Bathe before applying the Advantix, then wait several days before bathing again (the dogs, not you!!)
no you can't give them a bath for 2 days after it was applyed because it will wash off after you put it on

It's ok to give them a bath beforehand using a mild shampoo formulated for dogs. I would not recommend a flea and tick shampoo as they can be very harsh.
If you want to bathe them afterward you can, just wait as long as it says on the package. I think it's 24 hrs but it could be 48 hrs.
Don't apply it and then wash it off! What's the point?
