Full Answer

Frontline Plus works to destroy the flea cycle by targeting and destroying the next generation of larvae and flea eggs. The product is water-resistant and is applied once monthly to prevent fleas and ticks from living on animals for up to 30 days. It is veterinarian recommended.

In a recent study, it was proven that the ingredients used in Frontline Plus worked to kill adult fleas in the span of twelve hours. The product continues on to break the cycle of fleas by eliminating the next generation of eggs, larvae and pupae from developing.

Frontline Plus is applied by parting the pet's hair between its shoulder blades and placing the applicator tip just above the skin to dispense the product. Apply the entire contents of the applicator in a single spot directly onto the animal's skin. Do not apply on top of the animal's coat and avoid contact with the treated area until it is completely dry.
