Description

Frontline Plus doesn’t just kill adult fleas and ticks but also slays the next generation of flea eggs and larvae. Plus, it works non-stop for 30 days on cats. Frontline Plus has 2 tough killing ingredients. The 1st, fipronil, kills adult fleas and ticks. The 2nd, (S)-methoprene, attacks flea eggs and larvae. They work together to kill all month long. Plus, it breaks the flea life cycle. By destroying the next generation of flea eggs and larvae, Frontline Plus 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 cats.

Key Benefits

Frequently Asked Questions

How does FRONTLINE Plus kill fleas and ticks?

FRONTLINE Plus has 2 secret weapons: fipronil and (S)-methoprene. Once FRONTLINE Plus is applied, this combo stores itself in the oil glands in your pet's skin. It then self-distributes continuously for 1 month to your pet's hair and skin through the hair follicles. Fleas or ticks that come in contact with your pet are dead meat.

How long does it take for FRONTLINE Plus to kill fleas?

In a study, FRONTLINE Plus began killing fleas 4 hours after application.1 Another study showed that within 12 hours, Frontline Plus killed 100% of fleas.2

Do fleas and ticks have to bite my pet for FRONTLINE Plus to work?

No. FRONTLINE Plus kills fleas and ticks through contact with your pet's haircoat. No biting necessary.

Why am I seeing more fleas on my pet after applying FRONTLINE Plus?

Fleas rise to the top of your pet's haircoat as they die. So if you start seeing more fleas after treating your pet, consider it a victory for the killing force.

After using FRONTLINE Plus, I still see fleas in my home. Why?

The fleas you see most likely started as flea eggs that were deposited in the environment before you began using FRONTLINE Plus. Consecutive monthly applications of FRONTLINE Plus will assist with the elimination of an indoor flea life cycle. In some geographical regions in the United States, it may be required to use the product year-round.

Does FRONTLINE Plus have an expiration date?

No. As long as you keep it at room temperature and sealed in its original packaging, FRONTLINE Plus will remain ready for battle.

How long after application can my pet be bathed or go swimming?

FRONTLINE Plus remains effective for 30 days, even if your pet swims or is bathed. After application, keep your pet from getting wet for 24 hours. If FRONTLINE Plus is to be applied after a bath, make sure your pet is completely dry before application.

Can I use it if my pet is on medication?

Before using FRONTLINE Plus, ask your vet about possible interactions with any medications your dog is taking.

Can I use FRONTLINE Plus if I have already applied another flea and tick control product?

Before using, consult your veterinarian.

Does FRONTLINE Plus kill anything else besides fleas and ticks?

You bet. FRONTLINE Plus also kills chewing lice.

Can FRONTLINE Plus be used on pets other than dogs and cats?

No. FRONTLINE Plus should be used on dogs and cats only. There are specific products based on what kind of pet you have and how much it weighs. Be sure to use the right product for your pet.

Can I apply it more than once a month?

Don't reapply FRONTLINE Plus before the month is through. It keeps working for a full 30 days.

How old does my pet need to be in order to have FRONTLINE Plus applied?

At 8 weeks your pet can start benefiting from the power of FRONTLINE Plus.

  • Used to Work - Not So Much Anymore

    By on

    We had used Frontline Plus on our cats for almost a decade and had never had a flea issue before. But this year we added a new cat and she apparently is a flea magnet (even though she almost never goes outside!). We applied Frontline to her as we always had, but it did nothing to help her. By mid summer we had a full-on flea infestation in our house, and even our older cat who never has fleas was infested with them. We switched over to another medicine and the problem started reversing almost immediately. I'm not trying to suggest that Frontline doesn't work - it did work for us for a long time, but our experience taught us that fleas can become immune, and some medications may work differently We had used Frontline Plus on our cats for almost a decade and had never had a flea issue before.

