Frontline Plus is one of the most popular flea and tick treatments in the market. But, there are many questions that any responsible pet parent should ask before putting their pets on any new treatment. Some of those questions are addressed in this article.
What is FRONTLINE PLUS?
Frontline Plus is a highly effective topical flea and tick treatment for dogs and cats. Frontline Plus kills all adult fleas in 12 hours and ticks and chewing lice in 48 hours thanks to its quick action. Not only that, but Frontline Plus eliminates four different varieties of ticks (Brown dog ticks, Deer ticks, American dog ticks, and Lone star ticks) that are known to transmit Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and other diseases with just one application. Furthermore, it disrupts the entire lifecycle of fleas by destroying their eggs and larvae, preventing a recurrence of the infestation. Dogs are protected for 30 days, thanks to its non-stop activity and waterproof composition.
How does FRONTLINE PLUS work?
FRONTLINE PLUS contains two active ingredients that work together to disrupt the flea life cycle at each stage. One of the ingredients kills adult fleas on your pet. The other ingredient prevents fertile eggs from being laid and larval and pupal development, so preventing re-infestation of your pet and contamination of your home.
What are the ingredients in FRONTLINE PLUS?
Frontline Plus contains the active ingredients fipronil and s-methoprene. Fipronil is a broad-spectrum pesticide that paralyzes and kills parasites by interrupting their central nervous system and rendering them immobile. The s-methoprene for dogs is an insect growth regulator (IGR), which allows Frontline Plus to prevent the flea life cycle from continuing.
