Frontline Plus

I was just wondering...will Frontline Plus flea/tick prevenative come off in water? Because I just applied it on all the dogs today and I was hoping to groom Sophie over the weekend which would include a bath...should I wait?

Also, Rocky is a short-haired dog and the package says it prevents fleas for three months but ticks for only one month. I was thinking of only applying it to him every three months since with him it's unlikely he'll get ticks because of his short fur. In all his life, he's only had two ticks which were noticed really quickly and removed. He's up to date on his vaccines, including the one for Lyme Disease. Do you think I should still apply it every month? Also, he's very difficult when I'm putting it on and I got some on his fur. Is that ok? He's not able to lick it off or anything.

I think it used to say on the package to wait 2 days before giving a bath after application. I don't have one handy, but check the box. Other than that, yes it's waterproof.

I'd say talk to your vet about the timing of the applications, it's really going to depend on the situation.

Thanks for the fast reply .

Ok, I'll talk to the vet. I should be there soon anyways since I think we're running low on the heartworm tablets.
