Frontline Plus for Dogs and Cats

I have two inside cats and Holly Belle. I have read the ingredients for both Frontline Plus Dogs and Frontline Plus Cats. Seems strange to me that the second ingredient for both, (S) Methoprene is included in a higher percentage for cats than dogs. This ingredient is the growth inhibitor to prevent eggs/larvae from growing into adult fleas. It is 11.8% in the cat product, 8.8% in the dog product. Anyone have info on the difference? I would like to purchase one product at a time and use it on all three pets. Holly Belle is around 10 lbs. now so she should need the same dosage as either of my cats. Or, with a lower dose of (S) Methoprene in the dog product, I should be able to use that on my cats... Is this just a ploy to get us to purchase more product than we need??? Frontline Plus brand flea and tick remedy can cause serious adverse reactions in dogs.
