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.

All right, my cat is protected with Flea prevention. How about me? The fleas just loves me, my husband can't believe it because they don't bother him. The bombs are no longer work. Do you have any suggestions?

Asked by: Cirmi
Thank you for your question. Flea bombs (also called foggers) are not recommended because they do not soak into carpets well, where flea larvae live, and they are not considered effective by most pest control specialists. Getting rid of fleas is a multi-pronged approach: Rid pets of fleas, which may require medication from your veterinarian. Rid your home of fleas, which involves thoroughly cleaning, dusting, and vacuuming all areas. Outside areas must be maintained including keeping the lawn cut short. You may need flea control pesticides. Before using these products, check that they are safe to use around pets. It may be necessary to consult a pest control specialist.

Is one application of the cat 1.5 lbs enough for a full grown cat weigh aprox 5 lbs it did not seem to work Its almost been 30 days

Asked by: Deb1
Yes, one application should be enough for all cats, regardless of weight. If your cat still has fleas, it may be due to fleas in the environment. Flea5X Plus does not prevent fleas from infecting your cat; it kills fleas after they bite your cat and ingest the medication. Therefore, it is important that you treat the surrounding environment for fleas as well, to prevent new fleas from attaching to your cat.

Flea5X Plus does not prevent fleas from infecting your cat; it kills fleas after they bite your cat and ingest the medication. Therefore, it is important that you treat the surrounding environment for fleas as well, to prevent new fleas from attaching to your cat.

Can I use this in addition to a flea collar?

Asked by: Jenn
It is not necessary to use both a flea collar and another flea preventative medication. Stick with one flea preventative for your pet. If you are unsure which is right for your pet, speak with your veterinarian.
