Final Thoughts

More fleas might be seen when using Frontline Plus initially as they rise to the top of the haircoat as they die, this should not happen as you move along the process. It is also good to know that each application remains effective for 30 days even when pet is bathed for has gone for a swim.

One thing we like about their product is that there’s no expiry date and will remain effective when product stays sealed and kept at room temperature.

It is recommended to start using Frontline plus at the 8 week mark of your pet. We do need to remind you not to be tempted to apply more than one treatment per month on your beloved pet as it will only do harm than good.

Tip: Fleas can become immune over the years, it’s not a bad idea to alternate between brands (i.e Frontline Plus, Advantage and PetArmor).
