Frontline Plus for dogs is a topical ’spot-on’ application for the treatment and prevention of flea infestation and control of brown dog ticks, paralysis ticks and biting lice on dogs and puppies
Frontline Plus has a rapid onset of action and kills re-infestations with newly acquired adult fleas for at least one month.
Frontline Plus also prevents development of flea eggs, larvae and pupae produced by adult fleas acquired for three months after treatment.
Frontline Plus controls brown dog ticks for up to one month, and paralysis ticks for up to two weeks after application. Daily searching of dogs is necessary to minimise the risk of tick paralysis. Searching should continue throughout the paralysis tick season.
Frontline Plus may be used for the treatment and control of Flea Allergy Dermatitis in dogs.
Frontline Plus may be used as the only product for flea control as it breaks the life cycle on the animal and in it’s surroundings by killing all stages of fleas.
Application Choose an area where licking cannot occur e.g. on the back of the neck. Part the coat until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze several times to empty the contents directly onto the skin.
Water Fastness Dogs may be treated with Frontline Plus following bathing and shampooing once they are dry. The product will spread over the coat of the animal within 24 hours. Once spread, Frontline Plus is water fast. It is recommended not to bath or shampoo dogs during the 48 hours after treatment. Thereafter, bathing, water immersion or exposure to sunlight will not reduce the efficacy of Frontline Plus.
Safety in Dogs Frontline Plus has demonstrated a significant margin of safety for use in dogs and puppies over 8 weeks of age and in breeding, pregnant or lactating bitches. If licking occurs shortly after application, a brief period of hyper-salivation may occur due to the taste of the vehicle. Do not use Frontline Plus if you or your pet have a known hypersensitivity to insecticides or alcohol.
