Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Ideally, we need to wait 48 hours after application before bathing. So, if you were keen to bathe him sooner, then it is best to do that first, thoroughly dry him and then apply it. Otherwise we'd want to have that wee delay to give the product time to absorb and get to work clearing any lurking parasites.

All the best,

Dr. B.
