Likewise, people ask, can you use Frontline more than once a month?

If a pet still has fleas, many veterinarians willuse the product more frequently than oncemonthly, sometimes as often as once every 2-3 weeks.While Frontline Plus is labeled as waterproof, Iusually advise clients to wait at least 24 to 48 hours beforebathing their pet.

Beside above, how often can you flea treat? Never use a household flea spray on your pet. Petflea sprays can kill fleas, but may need to bere-applied from as often as every few days, up to every fewweeks. Flea tablets work in your dog's bloodstream, whichmeans fleas have to bite before they are exposed to theactive ingredient to kill them.

Accordingly, how often should Frontline Plus be applied to dogs?

FRONTLINE® PLUS FLEA AND TICKTREATMENT FOR DOGS FRONTLINE Plus dog is not suitable for use onrabbits. Use every 4 weeks to help protect your dog fromfleas and ticks.

Can you reapply Frontline before 30 days?

A. FRONTLINE Plus remains effective for 30days, even if your pet swims or is bathed. Afterapplication, keep your pet from getting wet for 24hours.
