    Is it okay to give Izzy and Frodo their Frontline right after a bath as long as they are dry? I remember a thread that said you shouldn't allow your dog to be wet for 3 days, or something like that, after applying the flea meds, so I just wanted to make sure. Common sense tells me it would be okay as long as they are completely dry, but I don't have all that much common sense :p

    Got that off their site
     
  3. These flea and tick preventives require OIL on the skin to disperse and be effective.

    Don't put your frontline on for at least 48 hrs after a bath.
     
  4. ok, my advantix I think is 48 hours. :D

    I have my box of Frontline right here and the sticker that my vet put on the box says do not bathe 48 hours before or after application. You definitely need oil on the skin in order for the medicine to disperse.
