How FRONTLINE® Brand Products Work -
From the very first application, FRONTLINE kills 98–100% of existing fleas in less than 24 hours and continues to provide fast-acting, long-lasting flea and tick control.

Fipronil, the active ingredient in all FRONTLINE Brand Products, is stored under your pet's skin, in the oil glands, so FRONTLINE continuously reapplies to the skin
and hair through the hair follicles making it waterproof.

FRONTLINE will remain waterproof and won’t rinse off – even through your cat’s self-grooming or your dog’s monthly bath or swim. In fact, FRONTLINE doesn't stop
working for an entire month, giving your pet non-stop flea and tick control.
FRONTLINE breaks the flea cycle

FRONTLINE starts killing fleas and ticks as soon as they come into contact with your dog or cat. FRONTLINE Plus also keeps future fleas from biting by killing flea
eggs and larvae before they mature.

FRONTLINE breaks the tick cycle.

FRONTLINE Plus and Top Spot are gentle enough for use on puppies and kittens as well as pregnant and nursing mothers.

FRONTLINE in action

Simply squeeze FRONTLINE Plus between your pet's shoulders and the active ingredient, fipronil, dissolves into the natural oils of the skin and coat. From there, it
quickly spreads over your pet's entire body to provide long-lasting, waterproof flea and tick control that keeps working for an entire month.

Application Instructions are included in each box. this is not a kit.

The Vet's #1 Choice Against Fleas and Ticks - Dog, cat, puppy or kitten, it's easy to see why FRONTLINE® Brand Products are the #1 choice of veterinarians to control
fleas and ticks on your pet.

Sometimes, pet owners think that their animal couldn't possibly have fleas or ticks. The reality is that every pet, dog or cat, is at risk for fleas and ticks.

Even indoor cats are at risk for getting fleas, especially if cats share a household with dogs. Cats are constant groomers, so fleas are not always as obvious as they
are on a dog.

Because it is waterproof, FRONTLINE is ideal for dogs and cats providing ongoing protection, even if your pet is caught in the rain or has a bath.

Read what pet owners, like you, have to say about FRONTLINE®

Dear FRONTLINE, The fleas and ticks in our neighborhood used to drive my cat, Roxy, crazy. It seemed Roxy was always scratching and agitated. I was nervous
about our kids' health every time I found a tick on Roxy. After using an inexpensive store-bought flea powder for years with little success, my wife took our
veterinarian's advice and bought FRONTLINE Plus for Roxy. Our veterinarian said FRONTLINE Plus was the only product to use – that ingredients in some other
products can be dangerous to cats. Within a day of applying FRONTLINE Plus to Roxy, she was more comfortable, more relaxed and less agitated. We haven't seen a
flea or tick on her since. Thanks, FRONTLINE.

Dear FRONTLINE, I have been battling fleas on my dog, Pudge, for several years now. I have tried several different shampoos, dips, bombs, groomers, and so on,
but nothing seems to work any longer than a few days. I've also used different products for the outside and inside of my home with little results. I've used  FRONTLINE
for two months and have only seen one flea. It's been very enjoyable to get a decent night's sleep for me, and I'm sure for my dog. Thank you for your product.
