  • Yes i would bathe her first dry her off as much as possible and then put it like between her shoulder blades all the way down her spine

  • No, she doesn't need to be bathed, unless you want her to be. You need to pull back the fur on the back of her neck and put it all directly on her skin. WE would do this when our kids were in bed so it could dry and the kids wouldn't wipe it off or get it on them while wet. Don't bathe her right after applying. You might be able to get directions via the internet, try a search.

  • Do not bathe her. The way frontline works is it uses the oil of her skin to transmit the meds all over her body. Do not bathe her for 2 days before or 2 days after. (I worked in an animal hospital for 10 years)

  • I have always been told not to bathe them for a week after the application. We never bathed our dogs before applying it and it has worked wonderfully for us!

  • No do not bathe not bathe for 24 hours prior or 72 hrs after you apply should give it time to soak into the skin.............gently with the tip of the close to the skin as possible...........slide the tube (open of course) from between the dogs shoulder blades to right even with its not rub in or let them get wet.............reapply every month
