Q. When applying Frontline Plus for dogs a larger amount was placed on the hair instead of the skin. How do we treat for ticks and fleas now
DAVID ELBEZE, DVM, MRCVS
A. Basically it's not advised to put anything else for t least a weak. you can then treat with a different flea and tick treatment such as advantix spot on, Bravecto tablet or Seresto collar.
A. Don't worry, it will eventually work its way down to the skin. For future applications, use the applicator tip to part the hair until you see skin then squeeze to apply the Frontline. You can reapply in 2-3 weeks but this would be considered "off label use". Check with your vet before you do that.
