Accidentally washed dog after flea treatment =[

Long story short I accidentally washed my dog after giving her a flea treatment approximately 3 hours ago (the liquid kind that is applied between the shoulders and absorbs into skin). UGH I am so upset, what should i do?
It says to reapply again in 21 days, what happens if I reapplied again in the same day?
(I did not use shampoo on her, just warm water)

I would wait at least two weeks, before re-applying, unless you talk to your Vet and he or she clears re-applying sooner.

Thank you, i read the pamphlet and it says : ""Bathing or shampooing a dog 2 or more hours after treatment will not reduce the effectiveness of Revolution against fleas or heartworms"

I guess i am safe?

You are better to do nothing rather than risk an overdose of that stuff because that would be bad for your dog. They can have reactions to it. If it was just water and it sais that on the packet, it will have already absorbed & spread. If its reduced the effectiveness it will probably just shorten the length of time it works. Just keep checking for fleas & you will know. Not sure of the climate, but here fleas love summer & dissapear in winter so that is something to consider. I never use any chemical ones if thats reassuring, only essential oils & never had a flea prob.

Don't know where you are located, but even here in Southern California, this years flea season is winding down. I usually can get away with no treatment between November and April or so, depending. We do sometimes have a heat wave during the winter, and the **&*%%$# fleas will hatch when I think they shouldn't. Guess they didn't read the memo!!!!!!

Hi there, thank you for the response. My doggy doesn't have fleas or ticks, the vet recommended it to me because of her ear mites =[

You might want to talk to your Vet re: the ear mites. Don't think they will go away on their own, and it could lead to a serious ear infection. You could probably call or email your Vet and possibly avoid a trip to the Vet's office. Worth a call.

The vet prescribed revolution which is what i put on my puppy. I brought her to the vet yesterday and they took a sample of her ear and that was when the yeast and mites were discovered. Thats why i freaked out when i accidentally washed her (she pooed and rolled in it, so i had no choice


but today i called vet and she said it should be fine

Ok great, you can scrape the pulp out of the aloe vera plant, whiz it up & rub it in the dogs ears, (slow & gently) just a couple of drops morning & night will releive some of the itching & help heal. Also file your dogs back toenails so they're nice & smooth, if you hav'nt. They can do real damage to their ears otherwise & they get cuts in their ears which bleed. The aloe will help heal those & any bites the mites have taken. Even some dog socks might be good. There's a technique for massaging their ears my vet showed me, right after you put the drops in you massage the bottom part of the ear around the base -back part between your thumb & the finger next to it. My dog loves it & leans in.
