Hello,

Frontline is pretty harmless when ingested. The stomach acid breaks down the product and leaves it ineffective. It would take a whole boatload to cause any toxic side effects- those effects would be muscle tremors, hyper sensitivity and seizures. Again, not likely to be a problem but worst case scenario that is what you'd see and symptomatic treatment at a vet hospital is all that is needed even in those cases.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
