Frontline Spot On 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 several weeks after application, for long lasting protection and 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.
Treats against parasites (fleas, ticks and lice). For dogs weighing 2-10kg. Protection against new infestation is 2 months for fleas and 1 month for ticks.
Directions for use
Break the pipette at the pre-marked area. Part the hair of the animal between the shoulder blades and empty the content of the pipette directly onto the skin at this point. It is very important to part the hair between the shoulders of your dog so that the skin is visible. Apply the product directly to the skin and not the hair.
The minimum period to abide to between treatments is four weeks. It is advised against treating dogs younger than 8 weeks or less than 2kg in weight.
Do not use on recovering or sick animals (systemic illness, fever etc.).
Do not use on rabbits. This product is specially made for dogs. Do not use on cats. Avoid contact with the eyes of the animal. It is important to ensure not to apply the product on an area where it is possible that the animal might lick.
It is also important to ensure that animals (on which the product has been applied) do not lick one another. It is advised against bathing the animal the 2 days following application of the product. Emollient shampoos may be used before treatment but reduce the duration of protection against fleas after 5 weeks if it is used on a weekly basis from the application of the pipette.
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.
For the person applying the pipette: This product may provoke irritation of the eye mucuos. It is therefore important to avoid contact with the mouth or eyes. Animals or users with a known hypersensitivity to insecticides or alcohol should avoid contact with the product.
Avoid contact of the contents of the pipette with the fingers. If contact does occur, wash fingers and hands carefully with soap and water. In case of accidental eye exposure, rinse the with clean water carefully. Always wash hands after use of the product.
