Question from Janet Molineaux

Lola And Mia

Chihuahua, age 4

How long does it take Frontline plus to take affect? I know it says 12 days, but I started putting on Lola and Mia on January 1, I am still finding fleas on them daily. Thank you for your time.

Our Vet Says:

Frontline Plus kills the fleas within 12 - 24 hours after contact with the active ingredients. It is possible you will see fleas on your dog because the flea’s life cycle is between a few weeks and a few months. It can also take a few months to have good protection against fleas. If you apply the product every month in a 2 or 3 month period, you should have good protection. When you stop applying the protection and start again in a couple of month’s time it can take another 2 or 3 months to be protected again. If the level of the flea infestation is high you can administer Capstar but not more than one treatment per day.
