is a manufactured insecticide that works on a cellular level on adult
fleas and ticks. It seeps into an insect's cells and blocks chlorine
molecules from passing through. This stops the nervous system from
working and paralyzes the insect.
Because fipronil is so strong, it only needs to be applied once a month to continuously kill fleas and ticks. Once it is applied with an oily liquid to keep it on the skin of your dog, it slowly seeps into the hair follicles and oil glands where the fleas and ticks live.Main Purpose
To kill adult fleas and ticks.
Specifically designed to target developing larvae and eggs, methoprene prevents a flea population from increasing.Main Purpose
To break the flea life cycle and stop further infestation.
Some animals are sensitive or allergic to the ingredients in FRONTLINE, so be sure to watch for any signs of allergic reaction. If your pet shows signs of itching, restlessness, nausea, lethargy, or breathing difficulty, seek veterinary attention immediately.

Use FRONTLINE Plus for fast-acting, long-lasting flea and tick control. When you apply FRONTLINE, fipronil, the active ingredient, is stored in the oil glands under your pet's skin. It's then distributed continuously to the skin and hair of your pet through the hair follicles. This way, FRONTLINE provides waterproof, month-long protection against future pests while breaking down the flea and tick life cycles.Simple Three-Step Application
Applying FRONTLINE Plus to your pet is an easy three-step process. First, remove the Frontline Plus applicator from the child-resistant package and cut or lift off the plastic tab to expose the foil and then peel the foil down. Next, hold the applicator upright and away from your face and body and snap off the tip. Finally, place the Frontline Plus applicator tip on the skin between your pet's shoulder blades and squeeze the applicator to apply the entire contents in a single spot onto your pet's skin.

My vet recommended Frontline Plus years ago and I find it to be safe and effective. It works and my dogs are pest free.
It may be that I was negligent in re-applying the Frontline Plus in a timely manner, but I was very surprised when a routine blood test showed that he was Lyme-positive. He has had few neurological symptoms, and none recently.
I am going to continue to use this product, but try to avoid woodsy environments where ticks thrive.
