    DefaultApplying Frontline...do yours give you a hard time??

    Jersey acts like I am pouring acid on him when I try to apply the Frontline!! It doesn't matter what goodie I hold in front of him, he squirms like crazy and I end up getting it all over his back (around his shoulderblades)! Any other "Fronline hating labs" out there?

    I give Zoe a chew, not a treat. While she's chewing away, I apply the frontline. Can you try a chew?

    The little bugger will just back away from it until I'm done and THEN go back to chewing! LOL.

    neither luke nor taylor seem to react one way or the other about getting frontline.
    i just go up to them when they are standing, part the fur between the shoulder blades, squeeze, and that's it. they hardly seem to notice anything happened.

    Bailey's fine until she smells it, then she moves like we're pouring acid, too. It doesn't matter what treat we hold in front of her. it takes both of us and we've still gotten it all over her, the floor and us sometimes.

    Shadow doesn't care what I do to him.He is such a wonderful dog in many ways.Now my Lab mix,she acts like I am trying to murder her.Then after I finally get it on her,she shakes as if she just got a bath,shooting some of the frontline all over the place.Next time I put it on them,I am going to do her a little at a time so it all stays on her.

    I have only put it on Tal once yet and he was already hyper. He didn't seem to notice the Frontline and next application I am gonna wait until he is into his chew before applying it.

    Puff wasn't that pleased to have me apply it at first but I store her unused doses of Frontline Plus in the fridge.

    I thought the cold temp might be a factor so before applying it, I now put the dose package into a bowl of body temp water for about 10 minutes.

    That seems to have solved a lot of the reactivity problems.
