Is Frontline any good for dogs?
The active ingredients in Frontline Plus — fipronil and s-methoprene — are largely considered safe and effective for most dogs.
Does Frontline really work for fleas?
A. The active ingredient in FRONTLINE (fipronil) kills fleas by affecting their nervous system, making them hyperactive before dying. These dying fleas often rise to the top of your pet’s haircoat, so the presence of visible fleas after treating your pet, is a sign that the product is working.
Is Frontline any good?
I have used this product for many, many years on all the dogs we’ve had. Always an excellent product, the dogs never had fleas, even though they love to be outdoors a lot. The last two months have been terrible. If the dogs roll over for a belly rub, you can see fleas scurrying around.
Why Frontline Plus is not working?
If you suspect it is not controlling your pet’s fleas, you may, in certain cases, be able to reapply it in as little as two weeks and try again. Speak to your veterinarian about this first if your flea medicine is not working. One Frontline alternative is to switch to another topical product.
How long does it take for Frontline to start working?
Frontline starts working once the product has spread over the whole body surface, which can take up to 24 hours after application. Thereafter, fleas are killed within 24 hours and ticks killed within 48 hours.
Why is Frontline not working on my dog?
Is NexGard better than Frontline?
Nexgard will kill ticks a bit quicker than Frontline does, but Frontline is both less expensive and easier to get your hands on. Of course, Nexgard should be easier to apply, given that it’s a chewable tablet (assuming your dog will eat it, that is). Ultimately, both treatments should work for most owners.
Is Capstar safer than Frontline?
One key similarity is that they are both safe for use in pregnant, breeding, or lactating dogs. They are both safe for use in puppies, with Capstar being recommended for puppies over the age of 4 weeks weighing at least 2 pounds and Frontline for puppies over the age of 8 weeks.
