I have a 12yr old female boxer named Sasha. She is routinely treated every month with Frontline. I’ve noticed recently that she will have random bouts of licking the air in a repetitive fashion and salivating.

Tonight I gave her the monthly dose of frontline and about two hours later she started the active licking of the air and ground and I began to think maybe there is a coloration between the frontline and the licking.

Unfortunately, I can’t recall if this happened at the same time of last months dose. I plan on watching next month more closely.

Is it possible for Frontline to have this type of side effect? thank you for your advice!! ~kelly
