Let's talk about how to use Frontline on dogs. Frontline is an anti flea and tick product that is placed on the skin once a month, and prevents fleas and ticks, and kills them. And so fleas can cause a lot of problem with skin, dermatitis that sort of thing from flea allergy. Ticks actually can carry tick born diseases like rocky mountain spotted fever, lyme, and some other ones like ehrlichia that can cause true illnesses. And so it is a good idea to keep pets in endemic areas of ticks up to day on Frontline. Now the way it is used is the first thing you need to know it is used in the oils of the skin, and so you cannot bathe usually three to four days before or after applying the product. What you do is you take the vial, and you spread the hair back right over the shoulder blades, and when you expose the skin the Frontline is placed in that area. It is going to look like a big droplet of oil that will dry, and eventually spread over the body, and kill fleas and ticks for a month. Just again make sure you don't bathe the dog three days or four days before or after application, and use it monthly that is the best way it is used.
