We have always used Frontline for fleas/ticks. Even though I make sure to apply it directly to his skin, it still seems that it gets soaked up by his fur leaving a wet, oil slick on his upper back. Is it just me or is that how it works? Is there anything that isn't quite so messy?

Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
I have the same problem. It seems to go away after a couple of days.
It's not the destination, it's the journey!
Remy doesn't have that much of a problem, but that happens with Brooklyn. We have to leave her downstairs the night we apply so it doesn't get all over the comforter.

That sounds about right to me. I usually make sure I apply it when they aren't playing with other dogs that day.
Yep. Same thing happens with Abbey!
It is normal. Also, try to not them them swim up to 48 hours after application.
Yep! I always make sure they don't have to "do anything" for a couple of days.
After we got a bad batch of frontline and got completely infested with fleas , we switched to Comfortis. Simple, easy pill that they readily eat. No muss, no fuss.
Downside is that it is for fleas only....not ticks. But ticks just have never been a problem. I check them regularly for ticks. So far, I'm way more than happy with the Comfortis.
That happens to me sometimes too. I do it the same every time but once in awhile I will see this "slick" spot on them. It is usually dry by morning.
