Fleas, Ticks and Lice in Puppies and Dogs

I always bathe my puppies in warm water and a mild puppy shampoo at just before 8 weeks, drying them thoroughly in a warm place.

The day after their bath I Frontline them as a protection against skin parasites.

Adjust the spray to a fine mist.  Dosage is 3 ml per 1kg bodyweight. (Check your frontline dispenser for the amount in ml per pump action).  Avoid ears and eyes.

I use Frontline spray every 2 to 3 months, – on adult dogs at a dose of up to 6ml per kg bodyweight.  Again avoiding ears and eyes.

This ensures as far as possible that our dogs are free from external parasites.
