FRONTLINEŽ Plus stops and prevents infestations and kills adult fleas, flea eggs, and flea larvae. Prevents all flea stages eggs, larvae, pupae from developing. Kills fleas which may cause flea allergy dermatitis. Kills all stages of deer ticks (which may carry Lyme disease), brown dog ticks, American dog ticks, and lone star ticks.

To kill ticks that may carry and transmit these serious diseases, count on the control of FRONTLINEŽ Plus.
FRONTLINEŽ Plus For Dogscontains fipronil and the insect growth regulator (IGR) (S)-methoprene. Insect growth regulators interrupt or inhibit the life cycle of a pest. Flea eggs and flea larvae that are exposed to (IGR) (S)-methoprene will never develop into the adult jumping, biting and (most important) reproducing fleas. FRONTLINEŽ Plus effectively targets all stages of fleas. Fipronil collects in the oils of the skin and hair follicles, and continues to be released from hair follicles onto the skin and coat, resulting in long-lasting activity against fleas and ticks.
FRONTLINEŽ is waterproof, since the active ingredient in FRONTLINEŽ products is stored in the oil glands in the skin, from which it is continuously released onto dogs' fur, FRONTLINEŽ remains truly waterproof for 30 days or longer. FRONTLINEŽ is so gentle it is approved for use on puppies 8 weeks or older. It is also approved for breeding, pregnant and lactating dogs. For best flea and tick control, apply FRONTLINEŽ Plus monthly throughout the year.
