What Makes Frontline Plus Effective

Frontline Plus contains Fipronil and S-methoprene as active ingredients that attack parasites and control their growth.

Fipronil is a broad-spectrum insecticide that attacks the central nervous system of fleas and ticks. It blocks chloride channels of the affected pests resulting in hyper excitation of their nerves and muscles which paralyses and kills them.

S-methoprene is an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) that destroys immature life stages of parasites.

The combined effect of these powerful ingredients eradicates fleas and ticks found on the treated pet. On application, the ingredients get stored in the sebaceous glands and are continuously released by the hair follicles of the pets. As the treatment is water resistant, the efficiency of ingredients remains same even after the pet gets wet. The uninterrupted action of these insecticides for a period of 30 days results in eliminating flea and tick population.
