It's absolutely possible for a dog to be overdosed with flea medicine. If you think your dog has been overdosed, take him/her to the vet immediately.

Never give up on someone you can't go a day without thinking about.

I believe the answer is yes. Years ago my parents bathed their little dog then sprayed it with a flea treatment. They didnt shake the bottle before they applied it and the dog was saturated with the "poison" that had settled at the bottom. The dog became very ill and was taken to the vet. Nearly died but thankfuly did not. Always mix the application and never use more then directed. Hope this helpsLaughing

Of course! Take your dog to the vet immediately.

Please!Take him to the vet.

Call the 1-800 number on the package of flea treatment and call your vet!  You should probably bathe the dog with an oatmeal shampoo if he is scratching.
