      We have been using Frontline Flea and Tick Spot Treatment Preventative from day one for our golden retriever. Frontline is a flea and tick preventative that comes in liquid form in an easy to dispense tube. Each tube is single use and the shape of it makes it really easy to apply. We take our girl hiking through very wooded, highly populated tick areas where there are always warning signs about ticks that carry lyme disease.

      She is a year and a half and so far has not had ANY problems with fleas or ticks. Not only do we take her hiking, but we take her by rivers, streams, and backyards that

      always have ticks around. So far, so good.

      It is very easy to apply even on long haired dogs. You just simply cut the tip of the tube off, separate the fur, and squeeze it on. The directions say to apply it all between the shoulder blades; however our vet told us to apply a third to the head and the rest between the shoulder blades.

      We use the vet’s method. Since they are single use disposable containers, we don’t have to worry about storing the remainder of the liquid. Our dog doesn’t seem to mind us applying it, nor does she seem to mind having it on.

      In ...

      • fact it doesn’t seem to faze her at all. It easily spreads over the body through the natural oils of the skin, so it is not necessary to apply in any other spot than that specified. When I had a dog growing up, I remember we had the old school flea collar.

        We always had to worry about washing our hands after we touched it and it was just inconvenient. Well flea collars are no more thanks to this advanced treatment. I have seen a tick on her because ticks can still jump onto things, but it jumped right off.

        I believe the medicine prevents them from burrowing in and latching

        on. There are only two minor cons. One is that the vet recommends not bathing her or letting her swim for 48 hours prior to and after application.

        She loves to swim so we have to time her application correctly. !

        The other minor con is that for the first day she’s a little oily in the application spots and if you pet her you might want to wash your hands right after. Other than that, it works great! It’s odorless as well so you don’t have to worry about any foul odors from it.

        My only question is why haven’t they come up with this kind of stuff for people?!?
