FRONTLINE® PLUS FOR CATS contains fipronil and the insect growth regulator (IGR) (S)-methoprene. FRONTLINE® 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, ticks and chewing lice.

Directions For Use

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Do not allow children to apply product. TO PREVENT HARM TO YOU AND YOUR PET, READ ENTIRE LABEL AND DIRECTIONS BEFORE EACH USE. FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS AND PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENTS CAREFULLY. USE ON CATS ONLY. DO NOT USE ON RABBITS. DO NOT USE ON OTHER ANIMALS.

To kill fleas, and all stages of brown dog ticks, American dog ticks, lone star ticks, and deer ticks (which may carry Lyme disease) and chewing lice, apply to cats and kittens (8 weeks or older) as follows: Remove applicator from child-resistant package. Hold applicator upright and snap applicator tip away from face and body. Place applicator tip through animal’s hair to the skin level between the shoulder blades. Squeeze applicator, applying entire contents in a single spot to the animal’s skin. Avoid superficial application to the animal’s hair. Only one applicator per treatment is needed.

FRONTLINE PLUS FOR CATS can also be used for the treatment and control of flea, tick and chewing lice infestations on breeding, pregnant and lactating queens.

Frequency Of Application

When used monthly, FRONTLINE® PLUS FOR CATS completely breaks the flea life cycle and controls tick and chewing lice infestations. Research demonstrates that FRONTLINE® PLUS kills adult fleas, flea eggs, and flea larvae for up to six weeks. FRONTLINE® PLUS also prevents development of all flea stages for up to six weeks. FRONTLINE® PLUS kills ticks for at least one month. A once monthly application is recommended where tick control is needed. Although FRONTLINE® PLUS can control fleas for up to six weeks, if there is a high risk of reinfestation or if the pet has fleas which may cause flea allergy dermatitis, a once monthly application may be needed.

FRONTLINE® PLUS FOR CATS remains effective even after bathing, water immersion, or exposure to sunlight. Avoid contact with treated area until dry. Do not reapply FRONTLINE® PLUS for 30 days.
