Part the coat on the back of the dog, the best spot being at the base of the dog's neck in front of the shoulder blades. Place the tip of the Frontline® Plus pipette on the skin and squeeze the pipette several times to empty its contents completely onto the dog skin in this one spot. Monthly application is recommended.
