    Is it ok to bath my dog when it has a dog flea spot on on or does it wash the formula off?

    Do not bathe the dog 7 days before or 7 days after...

    7 days before because you want the dogs natural oils in the skin..because it absorbs it
    and 7 days after so that it is all the way soaked in...


    If it is an emergency my vet says 3 days after but it may loose some of its effectivness..

    Hope this helps!

    Well if it is topical i'd assume it would wash it off. If it were me, I'd wait to bathe the dog until after the treatment is finished.

    That is what I would do and have done and I have never had any problems afterwards...It was still effective. Good Luck!
