Frontline
Hi. How long after applying Frontline Topspot must my dog stay dry? Is it 24 hours, or 48 hrs? And can I bath her after applying it?

Your dog should not be bathed for four days before or after applying Frontline. This is because the product needs to settle into the oily substance of the skin and into the hair follicles, from where it is slowly released over the next four to six weeks. After the four-day period, your dog can be bathed as normal.
