It lasts through water anyway but why not just bathe them first...then it can be a fresh application. But I would bathe them with a flea remover first.

    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.

    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

    Don't apply it and then wash it off! What's the point?
