Every night before I go to bed I put the dogs' bowls with food in them on the counter for my husband to feed them in the morning. The other night I put out their Frontline flea medication also on the counter so I wouldn't forget to give it to them. Well, this evening I asked my husband if he knew where the green flea medication stuff was and he said "Oh, I thought you wanted me to put that stuff in their food so I sprinkled it on top of their food the other morning". :eek: Well, the dogs seem to be OK but my heart kind of did a flip when he told me that. It was my fault for laying them out there like that and my husband doesn't have a clue what the flea stuff looks like so we both learned something very valuable and hopefully the dogs will be all right. I have now applied the medication where it's suppose to go, between their shoulder blades. :roll:

OMG i'm glad the dogs are ok. It is a funny husband story though (besides the part that the dogs could have been hurt).

Ah, the dear, helpful hubbies! LOL
I would call the vet, tell them about it and see if they have any concerns. There could be a test or something long term that they will want to do or to tell you to watch for...perhaps even something to neutralize the possible toxicity.
(No need to take the dog in, just call and see what they say.)

Well, I called the vet and they said it won't hurt them although it won't work to prevent fleas. :) So all is well with my doggies. Thanks for all your replies. I guess my kids lived through childhood with silly parental mistakes and so will our dogs.

Peanut honey, when someone serves you and xtra meal you can't dilly dally around, you have to eat immediately before someone realizes their mistake and takes away your 2nd dinner :roll:
