Help protect your best bud from fleas with FRONTLINE Gold for Dogs Flea & Tick Treatment. This formula helps kill adult fleas, flea eggs, flea larvae, and ticks after regular use. It’s formulated with three active ingredients—fipronil, (S)-methoprene, and pyriproxyfen—to help disrupt the flea life cycle and fend off future flea infestations. Plus, it’s simple to apply, and designed to be waterproof and last for one month. Enjoy walks and hikes with your canine companion without worrying about nasty pests.

Key Benefits
  • Formulated with three active ingredients to help disrupt the flea cycle.
  • Helps kill adult fleas, flea eggs, flea larvae, chewing lice, and ticks.
  • Helps kill flea eggs and flea larvae to help inhibit future infestations.
  • Simple to apply.
  • Designed for a waterproof protection.

For external use only. Do not use on dogs or puppies under 8 weeks of age or weighing less than 5 pounds. Sensitivities may occur after using ANY pesticide product for dogs. If signs of sensitivity occur bathe your dog with mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian immediately. Dogs may experience some temporary irritation at the site of product application. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on medicated, debilitated, pregnant, lactating/nursing or aged dogs. If your dog is exhibiting signs of and/or is being treated for skin dermatitis, talk to your veterinarian before applying any topical flea and tick control product.

Important Information

Fleas rise to the top of your pet's coat as they die, so consider it a triumph if you start seeing more fleas at first, after treating your pet. If you’re still seeing fleas after application, it may be because your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment, which may include other pets, surfaces and outdoor areas. It may take up to 30 days to break the entire flea life cycle. Additionally, you should also treat sources of new fleas (i.e., carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.

How does FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs work?

FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs spreads from the stripe-on application, rapidly covering the entire dog and localizing in the hair, on the surface of the skin and in the sebaceous glands. These glands act as a reservoir, continuously replenishing FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs onto the skin and hair coat, so it keeps working even if the dog gets wet.

How often do I need to use FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs?

FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs should be applied once per month to protect against fleas and ticks. Year-round application is essential for pets in many parts of the country.

Do I need to use other flea & tick treatments while using FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs?

No, FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs is an effective treatment against fleas and ticks that works for a full month. If applied correctly and on a regular monthly basis, you do not need to use any other treatments while using FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs.

Why might I see fleas on my dog after treatment?

You are likely seeing new fleas on your pet, which are jumping on your pet as it moves through infested areas in and around your home. Depending on the severity of the existing infestation, you may continue to see new fleas jumping on your pet for three months or more.

Why is it important to use the correct pack size for my dog’s weight?

Using the correct pack size ensures your dog receives the optimum dose for which the product has been shown to be effective.

Can my dog get wet right after applying FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs?

Your dog needs to be dry at the time FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs is applied and remain dry 48 hours after application.

Where can I find the expiration date for FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs and how long will it last once I’ve bought it?

    Works well

    By tempeViking on Jun 20, 2021

    Our last dog couldn't tolerate the topical flea and tick so he got the chewables. The chewables don't agree with our current dog, but he does well with the Frontline Gold. It manages the listed pests well. In north west Minnesota, tick country, we've found only dead ticks on him that comb right out. The Gold forumlation doesn't, erm, bug him at all.

    apply before infection

    By hihi on Apr 15, 2021

    This stuff works great. You should apply this before all the ticks come back so around April and then reapply monthly until September/October and you should have no problems. I’ve found many dead ticks already and I applied it only a week ago. My yard is a flea and tick magnet so I make sure to apply when the snow is all gone. I have bought both kinds for dogs and cats and it works awesome. I got a barn cat that was infested with fleas and didn’t realize until she spread it to my other cats but I still caught it quick enough one application each killed all the fleas. Highly recommend this product for all pets just make sure to buy the correct one for your pet.

    not helpful

    By Tiff on Apr 19, 2021

    The only reason I gave this product 2 stars was that I liked how to open the vile to apply on my puppers. I think we still have to wait 2 more weeks to give his next flea preventive med. I have used these up only be doing it every other month with topical that works, hoping the Frontline would work at some point. My lil man is itchy & has fleas. This hasn't been helpful at all. I won't buy it again. Waste of $.
