frontline?!

my puppy (4 and half months) just got a tick after having the frontline "treatment" at 3months. should i apply another one (on his back side of neck) or is it too toxic? he just had yesterday his first bath and i was thinking this would be a good moment

sorry too hear about the tick....

Frontline needs to be applied every 4 wks if you also want it to prevent ticks....

Never apply it 48hrs before or after bathing...I always go on the safe side and make it a week.....Frontline is transported over the body by the layer of protective fat on the skin, which gets washed away by the bathing....So if you have bathed before, it will not cover the whole body....if you bath straight after it might wash off before it was able to penetrate the skin in all areas.....

good luck

Sorry to hear about the Ticks....We use Revolution for Radar...no Ticks here yet so I guess I should cross my fingers. He seems pretty good with it.

Sorry to hear about the tick. I think sometimes these things happen even when we DO take all the preventive measures. I saw one one that had just jumped on Gucci a few months back. Fortunately, she's white/cream, so it was pretty apparent and hadn't made it to her skin yet.

SOOO...I had my husband also spray the yard for ticks with some stuff he bought at Home Depot and that helped too. Maybe you could treat your yard as well?

What is the difference between Revolution and Frontline (other than tick protection)?

Sally,

Here's the discription I found:

INDICATIONS:
Revolution is recommended for use in dogs six weeks of age or older and cats eight weeks of
age and older for the following parasites and indications:
Dogs:
Revolution kills adult fleas and prevents flea eggs from hatching for one month and is indicated
for the prevention and control of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis), prevention of
heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis, and the treatment and control of ear mite
(Otodectes cynotis) infestations. Revolution also is indicated for the treatment and control of
sarcoptic mange (Sarcoptes scabiei) and for the control of tick infestations due to Dermacentor
variabilis.

Not sure of the difference really I never have read the back of the box. All I know is that Radar was given it by the Vet on his first Visit...I wasn't there when it was given. He hasn't had any problems. The Revolution protects against a whole Myriad of things like heartworm, roundworm fleas, ticks and a whole slew of other thingsd I can't remember right now.

We are using Frontline Plus this year.So far,so good!No fleas or ticks!Last year I used K9Advantix and was disappointed in the results.

Be careful of the bathing before and after---I have made this mistake a few times.Now like Sierra says,I wait to bathe several days before and after,otherwise you wash it back off or irritate the skin.

My understanding is that Frontline doesn't kill adult fleas until they actually *bite* your dog...then they die. Does anyone know if this is the same with ticks?

Orava, when you found the tick, was it alive on your dog? Or dead?
