In addition to fipronil, which kills adult fleas, Frontline Plus contains an important addition: (S)-methoprene. Methoprene is an ingredient that kills flea eggs and larvae, which keeps ALL stages of fleas from developing and bothering your pets and your family, not just adult fleas. Methoprene mimics the juvenile growth hormone of fleas, keeping the larvae from molting and developing into more mature forms. Frontline Plus is long-lasting, fast acting flea and tick control you apply on the skin once monthly.
The fipronil in Frontline Plus spreads over the pet's body with the body oils killing 98-100% of the fleas or ticks within 24-48 hours, and controlling transmission of tick-borne disease, such as Lyme disease. It works by affecting the flea's or tick's nervous system, causing paralysis and death. Fipronil collects in the oils of the skin and hair follicles and then is released over time (up to 1 month) from the hair follicles onto the skin and hair. Aids in the control of Sarcoptic mange.

Directions: To kill fleas and all stages of brown dog ticks, American dog ticks, lone star ticks and deer ticks (the major carrier of Lyme disease). Hold applicator upright and snap applicator tip away from face and body. Place applicator tip through dog's hair to the skin level between the shoulder blades. Squeeze applicator, applying entire contents in a single spot to the dog's skin. Avoid superficial application to the dog's hair. Only one applicator per treatment is needed.
Frequency of application: Research demonstrates that Frontline® Plus kills fleas up to three months and ticks for at least one month. A once monthly use is recommended where there is a high risk of reinfestation, if the pet has fleas, which may cause flea allergy dermatitis, or in situations where tick control is needed. When used monthly Frontline® Plus completely controls both flea and tick infestations. In areas with less severe flea infestations or in areas where ticks are not a threat, Frontline® Plus can be applied once every two to three months. Frontline® Plus remains effective even after bathing, water immersion, or exposure to sunlight. Avoid contact with treated area until dry. Do not reapply Frontline® Plus for 30 days.
