Frontline Plus is a monthly topical flea and tick medication which has a unique mechanism for distribution through your pets the skin and is considered the least toxic of all the flea medications.
Frontline Plus has two core ingredients, one that kills adult fleas, lice and ticks, the other stops flea eggs from hatching. Frontline Plus is not systemically absorbed, instead being distributed through the oily glands in the skin, making it an excellent choice for owners who dislike the idea of chemicals being absorbed internally by their pet. Suitable for Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large dogs.

Why We Choose Frontline Plus
When choosing which flea and tick treatments make it into the Love That Pet range we spend a significant amount of time reviewing, assessing and road testing each product for efficacy, safety and ease of use. Only when a flea or tick treatment meets our high standards does it receive the Love That Pet tick of approval. Here are key reasons why the team at Love That Pet endorses Frontline Plus.
Dual Action Flea & Tick Control. As a dual action product Frontline Plus provides your dog or cat with protection against fleas and ticks. We recommend Frontline Plus for flea and tick control because it:
It breaks the flea life cycle by killing existing fleas and their eggs and then works to repel other fleas
Protect your dog from brown dog ticks
When applied fortnightly, Frontline both repels and kills paralysis ticks before they have the chance to take hold. The spray should be applied every three weeks for protection from paralysis ticks
Easy To Apply. Frontline Plus is easy to apply on your dog. For the spray, spray the mist onto the animal's back, sides, stomach, legs, shoulders, and neck working it through the coat wearing gloves. For the face and head, spray the solution into a gloved hand and carefully apply around the face to avoid contact with eyes and ingestion through the nose or mouth.
For the spot-on treatment, simply take one of the applicator tubes from the pack and apply the solution as a spot between your dog’s shoulder blades. The applicator tubes contain pre-measured doses according to the size of your dog. You need to make sure the solution is in contact with the skin and not just your dog’s coat for it to be effective.
Safe. Frontline Plus is considered by Vets to be one of the safest flea and tick products on the market. It is safe to use on dogs and cats and it is unlikely that your pet will experience side effects. It is non-toxic, although it is possible that dogs with very sensitive skin might experience irritation in the area where the treatment was applied. If your pet does have an adverse reaction, consult a veterinarian.
Long Lasting. Frontline Plus is effective on common parasites such as fleas, mosquitoes and brown ticks for one month. After one month it needs to be reapplied. If you live in an area known for paralysis ticks, Frontline Plus spot-on treatment needs to be applied every fortnight to provide maximum protection from these deadly parasites. The spray should be applied every three weeks for protection from paralysis ticks.
Waterproof. Frontline Plus is waterproof, however we recommend allowing the solution to absorb over the first 48 hours after application with no baths or swimming.
