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.
I was hopeful that this new gold product would have increased effectiveness. It did not. This product did not work for any of my dogs. This was an unfortunate waste of money.
My pets have battled fleas all summer. I treated my four cats and two small dogs (all under 20 lbs) with Frontline Plus this spring with no apparent effect. In addition, when the infestations got really bad, I shampooed all of them twice a week with a thick suds of Sergeants Gold or Fresh and Clean or Adams flea and tick shampoos. Between shampooingsI also sprayed them thoroughly with either Sentry Pro or Duravet "No'Bite" flea and tick mist and rubbed it thoroughly into their fur. The cats are indoor/outdoor cats and the dogs are indoor/ outdoor also but limited to a 16' x 64' dog run that has grass. I thoroughly sprayed the entire dog run with Tempo and a month later saturated it with Adams Plus yard spray. (I spent a lot of money on all of this stuff). I made a bath tub out of half of a plastic 55 gallon barrel which I could fill with water and let it warm in the sun. With all of this treatment, they all scratch continuously and twice per week shampoos bring live fleas out of their fur. I ordered this Frontline Gold in the large tubes and treated both the cats and dogs with it. It did reduce the fleas some but they are still scratching and the last shampoo still turned up live fleas. I guess the next step is to try the obscenely expensive veterinary administered pills or the obscenely expensive $52 flea collars. Bottom line is the Frontline Gold did have "some" beneficial effect.
This did not work for my dogs. Their fleas were not even that bad. would not waste my money again, I used the bayer product(collar) worked very well. But the reports are it is no longer safe
This was recommended by the vet and works great have bought it 2 times with no problems
This works great for my 92 pound baby - she's never had a flea or tick since I started using Frontline.
I bought this, as it said it was for xl needs. I have a great dane/golden retriever mix (130lb). I administered it this past Thu, she is STILL chewing herself raw. I will not use this brand again. Sadly, I thought Frontline was a more dependable brand.
This flea treatment does not get rid of or kill the fleas. My dogs are itching more than ever due to the fleas.
Have always used frontline since working in vetanarian office our animals have NEVER had fleas!
Maybe they make weaker fleas in your state, but down here in Texas, ours are tough. And this supposedly improved version of my long-time favorite is just about as effective against them as a chopped liver rubdown. Frontline Gold isn't a pharmaceutical preventative; it's more like an appetizer for blood-thirsty fleas. I keep checking my mailbox for a thank you card from the thousands of microscopic carnivores that feasted on my poor pooch in his new Gold sauce. I bought a three-pack, used the second applicator three weeks after the first, then tossed the third dose in the trashcan. Chewy's price is, as usual, one of the lowest, but don't throw away even that bargain amount. Spend one dollar of the money you'll save on a pair of tweezers and sit there for thirty days, picking the fleas off your pup by hand. Then send the rest of your cash to me, because I won't waste a nickel of it. Believe me, you and your dog will both sleep better. And so will I.
With four animals in the house, and all neighbors having animals, frontline is a MUST! We have no issues with fleas or ticks in our house. I also love that chewy has allowed me to automatically re purchase these every 6 months so I don’t forget!
