Zodiac safe?

Species: Dog
Breed: Pom/Maltese
Age: 2-5 years
Is Zodiac Spot Treatment safe to use on my small dog and cat?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

In my opinion, Zodiac is a useless product. It does not work well on dogs and can be very toxic to cats.

I definitely recommend a vet recommended product such as Frontline, Advantage or Revolution.
