Can dogs get nits? Can they catch them off kids and vice versa? I know dogs can get lice - but are the same type of lice? And if Frontline and Advantage works on dogs can we use it on the children - if we've run out of their stuff and the chemist is closed? Are the chemicals in lice remover to kids similar to the doggie products?
If so why can't we use something on the kids as a preventive to stop them getting infected?
