    Is is Frontline Spot on or Frontline Combo spot on as the products have a different chemical composition? ( Frontline only is Fipronil based and Combo is Fipronil plus methoprene ). Either way, both are ok when dry.

    Well before we moved in with Muma nd Dad Mum was using Frontline Combo on Simba but I perswaded her to stop using Frontline at all and use the Programme injection and now he may have fleas!!
    So Mum applied the Frontline spot on yesterday about 3pm ish.
    But will probably go back to using the Combo or if I can perswade her the Stronghold when its time to treat again!

    Do I need to keep worrying about touching something that Simba may have touched? Can it work like that? If I touch the sofa that Simba has been lying on and rubbing himself all over then I touch the bunnies can that be a way of poisoning them?

    I have not touched Simba since yesterday!

    Trust me, it's ok after it's dry. Read the final paragraph of the link below. This is a reliable source and one I use routinely at work. If you are worried that bedding or some other textiles were affected when it was wet, these can be washed, but once it's dry it's ok. The alcohol base may affect other household surfaces, but that's it. The data sheet is for Frontline, but it's similar for the Combo too. Combo does highlight the need to ensure no licking or grooming from other cats occurs before it's dry, but it's ok once it is. Don't let the buns groom the cat if it's been treated.

    Cat and bunnies dont have any contact with each other.
    I am just worried in case I walk in to our room and poison the bunnies from touching something that Simba has touched!

    So would I be right in saying that if anything was going to happen to my babies it would have done by now?

    I just had a major panic!
    In the kitchen/Lounge there was a drop of something 'wet' on the floor and immediatly my brain said it was a drop of frontline and it gt on my foot.
    But realisticaly how could it have been a drop of frontline because it was applied at 3pm ish yesterday it would ahve been dry by now even if it had got on to the floor, right?
