How does FRONTLINE® Spot On work? FRONTLINE Spot On acts by direct contact with parasites and not via your pet’s bloodstream. It kills fleas within 24 hours without requiring them to bite your pet.
FRONTLINE Spot On is applied externally to your pet’s skin on the back of the neck. The active ingredient, fipronil, quickly dissolves into the natural oils of your pet’s skin and coat, dispersing over the entire body surface within 24 hours and concentrating in the skin's oil glands to form a reservoir.
Fipronil is then secreted with the natural oils of the skin and hair, continuously coating your pet’s skin and hair for several weeks after application – in fact it’s the longest-lasting spot on flea treatment available without prescription.
Frontline Spot On is for the treatment and prevention of infestations by fleas and ticks in Pets, and as part of a treatment strategy for Flea Allergy Dermatitis in Pets. Pets are quickly protected against fleas by the simple to use Frontline Spot-On pipettes.
How do I apply FRONTLINE® Spot On?
Select the correct size pipette for the weight of the animal. It is recommended to weigh the pet.
Hold the pipette upright. Tap the narrow neck of the pipette to ensure the contents are in the main body. Then, break the snap-off top of the pipette along the scored lines. Part the coat between the shoulder blades until the skin is visible.
Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze gently to empty its contents onto the skin, at one or two spots where the animal cannot lick it off.
For Pets, one at the base of the skull and a second 2-3cm further back is advisable.
Care should be taken to avoid excessive wetting of the hair with the product since this will cause a sticky appearance at the application site. This will disappear within 24 hours of application.
It is important to apply frontline to an area where the animal cannot lick off and to make sure that animals do not lick each other after treatment. If licking does occur, a brief period of hyper salivation may be observed, due mainly to the nature of the carrier. Ensure that treated animals do not groom each other after treatment until dry.
Animals may be handled as soon as the application site's dry.
How often do I apply it?
The minimum treatment interval is 4 weeks.
Bathing or water immersion of dogs 48 hours after application will not stop FRONTLINE Spot On working effectively. Apply at 6 weekly intervals if the pet is shampooed weekly with a chlorhexidine-based shampoo and 5 weekly if emolient shampoos are used.
