Frontline Plus for Cats
FRONTLINE Plus has 2 tough killing ingredients. The 1st, fipronil, kills adult fleas and ticks. The 2nd, (S)-methoprene, attacks flea eggs and larvae. They work together to kill all month long.
You may not see them, but they’re there.
Fleas and ticks can be nestled in hiding places inside and out without you ever knowing it. See below for some of their more common hideouts:
-On other pets and animals
-Around shrubbery and bushes in your backyard where other infested animals frequent
In addition, developing stages of fleas may be lurking out of sight: In carpets, floors and sofas of your home
That’s why you need flea & tick protection like FRONTLINE brand products that can attack fleas and ticks on your pet.
Flea infestations start with just 2 fleas laying hundreds of flea eggs within a matter of days. FRONTLINE brand products prevents an infestation by not only killing adult fleas—which comprise only 5% of the total flea population—but also by killing flea eggs and larvae too.
Flea bites can lead to diseases.
These nibbles start out as a simple itch but can lead to a wide range of diseases or other parasites, including:
-Flea Allergy Dermatitis
These conditions can deprive your pet of energy, cause skin problems or adversely affect your pet’s health in a number of ways.
Ticks are disgusting and can be dangerous. Don’t let their tiny size fool you—ticks are menacing creatures. Once they burrow into your pet’s skin, they may transmit life-threatening diseases.
Some of the most common tick-borne diseases:
-Rocky Mountain spotted fever
