Frontline and thick fur

OK - I have used frontline for some time but I have always worried that its not getting to where it should because of the thick fur on the necks of Maine Coons


NO SKIN SHOWING! Both my now deceased MC and Bindi the female I have adopted had such thick fur I just could not see any skin!

The male Hector has skin which I could SEE when I parted the fur - so no problem there

But what about where it is just a no-go seeing the skin - what do you do?

Re: Frontline and thick fur

you can part the fur with your fingers
or the end should be on the skin before you squeeze it
then should be ok

Actually, no you can't. Maine coons are known for their very thick fur especially the undercoat, and they don't lose the ruff like some of the wedgies do.


I was quite amazed that I could see Hector's skin though IMO he has a 'european' type coat as opposed to 'american'.

I will try the blowing trick next time and also Wendy's tip of pushing the fur up as I suspect wedgies also have very thick fur undercoat.
