What is Frontline Plus?
Manufactured by Merial, Frontline Plus is the no.1 vet recommended flea and tick treatment for canines. Easy to apply, this topical treatment combats fleas and ticks for a whole month. Due to its larvicidal properties, it stops the development of juvenile flea stages and kills them. The elimination of adult fleas, ticks, flea eggs, larvae, and pupae is efficiently handled by Frontline Plus. Therefore, this preventive does not allow the re-infestation of parasites on a dog’s body. Adult dogs and puppies older than 8 weeks of age are safe to be treated with this flea control. This mighty pest killer is tested safe to be used on breeding and lactating dogs, irrespective of their breed.
How it works?
Frontline Plus is formulated with two strong killing ingredients, Fipronil and (s) - Methoprene. Fipronil works as an adulticide and destroys adult fleas and ticks. While the other element, (s) - methoprene functions as a larvicide, killing the early flea stages including eggs, larvae and pupae. These key ingredients collectively destroy all the parasites and breaks the flea life cycle. This long lasting treatment kills almost 100% adult fleas within 12 hours and eradicates ticks in 48 hours of application.
Important Note: Merial is now acquired by Boehringer Ingelheim. So, the manufacturer’s name on product packs may vary according to the available stock.
