I have "quirky" dog who gets aggressive when I try to apply this to his back...I would like another alternative for application. Any suggestions?

Your best bet would be an oral flea prevention, such as Comfortis. Or you may consider a combination flea/heartworm prevention product such as Trifexis.

Try comfortis, it is in pill form, and it works well!

You can also purchase a shampoo version if he's ok with baths?!

Bring him to your local vet and ask them if they can apply it for you. We do it all the time at my place.

Have you tried the spray version? I find that's a lot quicker and easier when your dog doesn't like to get sprayed like mine.

Perhaps it burns your dog. Or at least irritates him a little. My dog did that so I had to switch from Frrontline to a pill. Works better as Frontline never really worked for him.

Make it a big deal for him and praise him and get a helped to give him treats while you apply it.

Get a family member to hold the dog or sit at his face and talk to him a and pet him as the other member puts the application on the dog

I bribe with a special treat. He does much better.
