    Hey rgrsgrl! Flea/tick question
    On your site I found:

    "remember to not bathe your pet 2 days before and 2 days after applying.
    Frontline Plus is definately reccomended for pets prone to FAD (Flea Allergy Dermatitis)."

    One of my labs is very allergic, and I just started using Frontline Top Spot (Advantage didn't stop the ticks he gets while running with the horses) -- Wondering why not to bathe him before applying. I'm planning to let them play in the ocean Friday, then bathe them and put on more Frontline before I take them out to the barn on Tuesday. Just wondering about what I'm missing here.

    Thanks.

    Hi! Ok, I'll explain this exactley as we do to clients.
    Your high end top spots such as Frontling Plus and Advantix eventually work it's way through the skin all over the body, it can achieve this through working with the natural oils in the skin.
    Right after you bathe your pet, the oils are decreased and it takes several days to build up again. After you apply it, giving it a few days to work throughout the oils achieves more effectiveness.
    Did that make any sense? Hope this helped. I can't type as fast as I can talk

    That makes such good sense I'm almost ashamed I didn't think of it myself. So I suppose if I just hose them off after our trip to the beach I don't need to worry.

    Thanks!

    lol, no worries. Yeah just a hosing would be fine. It's the shampoos that really strip the oils out.
    Have a great time at the beach! I'm so jealous!!!

    Hey, what kind of horses do you have?
    I have a quarter horse yearling.

    As it was explained to us by our Merial rep. absolutely no shampoos 2 days before or 2 days after.
    For the amount of money Frontline products cost....... I wouldn't risk it, natural ingredients or not.

    Hey, what kind of horses do you have?
    I have a quarter horse yearling.
    I haven't had my own horse since 1996. There are so many horses that need someone to ride them. These days I'm riding Buddy, a 30+ year old quarter horse whose owner can only ride on weekends. So I take him out Tuesdays and Thursdays. My friend rides an old tenessee walker, and we each bring two dogs along. -- My two black labs and her black bouvier and her son's yellow Australian Cattle dog. We keep talking about getting our own horses, gaited ones, probably Missouri foxtrotters, but it's so cheap and easy to ride other peoples horses we may never get to it.
