FRONTLINE GOLD FOR CATS contains Fipronil and the insect growth regulators (IGR) (S)-Methoprene and Pyriproxyfen (Nylar®). FRONTLINE GOLD FOR CATS 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, chewing lice and mosquitoes.
FREQUENCY OF APPLICATION: When used monthly, FRONTLINE GOLD FOR CATS completely breaks the flea life cycle and controls tick and chewing lice infestations. Research demonstrates that FRONTLINE GOLD FOR CATS kills adult fleas, flea eggs, and flea larvae for up to six weeks. FRONTLINE GOLD FOR CATS also prevents development of all flea stages for up to six weeks. FRONTLINE GOLD FOR CATS kills ticks for at least one month. A once monthly application is recommended where tick control is needed. Although FRONTLINE GOLDFOR CATS 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.
