    DefaultFrontline: Did I do it right?

    My first time using Frontline on squirmy 8 wk old pup and I think I got more on her fur than skin. How bad is that? Any suggestions about how to be more effective next time? Thanks!

    Next time try having someone feed him a little bit of peanut butter as a distraction.

    Do you live in an infested area? That is mighty young for Frontline.

    We live in rural CT - lots of ticks and Lyme. Vet recommended it now and other friends here with pups have done same.

    Interesting - I live in NJ and don't use it at all. I'm sure your vet knows best.

    I'm sure it can. I just have an issue with applying pesticide to my dogs period. So - I would be reluctant in any circumstance with putting it on a puppy.

    But - like I said prior - I am sure their vet knows best.

    I noticed the same difficulty (mainly in the fur) so developed this procedure:

    We use some disposable rubber gloves (about 100 or so to a package). I warm up the Frontline+ by putting its dispenser in warm water for about 10 minutes before applying just to cut down on any squirming by Puff. (I keep our Frontline+ in the refrigerator.)

    Then I break open the applicator end, spread the fur and press it fairly firmly against the skin in the between-the-shoulders area and squeeze.

    Then I rub the area to insure that any liquid on her fur has also rubbed against her skin.

    Why do you keep it in the refrigerator? There is no exp. date.

    Because I keep all Puff's (& my) excess meds there.
