How about the personal experiences of an emergency vet? I've seen two dogs get muscle tremors to the point of requiring hospitalization from essential oils. I've never seen this with Fipronil.

Were those proper dosages, MissKiwi? Or was it an overdose issue?

One was a proper dose, the other was actually a household scented oil. The dog was a very small poodle mix and had a very strong reaction to it within an hour after the owner sprayed the air.

I can't even tell you how many cats I've seen - but cats are different, and far more sensitive...
