FRONTLINE® provides convenient and effective flea, tick and chewing lice control for cats and kittens.
- Fast-acting and long-lasting
- Prevents reinfestation
- Convenient to use

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, 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 TOP SPOT 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® TOP SPOT FOR CATS completely controls both flea, tick and chewing lice infestations. Research demonstrates that FRONTLINE® kills adult fleas for up to six weeks. FRONTLINE® kills ticks for at least one month. A once monthly application is recommended where tick control is needed. Although FRONTLINE® 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® remains effective even after bathing, water immersion, or exposure to sunlight. Avoid contact with treated area until dry. Do not reapply FRONTLINE® for 30 days.
