Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS! I have used this product for years on all my Chow Chows and it works perfectly and doesn't leave a smell on their coats like some of these meds do. I have tried new products in the past BUT always have come back to Frontline, and will never change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good for outdoor and indoor cats! I’ve been using Frontline Plus on my kitties for years. We have all kinds of insects, especially a lot of ticks and fleas where I live! (I live in the country). But Frontline Plus keeps my kitties indoor and outdoor, free of the insects and their eggs. It doesn’t make the kitties sick either. Just “bug free”! I highly recommend this product regardless of the price! It is well worth it, as opposed to ticks and fleas in your house, biting the cats and humans alike! You WONT be disappointed!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use The Front Line product is very good,I used it on my dog with great results,so when we adopted our cat,that goes outside often. I tried the kitty Front Line and it works. Have recommended to others.
Date published: 2020-03-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product! We must have some kind of mutant fleas in our area. If we use one of the generic flea killers, our dog will continue scratching at 'ghost' bugs after two or 3 days once applied. With Frontline, she does not seem to have that problem for the entire month. I have seen fleas in her coat after the generic, but not with the brand name. Must be something to it...Don't waste your money on the cheap stuff if you have zombie fleas.
Date published: 2020-02-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog has never had a flea with this product! Once I got him to eat it by mixing in his food, no problems. In the city not many ticks but we go the country in Summer and I have to be vigilant. But most ticks don’t attach so it’s working.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work at all! I had been a believer in Frontline for YEARS!!! It was always my successful "go to" for flea treatment and prevention. After not needed it for many years, this year, thanks to all the warmth and moisture...it's flea time. yuck. Thankfully my cats haven't been that bad at all. Even so, wanting to get ahead of any infestation, I purchased this old reliable. HA! It literally has done nothing. My cats still have fleas and they seem to be doing quite well. So disappointed. Now I have to wait until it would be time to apply again to try another brand. Going to give Advantage a whirl but am not optimistic at all. Ugh.

Why doesn’t Front line Plus work anymore?i have been using Frontline plus for years on my dogs , it’s been a nightmare ,can’t get rid of fleas now!!i smelled the pack of Frontline plus it don’t smell the same , is there a new  ingredient in The  Frontline

Asked by: Debbie
The active ingredient in Frontline Plus has not changed. Since you have been using it for years, you may have run into fleas that have become resistant to Frontline Plus. I recommend that you switch to a different product, such as K9 Advantix, Comfortis, Simparica, NexGard or Bravecto to see if that is the case. The only other issue I can think of as to why your furry friends still have fleas is that the environment is repeatedly being reinfested with fleas from another source, such as raccoons living in your attic or strays going on your property every day.

Can you use half of a dose for a large dog on a smaller dog

Asked by: Cfran
Thank you for your question. We do not recommend using the large dog dose on a smaller dog since there is no way to know if your pet is receiving the correct amount of medication. We recommend using the size that is equivalent to your pets weight.

What are chewing lice?

Asked by: Jean4
Thank you for your question. Chewing lice are tiny, flat, wingless insects that feed on the dead skin of pets. Unlike ticks and fleas, they are species-specific, so different species of lice will attack cats, dogs, and humans with no risk of cross-species transmission. Cat or dog lice are very different from human lice—they are 6-legged, and tend to stay in one place at the base of the fur. In addition to causing irritation, they can carry diseases or transmit tapeworms to pets.

I have one dog who goes outside and another small dog that prefers to stay inside along with a cat. Am I putting the inside animals at risk if I only treat the dog who goes outside? Should I be treating all the animals?

Asked by: soarinslm
Since fleas only spend about 2 hours each day on a pet and the rest of the time in the environment, it is recommended to treat every pet in the house to give the best possible control of fleas. That way, no matter which pet a flea bites, it will be killed to prevent it from reproducing and adding more fleas to the environment.
