Pet Med Spotlight – Frontline Plus
Frontline Plus for dogs, manufactured by Merial, is a treatment given to dogs that controls and prevents the infestation of fleas, ticks and lice on dogs and puppies.
It prevents the multiplication of fleas and ticks by inhibiting the egg’s development (ovicidal) as well as larvae and pupae (larvicidal) that originate from eggs that are laid by adult fleas for two months following treatment of Frontline Plus.
It also has the added benefit of treating and controlling Flea Allergy Dermatitis that can result from the infestation of fleas.
Frontline Plus (active ingredient is Fipronil/Smethoprene) will provide you with the most effective and complete treatment of flea and tick infestations, killing them within 48 hours of treatment.
Frontline Plus for dogs controls and treats:
- Paralysis ticks
- Brown dog ticks
- Biting lice
- Flea allergy dermatitis (FAD)
Frontline Plus – Directions of Use
It is important that Frontline Plus is applied to an area of the skin where your dog cannot lick it off – the best place to administer it is behind the neck between the shoulders.
To apply Frontline Plus, part the dog’s hair at the back of the neck to reveal a patch of skin. Squeeze the contents of the pipette directly onto the skin ensuring that the contents of the whole of the pipette is administered.
Frontline Plus will then spread across the coat of your dog over the next 24 hours, killing fleas and ticks as it spreads. After 24 hours Frontline Plus will become waterproof. Because it is waterproof, Frontline Plus is effective even if your dog is bathed/shampooed or goes swimming.
Apply Frontline Plus every month for full effective treatment of fleas, ticks and biting lice.
Frontline Plus Side Effects
Should your dog lick Frontline Plus it may hypersalivate for a brief period. Some temporary irritation may occur, which is normal. Consult a veterinary surgeon if signs persist or become more severe after a few days.
