Résumé / Abstract
This investigation determined fipronil residues on gloves worn while petting dogs after Frontline application. Frontline contains 9.8% fipronil, which controls fleas and ticks on dogs for at least 30 d. Frontline (1.34 ml) was applied topically on adult household dogs and gloves worn for 5 min during petting were collected 24 hr and 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 w post-Frontline application for fipronil residue determinations using GC/MS. The highest concentration of fipronil (589.3 ′ 205.7 ppm) was detected 24 h after Frontline application and was undetectable in the gloves collected at 5 w. Repeated exposure to such contamination can pose human health risks.
