Fleas: A Health Risk
Fleas not only cause pets great misery, they can also cause Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) and other skin problems. Fleas can transmit tapeworm and the bacterium that causes 'cat scratch disease'.
They can be a nightmare to get rid of once they've made themselves at home in your home.
Preventing & Controlling Ticks:
Ticks are a source of diseases including Biliary fever (Babesiosis) and Tick bite fever (Ehrlichiosis). There is usually a window period between the time that the tick attaches to the pet and when the diseases are transmitted. This window period varies according to the species of tick, the disease in question as well as the stage of the tick. Pets can also develop ulcers and inflammatory granulomas at the point of attachment. It is therfore adivisable to check your pets daily for ticks and remove immediately as well as maintain monthly application of a long-lasting tick control product such as FRONTLINE Plus.
FRONTLINE Plus will control ticks for up to 4 weeks with a single application.
One single application of FRONTLINE Plus protects your pet against fleas and ticks for several weeks. It has 2 active ingredients: one kills ticks and adult fleas on your pet, and the other prevents the development of flea eggs and larvae that could become scattered around your home, breaking the flea life cycle. This 2-in-1 approach is known as Integrated Flea Control (IFC).
The flea life cycle
The adult flea makes itself at home on your dog or cat, and the female lays up to 50 eggs a day for the approximately 100 days it lives.
These eggs get deposited everywhere your pet goes....all around your home. Larvae emerge from the eggs and hide in nooks and crannies in furniture and carpets. Larvae chnage into pupae which are invisible to the naked eye. It can be up to about 12 months before the adult fleas emerge from these pupae, which are spread throughout your home.
Simply using FRONTLINE Plus regularly on your pets BREAKS the flea life cycle, preventing those eggs and larvae from developing, and killing the adult fleas. With only 5% of fleas on your pet (adult fleas), and 95% in the egg, larva and pupae stages around your home.
When you snap open a pipette and apply the contents to the back of your pet's neck, the FRONTLINE Plus migrates all over your pet's body by means of a process called translocation. The oily (sebaceous) glands in your pet's skin act as a reservoir from which the products is slowly and continuously released via the hair follicles.
Frontline Plus can be used on puppies and kittens form 8 weeks of age, as well as on pregnant and lactating queens and bitches.
Frontline Plus is effective after normal bathing and shampooing. For best results, it's better not to bath your pet for three days before or after applying Frontline Plus. Ensure that your pet's coat is 100% dry before applying the product. Certain medicated shampoos may affect the product's duration of efficacy. If you are unsure about this, talk to your vet.
