    Default Advocate for Dogs???

    How long do you have to wait AFTER you apply Advocate for Dogs until you can bath the dog?

    Just wondering!

    I looked but couldn't find anything! Maybe I was having a boys look!

    Doesn't really matter though...unless Poppy gets really dirty I won't need to bath her until after she comes to you. Or I can do her on Friday arvo if you want?

    She had her Advocate today just so you know. And she is due for her Drontal tablet on Friday...will get one from the vet on Thurs.

    Some of the spot-on treatments say that you can supposedly bath them within a few hours, but personally I would leave it for at least 2-3 days, or at the minimum the next day.

    If you know that you are going to bath your dog, then I'd recommend bathing then apply the spot-on the next day.

    Advocate is only a few hours, I leave 24 to be on the safe side. Why are you using Drontal as well? Advocate does the whole gammet!! (Except tape worm I think) I use Advocate on all the rescues and my own brood - except Bella who fitted about 5 mins after I applied Advocate to her skin

    Thanks. My vet said to use Drontal too as Advocate is not good enough for worming puppies??? She said that once Poppy is 6 months then I can drop back to just the Advocate. I only bought a 3 month supplie of Advocate though so once thats finished I think I will swap to something else that I can use in conjunction WITH the Drontal.

    I wish there was a product out there that did EVERYTHING!!! Advocate is pretty close but it misses out one type of worm I think.

    For worms I don't use anything but Drontal, it's the best product and I have found it is the most gentle on their stomach.
    Vet has tried to give me other brands before and they all resulted in a nice technicolor array of vomit on my floor.

    We don't have Hidatus Tapeworm or Heartworm is Tas so I don't know if Drontal treats those as I have never had to check!

    I'm new and have just been reading threads as I haven't got a puppy yet and really don't know that much about dogs but thought I could help...
    I have 2 cats and use revolution or advocate each month - I still use Drontal to worm them, however my vet told me that I could use the Drontal every 6 months rather than every 3 months.
    I use advocate or revolution because they do more than the other products available. I use Drontal because of the extra worm it kills than the other products available.
    My cats are inside cats but I think when I get a puppy I will use Advocate each month and Drontal as recommended on the packet since dogs go everywhere.
    Sorry for the long post but I hope it helps,
    Krystal.
