Follow all directions and precautionary statements carefully. Use only on dogs and cats. Do not use on rabbits. Do not use on any other animals.

To kill fleas and all stages of brown dog ticks, American dog ticks, lone star ticks, deer ticks (which may transmit Lyme disease) and chewing lice, apply FRONTLINE® Spray to dogs, cats, puppies or kittens as follows:

To Open: Push the button on top of the trigger and turn the nozzle to the spray position.

To Close: Push the button on top of the spray and turn the nozzle to the X position.

1: Wear household latex gloves.

2: Hold bottle in upright position. Ruffle the animal’s coat with one hand while applying spray mist to the animal’s back, sides, abdomen, legs, shoulders and neck.

3: For head and eye area, spray FRONTLINE on a gloved hand and rub gently into animal’s hair.

Do not get this product in your pet’s eyes or mouth. Apply spray mist until animal’s hair is damp to thoroughly wet. Approximately 1 to 2 pumps per pound of the animal’s body weight will be required. Pets with long or dense coats will require the higher rate.

As with any flea control product, wash hands and exposed skin thoroughly with soap and water after use.

To prevent flea build-up or reinfestation, use FRONTLINE Spray prior to the onset of flea season and monthly thereafter. Ticks do not need to receive spray directly upon their body for complete control. Multiple monthly treatments are recommended for the elimination of mites. Do not reapply spray for 30 days.

FRONTLINE Spray remains effective even after bathing, water immersion, or exposure to sunlight.
