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 Flea Control has been formulated for use on puppies and kittens from eight weeks of age and is safe for use on pregnant and lactating animals. It is a water-resistant flea medication, so it continues to kill fleas even after shampooing, swimming, rain or exposure to sunlight.

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.
If swallowed call a poison control center or doctor immediately for treatment advice. For hazards to domestic animals the 24 hour assistance line within the U.S.A. is 1-800-660-1842.

Customer ReviewsFrontline Plus
No flees, no tics, no problems
Maxx has been using you Frontline Plus for years and has been tic and flee free for all of his adult life. Thanks for taking the worry out of walking him in open areas with flee and tic problems.

I trust Frontline Plus to keep my dog flea and tick free. I live in an area where they are prevalent, but with this on haven't had an issue. My only suggestion is that it could be easier to get out of the container. I have large wiggly dog and it takes several squeezes to get all of the liquid out. Does the trick though.

I used to work at a dog ranch where we encountered many different parasites, the worst of which were ticks. We could tell which dogs were using Frontline Plus when they arrived because those were the dogs that never had issues with fleas or ticks. Because of that experience, I now use it on my own dogs and they have never had any issues with external parasites, despite being double-coated breeds.

Products have been great and have never had a problem with the service or delivery. I will continue using Pet Shed in the future. Thanks Again. Pete
