Frontline Plus Flea and Tick Treatment are flea drops.

Fleas cling on to the skins of the pets and the best place to attack them is the place where they hang on i.e. on the skins of the pets. Frontline Plus works perfectly by doing so. Veterinarians recommend this product highly but before buying the product for your pet you need to assess it. You can continue reading to know more about the product but first let us see the guidelines on this page:

Although the product is a bit costly its assurance of getting rid of fleas and ticks dominates over the price factor.

Like all pesticides, Frontline Plus comes with advantages and disadvantages. But you should be aware of them, especially when you are paying a comparatively high price for a product. Please find below the ‘good’ and ‘not so good’ factors about Frontline Plus Flea and Tick Treatment.
Definite striking features make Frontline Plus different from other flea and tick eliminating products. They are:
The serum comes in pipettes which are easy to apply on the skins of the pets. The smaller end of the mouth of the pipette is placed parting the fur of the animals on the skin and then applied on their skin along the spines. Spread the serum all over the skin and wait for the fleas and ticks to die.

The product acts as a strong and active barrier between fleas and ticks and your pets. The serum on the body of your pet acts as a moving shield, as wherever your pet goes in your home or outdoors, the serum guards it against the infiltrating pests.
The two active ingredients make the product much stronger and safer. Fipronil kills the matured fleas and S-Methoprene, being an IGR restricts flea eggs and larvae to mature. Keep in mind most of the flea removing products have their ingredients which either kill matured fleas or disrupt further lifecycles of fleas so that they don’t grow to be adult fleas (For example Frontline, the regular version). This is the only product that has 2 ingredients that work for the adults as well as for the eggs and larvae.
Frontline Plus really works fast. Apply the serum and fleas die within a couple of hours and ticks die within a span of 12 hours. The IGR affects the flea eggs and larvae almost immediately. Repeat the treatment every 30 days if further infestations occur.
If you use the product every month, your pet will get consistent protection from fleas and ticks. They will not have any restrictions on moving or roaming in any part of your home. Their skins will not attract matured fleas too who are thriving for blood meals and hence no question of flea eggs and larvae will arise.
When we assess a particular product we consider 5 essential criteria. They are:
Frontline Plus is manufactured by Merial, a company that has been in the animal health industry since 1977 and has its head office in Lyon, France. The company produces vaccines for animals that extend from livestock to house pets. Recently Merial had a legal problem with a competitor named PetArmor regarding a particular flea removing product but since both the companies are operative and active in the market, it is assumed that the conflict is settled.
Frontline plus promises in a rapid customer care policy if you are not satisfied with the product (replacing the product or sending a professional exterminator to solve your problem). Please call Boehringer-Ingelheim Animal Health Customer Care Team for any problem. But before calling them please make sure you got the product from a licensed veterinarian.
Instead of a single active ingredient, Frontline Plus has two active ingredients for a complete solution of flea and tick problems. Fipronil kills the adult fleas and S-Methoprene, an IGR product disturbs the lifecycle of fleas by restricting flea eggs and larvae to move to the next stage. Both the components work simultaneously and decrease the flea infiltration problem on your pets drastically.
When you are applying any flea removing product on the skin of your pet, it is quite natural they get restless as you limit their movements. You need to part their fur along the spinal cord and apply the product. Comparing to other products Frontline Plus is easy to use, all you need is a partner to hold on to the pet. If one person restricts the pet’s fidgeting by holding its legs so that the other can smoothly part the fur along the spine and apply the serum. The pipette becomes empty after application and the treatment lasts for a month.
