Information about Frontline Plus
Frontline Plus provides protection against fleas and ticks, and contains a special ingredient to kill flea eggs and larvae. By stopping the development of new fleas, Frontline Plus provides the most complete flea and tick protection available. Frontline Plus kills 100% of fleas and ticks within 48 hours, including many ticks that transmit dangerous diseases that can affect other pets and humans.

Frontline Plus has been approved for sale in Australia by the APVMA. The US equivalent of this product has been approved for sale by the EPA.
Both the Australian and US products contain the same active ingredients, Fipronil & (S)-Methoprene.
However, the products sold by Pet Shed are sold in Australian packaging which has not been approved for sale in the US. As a consequence, the Australian packaging does not have EPA approval and the sale and purchase of products in the Australian packaging may be illegal in the US.

Customer ReviewsFrontline Plus
Great protection for your pets!
I won't use anything else for my dogs. Even my vet recommends Frontline Plus. My dogs have never had problems with fleas or ticks with the use of Frontline Plus. Such a great product.

I have used Frontline Plus for fleas and ticks for years, and have always been pleased with it's performance. But as a retiree was concerned about cost. I found Pet Shed and their great pricing. My biggest concern was that these might be 'seconds' or expired meds. I found much to my appreciation that these are first quality meds with normal expiration dates. thank you Pet Shed!!

If you are unsure of which flea and tic product to use, try Frontline Plus. You and your dog won't be disappointed. We have tried other products, but none work as well as Frontline. Well worth the premium price. Follow directions and you won't find your dog scratching or bothered by pests. I've noticed over the years that Pet Shed generally has the best price too. I do wish they offered more free shipping opportunities though :)

You can count on this one
We've tried other brands, but my dog and cat just hate them. Frontline Plus doesn't seem to bother them. And it's very effective. Once we accidentally skipped about 2 months, thinking the other had applied the dose. My dog ended up with a bad case of fleas. After applying Frontline Plus all the fleas were gone in less than 2 days. And none were ever spotted again. And Pet Shed has the best prices and reliable shipping I could find, bar none.

Best on the market
We tried every flea product sold on the shelves at Petsmart when we first introduced an ASPCA dog into a house with two flea-less house cats. The dog was flea-ridden and absolutely nothing worked for months--until FRONTLINE. Do not be fooled by any other product! This is the only stuff that truly performs as advertised, and really works. We haven't had a flea or tick (no live ones, anyway) in years.
