    is it best to clip the hair over the area were applying surpass? or does it even make a difference?

    It's pretty runny, so I think it would go right through the hair. It goes through DH's hair ().

    Seriously, yes, it should be fine to apply right to the area, sans clip.

    I clip them when they have a winter coat on where I put it. But in the summer usually not i just rub it in very well.

    You don't have to, but I always kept the area clipped when I was using it. I felt more made it down to the skin if I did.

    Although if it was a spot that would look really odd if clipped, I'd likely just go over the hair. I used it on a fetlock, so just kept the legs clipped to the knee/hock.

    Really comes down to your preference.
