Frontline is a treatment that kills fleas and ticks. When parasites come in contact with fipronil, the active substance, on your pet's skin, they are killed instantaneously. After application, Frontline does not enter the bloodstream but concentrates in the sebum in sebaceous glands (a thin upper layer of the skin). Frontline stores for weeks after application, giving it its resistance to rain, baths and shampoo. Fleas and ticks are killed when in contact with the insecticide/acaricide molecule on the skin of the animal. For more great Frontline treatments click here.
Treats against parasites affected by fipronil. Provides treatment to eliminate and prevent fleas and ticks (Ctenocephalides felis). Eliminates biting lice. Protection against new infestation is 4 weeks for fleas and 2 weeks for ticks.
Directions for use
Break the pipette at the pre-marked area. Part the hair of the animal, preferably in two points, at the base of the neck and between the shoulders blades to avoid licking. Empty the content of the pipette directly onto the skin at these points. It is very important to part the hair between the shoulders of your cat so that the skin is visible. Apply the product directly to the skin and not the hair.
The content is then spread along the length of the body and is concentrated in the sebaceous glands which store it. This is released gradually afterwards to provide continuous protection. Standard treatment is one pipette every four weeks (unless other directions given by a vertinary professional). It is advised against treating kittens younger than 8 weeks or weighing less than 1kg. Do not use on recovering or sick animals (systemic illness, fever etc.). Do not use on rabbits. Avoid contact with the eyes. It is important to ensure not to apply the product on an area where it is possible that the animal might lick. It is advised against bathing the animal in the 2 days following application of the product. Ticks may be seen on the animal and for this reason, the transmission of infectious disease is can not be guaranteed. Fleas found on pets can also be found in their sleeping area (e.g. basket) as well as areas where they rest regularly (e.g. couch, carpet, rug). In case of a large infestation, it is advised to treat these areas with an adapted pesticide treatment.
