What is Flea5X Plus - Generic to Frontline Plus?

Flea5X Plus is a monthly topical flea and tick preventative for dogs and cats over 8 weeks of age. It contains the same active ingredients as Frontline Plus. Flea5X Plus contains fipronil to quickly kill adult fleas, ticks and chewing lice on your pet. Flea5X Plus also contains (S)-methoprene, an insect growth regulator that kills flea eggs and larvae to help end the flea life cycle. In addition to killing adult fleas and preventing reinfestation, Flea5X Plus is effective against ticks such as the brown dog tick, the American dog tick, the lone star tick and the deer tick, including those that may transmit Lyme disease. Choose Flea5X Plus for a great savings over leading comparable brands and get the same effective protection for your pet.

Benefits:

How it Works:

Flea5X Plus contains fipronil, a slow-acting, broad-spectrum insecticide that disrupts the central nervous system of fleas and ticks.

Customer Reviews
Flea5X Plus - Generic to Frontline Plus is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 268.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smells terrible Used this product for a little since it is cheaper than Frontline with basically the same ingredients. Probably works the same but the smell is awful. The dogs and the house smell kinda like super concentrated anti-freeze. Best way I can describe it. Going back to Frontline.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the few dollars saved I bought this generic to save a little money but I can't stand the smell of it! It's very strong and lasts for several days so I returned it and will just pay little more for the non-generic from now on.
Date published: 2017-02-26
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Scent of Product This product was awful. The scent of this product lingered and was unbearable. Only used the product once. It was a waste of money. While generically it is supposed to be equivalent to Frontline in terms of active ingredients, one is not able to get pass the lingering odor.
Date published: 2017-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Easy to apply and seems to work. As an added bonus, it was more reasonable to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in the South for outdoor cats! I have used this product on two male cats, both about 6 years old, for over a year and am very pleased. We have a lot of ticks here in rural Arkansas and I've only seen a couple total on my cats, and never any fleas. Nothing is 100%, and with having 6 animals we appreciate the value and effectiveness of this product. Definitely a thumbs up!
Date published: 2017-02-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real easy to apply Have been using about 9 months now after switching from Frontline. The clip and apply packaging per dose is real easy to apply. A++ rating on effectiveness. I live in No VA and large temperature swings occur so I apply year round. No ticks or fleas. Great product for a very busy 4 year old beagle ....PUTTER my beagle will sit willingly for application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm very happy with this product have used it in the past this is a repeat purchase I would recommend
Date published: 2017-02-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible smell I've used this two times now, and won't use again. It smells so bad that we decided to throw the remaining tubes away and use something else

I have a toy poodle he's only 3 pounds can I still use the pill for 4 pound 

Asked by: terri
This product is not recommended for dogs under 4lbs. However, you can use Advantage II, provided your pet is over 7 weeks of age or older. http://www.1800petmeds.com/Advantage+II+-prod10433.html?Ntt=Advantage+II

What's the difference between the 5x (that i've used for years) and the pricey script oral meds that vet recommends? Thanks. 

Asked by: marcie
The biggest difference is that one product is taking orally so it needs to be monitored and approved by your vet and Flea5X Plus is not. Another difference is that the pills will only do the adult fleas and not the life cycle like the topical.

Does this kill fleas in 12 hours and ticks within 48 hours as frontline does?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, this contains the same active ingredients as Frontline Plus; therefore, it should work the same to kill fleas and ticks.
