Description

Frontline Gold for Dogs doesn’t just kill adult fleas and ticks, but also slays the next generation of flea eggs and larvae. Even faster than Frontline Plus, Frontline Gold starts working within 30 minutes and lasts for 30 days! It works because of two, tough killing ingredients. The first, fipronil, kills adult fleas and ticks. The second, (S)-methoprene, attacks flea eggs and larvae. They work together to kill all month long. Plus, it breaks the flea life cycle. By also destroying the next generation of flea eggs and larvae, Frontline Gold gives you the power to help prevent a flea infestation on your pet. Frontline products are highly recommended by veterinarians for flea and tick control for dogs.

FAQ

Where do these new fleas come from?

Numerous hosts (including feral cats, opossums, raccoons, and other wildlife species) leave behind flea eggs wherever they go, including your yard. These outdoor flea infestations are often the primary source of the fleas that your pets pick up. Outdoors, developing flea stages can be found in areas protected from sunlight, so some of their favorite places include:

  • Sheds
  • Garages
  • Under porches or decks

How long will a flea infestation in the home last?

Flea eggs, larvae, and pupae in the environment continue to develop and emerge as new fleas (even after your pet has been treated with a flea control product). It can take weeks to months for this already established infestation to be controlled.

What else can I do to reduce the flea population in my home?

Regular use of an appropriate Frontline Gold brand product on your pet may reduce flea infestations in the home. For best results, use Frontline Gold brand products as part of a comprehensive flea treatment plan, which includes coordinated treatment of the home, yard and pet. Vacuum floors, carpets and furniture – especially in areas where an infested pet has spent a lot of time, because that is often where many flea eggs will be found. Wash pet bedding and other fabrics in hot water.

Why do I still see fleas on my pet after applying Frontline Gold?

There are two main reasons:

  • Fleas can jump onto your pet at any time (see where do new fleas come from), and these are not killed instantly.
  • Frontline Gold brand products are designed to kill any new fleas quickly and prevent their ability to reproduce. Frontline Gold kills fleas by overstimulating the flea nervous system, and hyperexcited fleas may move to the top of the haircoat before they die. So seeing fleas on top of the haircoat after applying Frontline Gold can be an indication that the product is working.

How does Frontline Gold for Dogs and Frontline Gold for Cats work?

After being applied, Frontline Gold for Dogs and Frontline Gold for Cats spreads all over the treated animal’s body and is stored in the sebaceous glands under the surface of the skin. From these glands, it is continually wicked through the hair follicles onto the skin and haircoat for a month or more.

Should I apply Frontline Gold for Dogs to ALL the dogs and Frontline Gold for Cats to ALL the cats in my household, even if they are indoor-only?

Absolutely. If you don’t treat every dog and cat, the untreated pets can continue to harbor fleas that will lay eggs, preventing the infestation from being cleared. Even if the dog or cat never goes outdoors, people may bring fleas into the home.

How often should I apply Frontline Gold brand products to my pets?

For continuous protection, apply an appropriate Frontline Gold brand product every 30 days as directed. Consistency is key.

Can I bathe my pet while using Frontline Gold?

Yes. Frontline Gold brand products remain effective for 30 days, even if your pet swims or is bathed. You may bathe your pet 48 hours after application. ONLY use a shampoo formulated for your pet and recommended by your veterinarian.

  • Works well enough if

    By on

    you catch your "infection" early. The 2nd day after application on my "Flea Magnet" pet found an adult. Although, it seemed to be dying. Also this order didn't have the flea topical shipped with a 40# bag of litter... that didn't turn out well for the flea topical last time around.

  • Finally a Flea/Tick Med That Works!

    By on

    My dogs were suffering with biting and scratching due to fleas all summer. It was really bad. We tried regular Frontline, K9 Advantage, and even a costly prescription med but nothing helped. Thankfully, we found this new Frontline Gold product! It killed the fleas within 12 hours. Our dogs are finally no longer scratching and biting.

  • Disappointed

    I have several pets.,I’ve always used Frontline topical and always had good results. However Frontline Gold for small dogs doesn’t work. I used it on three chihuahuas and it didn’t work for any of them.
