Part your pet's coat between the shoulder blades until you can see their skin.
Place the tip of the pipette on the skin where indicated and squeeze the pipette gently to empty the contents.
Apply entire contents in one spot. See the product label for full instructions.
Does FRONTLINE® PLUS treat for anything else other than fleas?
FRONTLINE® PLUS is also registered for the treatment and control of ticks and lice.
I just applied my first pipette of FRONTLINE® PLUS. How long until my pet’s fleas are gone?
FRONTLINE® PLUS will spread over the coat of your pet within 24 hours. Any new fleas that jump onto your pet will die within 8-24 hours. The adult fleas on your pet represent only 5% of the total flea population. The other 95% are the eggs, larvae and pupae that can remain dormant in the environment for up to 6 months. The best way to kill fleas is to break their life cycle. By applying FRONTLINE® PLUS continually you will deplete the flea population over time and protect your home environment.
Can I use FRONTLINE® PLUS if my pet is on medication?
Yes. FRONTLINE® PLUS is not systemically active and has no known interactions with systemic medications.
I have treated my cat with FRONTLINE® PLUS for Large Dogs by mistake. Will it harm him?
FRONTLINE® PLUS has a long established and wide margin of safety and your cat should be fine. There is no need to stress your cat by bathing him, but if you have recently applied the product you can dab off any excess on the back of the neck with a tissue. If you have any concerns about your pet please contact your local veterinarian or call us on 0800-800-822.
