Frontline flea treatment for cats – one of the most effective flea treatments
If you own a cat, you want to ensure you give your pet the very best flea, tick and worm treatment on the market. One of the market-leading treatments is Frontline flea treatment for cats
What is Frontline flea treatment for cats?
Frontline and Frontline Plus for cats are both highly effective spot-on parasite treatments. Frontline is one of the leading brands of flea and tick treatment in the market, manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim and distributed throughout the world. Frontline contains Fipronil to disrupt the central nervous system of the flea, whereas Frontline Plus contains two active ingredients – Fipronil and S-methoprene that are combined to produce a fast-acting, effective treatment.
Frontline Plus to tackle fleas and eggs in the home
Frontline Plus is one of the best formulas within the Frontline range. One Frontline Plus application kills adult fleas on cats and prevents new adults from emerging. It does this by stopping the development of eggs, larvae and pupae so helps to prohibit infestations in the home. Frontline Plus is also suitable for the prevention and treatment of ticks and biting lice infestations, providing excellent overall protection for your cat.
How does Frontline Plus for cats work?
The combination of the two active ingredients Fipronil and S-methoprene, targets all the stages within the flea life cycle including pupae, egg and flea stage making it a highly effective treatment. After the spot-on application is administered, the ingredients spread over the surface of your cats’ fur and sebaceous glands killing fleas within 24 hours and ticks within 48 hours. The fleas do not need to bite your cat to be destroyed.
Fipronil is the ingredient that affects adult fleas and ticks. It works by affecting the central nervous system of the flea, creating irregular movements prior to death. At this stage fleas may become more visible, losing their instinct to hide and appearing to ‘dance’.
S-Methoprene works by inhibiting the development of immature insects, mimicking juvenile hormones and causing impaired development and death of the immature flea. It also prevents the contamination of the treated pet’s environment.
With these two active ingredients, Frontline Plus is one of the leading cat flea treatments on the market. Regular monthly flea treatment application ensures that your cat and home remain free of fleas.
