Bathing Your Dog After Applying Frontline
Frontline is a popular flea and tick preventative for dogs. It is applied topically to the skin, usually between the shoulder blades. After applying Frontline, it is important to wait before bathing your dog.
How Long Should You Wait?
It is recommended that you wait at least 24 hours after applying Frontline before bathing your dog. This allows the medication to be fully absorbed into the skin and ensures that it will be effective in preventing fleas and ticks. If you bathe your dog too soon after applying Frontline, it may reduce the effectiveness of the medication.
What If My Dog Gets Dirty?
If your dog gets dirty or wet before the 24 hour waiting period has passed, you can use a damp cloth or sponge to spot clean any areas that need attention. Avoid using shampoo or soap on these areas as this could also reduce the effectiveness of the medication.
