I might be worrying for nothing but just wondered if any dog owners could reassure me! Went away for the weekend and asked my Hubby to put a tick and flea treatment on our dog ( advantix). He did that on Saturday but it hAs left a sticky feeling in his hair and when I stroked him Tonight I felt it on my hand. Do u think it can harm my pregnancy?

Thanks guys I'm a worrier!!

As long as its not in your mouth and you wash your hands. (What my vets says)

I wouldn't worry too much. I didn't apply frontline to my dog - made hubby do it. I would just wash your hands after touching him for a bit but it's been a few days. Give the vet a bell perhaps if you are really worried? I got bitten by a flea for first time in years, early on in PG, so i was more worried about bites than the treatment to be honest.

I would think that these things aren't good to be in contact with but i think you'd have to have pretty prolonged contact with the stuff to have an affect on baby. Just my thoughts, I'm no expert but as i say, could ring the vet or ask on the dog forum maybe? Bound to be some pregnant/ex-pregnant doggy people on there who know more than me!
