Hello and question

Post by rlh680 » Fri, 11 Aug 2000 04:00:00



  Hello all, I have been lurking here for about a month now. I
have two dogs, one is a 6 year old female black lab, and the
other is a 3 year old female golden retriever. Both are very
spoiled dogs and they go everywhere with us.
  Now my question. We are going camping in the U.P. of Michigan
next week. And even though I don't have them on any kind of
flee/tic stuff, I went to the vet and got some of those drops
that you put behind their necks. I applied the stuff to both of
them this past Monday evening. The vet said the stuff will soak
into the skin and last up to a month. Now for the problem. I
forgot that the golden was due for a trip to the groomer on
Tuesday a.m. She went and got a bath and hair cut. Will the
flee/tic application that was administered on Monday night still
be good?. Or would it have been washed off?. Should I go back to
the vet for another vial of the stuff, and would it do any harm
to her if she got another application?.
Thanks for the help.
Rob H

My vet says that Top Spot needs to stay on two or three days before bathing.  If
you bathed the next day, I would check with the vet.  Should not hurt to
reapply, but use the vet's advice.

i beleive it is the soap that washes the stuff off. you will have to
call the groomer and write down the name of the soap used. then contact
the vet  to get more  stuff and tell him the name of the soap used  and
he will tell you when you can reapply.  someone told me there are soaps
out there buy the various  flea spot  on--companies that can be used and
it does not take the stuff off .  but if  it was not used then you
probably will have to reapply it.  i would waiit  til 3 days before i
leave to be sure some time has passed ( i never trust anyone) and then
reapply  after personally  speaking  to the vet  about the shampoo and
that reapplying is safe -----at least be in the office while that girl
is talking to the vet.-------------------i have learned some things in
my twenty years with pets and  this is why i say check with the groomer
and the vet personally.

Hi,
It should say on the back of the packet or instruction sheet. I use Bob
martins  and it say the effectiveness is reduced if the dog gets very wet
i.e swimming or shampooing. but you must wait 7 days to reapply,

I use Frontline TopSpot and, with that, you're not supposed to bathe the dog 2
days before or after application.

Check with your vet, but if you used Frontline, you are supposed to wait 48
hrs. before bathing.  And 48 hours after bathing also.  And in the future,
you should read all prescription instructions thouroughly prior to use.

I you used Advantage Flea stuff--According to our vet. you can bath the
dog as soon as yhe liquid is obsorbed .He said the liquid obsorbs in the
fat of the dog and repells any flea and tick up to a month.Missy got her
treatment on a Friday and bathed on Sunday. No problems and it has been
3 weeks.

You should not bathe a dog 48 hours before or after treatment or it will
not be effective......Liz
