    Hello,
    I was just wondering if you can give Frontline to your chickens if it has mites or lice?

    I think some have done it, but if you do, do it with care, as some animals can have bad reactions or overdoses on drugs that would do nothing for a different animal.

    For example, x amout of salt can be tolerable for a 10 lb dog, but that x amount may very well kill a chicken via OD.

    I personally would stick with poultry dust for poultry.