  • Formula isn't as strong

    By on

    The environment has been treated with Fleabusters and will reapply with the recommended 6 weeks after. Even though I do not see any activity in the environment I'm reapplying just incase. I've done all the necessary recommendations from Fleabusters to treat carpet, upholstery, pet bedding, etc. along with vacuuming once a week. I do not see ANY fleas anywhere other than on my cat. I brush her daily twice a day and I still continue to pull out fleas from her. Despite already applying every three weeks for two consecutive months. For the price I'm paying, I will try Advantage instead. I'm giving this a two star because I'm not sure if this is standard that you have to wait several months for The environment has been treated with Fleabusters and will reapply with the recommended 6 weeks after.

  • Reliable product.

    By on

    In the past, I made the mistake of trying an off-brand flea/tick product with our indoor cats. We lost 2 cats, "coincidentally" right afterwards, a week apart. We still had a flea problem with our other, (indoor), cats, so since Frontline advertised their product was safe for kittens, we tried it & both cats were flea-free and fine. They lived out long lives & we eventually got more cats, (indoor & a mouse deterrent as we live in the country). We had another flea issue, (infrequent), so Frontline was our go-to product of choice. Our cats are healthy & once again, flea-free. If we have another flea issue, Frontline will be our product of choice. PS.

  • Allergic-keeps me from getting bit, so definitely helps my cat

    By on

    My kids let the fleas get out of control when I got sick. I am allergic, so I ALWAYS know when there are fleas in the house or on the pets. I will get bit like crazy and welt up with itching. I bought a cheaper brand. It didn't work. I bought Frontline. At the time, we had 2 dogs and 2 cats. ALL the animals were treated. I stopped getting bit. The animals stopped scratching. My kids moved out, so it is just me and my cat. She NEVER gets fleas anymore since I have been using Frontline. It's been 2 years. .

  • Previously Worked. Does Not Any More.

    By on

    I saddened to say Frontline Plus did nothing to help the flea infestation my two indoor cats have! I haven't had a problem with fleas for four (4) years. This year however after moving into a heavily forested area, both my (indoor) cats got fleas. I used Frontline with the last infestation & it worked very well. I'm mystified @ the lack of efficacy now & searching for help! I know I applied it correctly, so that's not the reason. I LOVE Chewy. I simply cannot recommend Frontline.

  • great service

    By on

    We have ordered from Chewy on several occasions. Their delivery is super fast, their product great and customer service outstanding. We bought some product from them to kill fleas in our carpet but, because I babysit for my grandchildren, I got scared to use it. I called, and they reimbursed me, no questions asked, AND even though the product was still sealed, told me to donate it to an animal shelter instead of sending it back. I thought that was really awesome.

  • I might as well have used grape jelly

    By on

    Naturally I am too smart to listen to the advice of others, and having just gotten an 8 week old kitten (covered with fleas) I started looking for flea control. I bathed her with Dawn as many recommend but as soon as she was old enough I bought the Frontline Plus. I applied it to all of my cats and nothing happened other than they had a greasy spot on their necks. Ten days later I am sitting here combing fleas out of the kitten (4 so far) and writing this review. The only effect the Frontline Plus had was to prevent me from using anything else for 4 weeks and having to see my kitten scratching and biting.

  • Waste of money and time

    By on

    I adopted my kitten from a pet rescue. Unfortunately she came with fleas. I tried this product and it killed some fleas but after 4 days on this she still had many fleas on her. I ended up taking her to the vet for Capstar and had to have my house treated by an exterminator. Don't waste your money on this product because it doesnt work and will just end up costing you more money and time than properly treating your pet on the first place.

  • Does the trick!

    By on

    Frontline Plus keeps my cat free of fleas and ticks. We live in an area with a very high tick population. My cat, who spends lots of time in tall grass and in the woods, comes in with only an occasional tick, which is a benefit to both of us. The most important thing is to follow the one-month application schedule. Forgetting a month, as I once did, can result in a flea infestation on your cat and possibly in your house.

  • Didn't work at all

    By on

    I applied Frontline Plus to both of my cats four days ago. Within 24 hours, I vacuumed my carpets and washed all the cats' bedding, my bedding, everything. My cats are still scratching and I am still combing them with a flea comb several times a day. They have just as many fleas as before. I will Advantage II next, but unfortunately I have to wait one month to apply it. Frontline Plus was a waste of money.
