Hello again and thanks for waiting.I have worked out an answer for you below ...1. As long as it was washed off quickly after application as in your case then things should be fine. Typically you should thoroughly wash the area with the likes of Dove and then rinse every well. You should do this at least twice. 2. K-9 Advantix for Dogs contains permethrin which is potentially toxic to dogs so in addition to the above you should monitor your dog carefully just to be on the safe side. For a detailed description of expected side effects, treatment etc. follow this LINK I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.Regards, ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
