Frontline / Bath

Hi everyone

I put Max's frontline on yesterday morning - since I was going to be out of the house most of the day my neighbor was looking after him - she thought she would do me a favor and give him a bath so he was all lovely and clean when I got home !

Needless to say I don't know what to do now - Frontline says not to give a dog a bath for at least 48 hrs - is it harmful to Max if I put it on again now so that he is for sure covered ?

Thanks


Jemma and Max

There were specific warnings about not giving Frontline too soon, so you made a good choice. Chances are, your dog is still phrotected even though your well meaning friend gave Max a bath.

Yes, I agree with Dave. I once put revolution on Django the day he was getting groomed (forgot she was coming over) and the groomer said don't double dose.

I am becoming more leery of these pesticides all the time. Last month I gave Molly her meds for the month and a couple of days later she was doing what I thought looked like a displacement behavior. She would do a quick head turn to her right rear. She never scratched or showed anything on that side. It lasted for a week. She would do it quite often. Suddenly it stopped the day before I was going to take her into the vet. What the hell it was I don't know , the only thing I can link with is the meds.

I'm still too chicken to use them on my two. Now I will say that if we lived in a particularly infested area, I may chose one of them. The halo herbal dip has been great so far though.
