|I've been having a big problem with ticks this year, and apparently so has a lot of other people in the area because the stores I went to were out of the flea/tick prevention that I wanted. So, because of that, I had to order a packet online, and I just received it today.
I am going on vacation over the 4th of July weekend. I am bringing Kato with me. We will be in a heavily forested area with all sorts of creepy crawlies, and I want to make sure he is fully protected when we go up there. However, we're also having a bit of a tick problem here at home.
So, naturally, I'd want to protect him as soon as possible. But if I apply it now, it may "wear out" around the time of vacation or it may be "ending its shift of protection".
I really don't know how these things work or how quickly they fade. It's says to reapply monthly.
If I apply it today, I'd technically need to reapply it the day after we get home from vacation. I don't know, but that kind of seems to be cutting it close.
Should I wait a week or two and then apply it? Should I apply it now and reapply after a month and would the protection last long enough to go through the 4th of July weekend and keep him fully protected? Would I be ok to apply it now and then reapply a day or two before we leave for vacation even though that's technically less than a month?
