Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. If you applied it directly the the skin and not the hair coat, she shouldn't be able to rub it off that easily. I would give it some time to work. If you have already seen fleas on her, you will probably continue to see them regardless of the Advantix working or not. All of those problems won't do as good of a job treating for fleas once you see them. They work a lot better as preventatives. If you see adult fleas, you can be assured that 95% of the flea population is already established in the environment in the immature forms. You will never see them, until they become adult fleas. You will have a better time getting the flea population under control by treating the yard and house for fleas and reapplying the Advantix in 7-14 days. You can usually expect to still see a flea here and there for 2-3 months after this. It would be a waste of money to reapply Advantix at this point. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
