Pets can pick up fleas from anywhere another infected animal has been, including the garden, park or even indoors should another pet or human brings a flea in. Frontline Spot On kills fleas and ticks and controls biting lice on both cats and dogs. Frontline is known for being fast acting, long lasting and water resistant. After application, fleas will be killed within 24 hours and ticks within 48. Frontline treatment ensures that your cat or dog is free from fleas for up to 5 weeks in cats and up to 2 months in dogs. Ticks are killed for up to a month in both cats and dogs.
Seeing fleas soon after application is a sign that treatment is working. Frontline works by over stimulating their nervous system which in turn makes the disorientated fleas rise to the surface of your pet’s coat. Any fleas that jump on to a cat or dog after treatment will be killed within 24 hours.
Pet owners should be warned that if they notice a large number of fleas, their house could be infested. It is important to understand that even if a house has been treated with an Insect Growth Regulator spray, the pupae will not be killed. This treatment kills the eggs and larvae only so new adult fleas will still be seen. Pets should be treated every four weeks in order to control the flea population around the home.
When treating a pet, Frontline should be applied directly on to the skin and not on their fur. It is advised to choose the base of the neck between the shoulder blades where your pet cannot lick it off.
Be sure to treat every cat or dog in the household as each can act as a host for flea infestation. At Vet Medic we recommend that your pet’s bedding is washed regularly and carpets and furnishings are vacuumed regularly. Your pet should be allows in any infested areas in the home after being treated as these fleas can be killed through contact with Frontline Spot On. We stock a vast range of Frontline Spot On treatments for dogs and cats depending on their weight.
