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 dogs only. Do not use on rabbits. Do not use on other animals.

To kill fleas, all stages of brown dog ticks, American dog ticks, lone star ticks, deer ticks (which may carry Lyme disease) and chewing lice, apply to dogs or puppies (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 aids in the control of sarcoptic mange infestations. Multiple monthly treatments are recommended for the elimination of mites.

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

Frequency Of Application

When used monthly, FRONTLINE® PLUS FOR DOGS 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 three months. FRONTLINE® PLUS also prevents development of all flea stages for up to three months. Although FRONTLINE® PLUS can control fleas for up to three months, 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 kills ticks for at least one month. A once monthly application is recommended where tick control is needed. FRONTLINE® PLUS kills chewing lice for at least one month. A once monthly application is recommended where chewing lice control is needed. FRONTLINE® PLUS FOR DOGS remains effective even after bathing, water immersion, or exposure to sunlight.
