It is best if you don’t bathe your pet after applying the topical since it is detergent soluble. If you bathe your pet with a regular grooming shampoo, it will wash away the product and it will need to be reapplied. If you need to bathe your pet but do not want to wash away the product completely, we would recommend using a shampoo that is low in detergent such as puppy shampoo.
This product contains natural ingredients that kill adult fleas. As the fleas hatch from eggs and develop from larvae, they come in contact with the product and die. If there is an unusually high amount of hatching fleas, the product may need to be reapplied.
