Does anyone know if it's ok to apply Frontline Plus if a dog has just had a bath? I know you're supposed to wait after applying it before bathing, but I wasn't sure about applying it after a bath... I found a flea so I want to get it on asap.

According to the manufacturer...once the pet is COMPLETELY dry, then Frontline can be applied.
There's a 1-800 number on the box and you can call and ask them directly.

Yeah, I'd say there would be no problem as long as they are dry. Make sure there's no dampness in the fur....and it should be fine.

I usually do it dry after a bath, or a day after and if it doesn' t rain the next day.

I like to wait at least 2 days after a bath to give it, but if I absolutly have to I will give it as soon as they dry.
If you are not having a huge flea problem I would wait 2-3 days after the bath. Or there are pills called Capstar that will kill the fleas on the dog (but not prevent them) if you are having a bad flea problem you could use one of them until you can get the frontline on them.

You can apply it as soon as the dog is dry, but it's better to wait about 2 days. The topical flea/tick preventatives are spread around the body by the dog's skin oils. After a bath, there is little if any left so the Frontline (or whatever else) won't spread as well. Best to wait for them to build up a little again, but not absolutely necessary.
