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 several 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.
