same symptoms. Anxiety, agitation, scratching, rolling, biting at the base tail. Dog refuses to walk long distances, stops and sits every few feet. Bladder and bowel control problems, panting. I called my Vet and they admitted they have seen reactions with small dogs. Suggested I use Dawn dishwashing liquid to break down the Vectra as it is not absorbed into the skin.
    Makes you feel helpless when everything you try fails.

    I applied this product to my shih tzu for the first time tonight. Poor guy has been up twitching, circling, agitated for the last 4 or so hours. Just cleaned his fur in that area to help and will call vet in morning to help. He has has similar reactions to frontline. Anyone have an all natural product that we can use?
