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.

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
I have always ordered the 6 pack of Frontline plus for large dogs and will continue to do so. Very fast shipment. Reasonably priced. I have told many of my friends.

Freedom from pests
I live in an area that has fleas almost year-round. I have used Frontline plus for years now and it has never failed to keep my cats flea and tick free. I enjoy the ease of application and my cats don't even realize or react to its application, unlike oral meds.

We have had great success with this product for several years now. We live in an area that has a large bug/insect population. Our dogs used to go out and come back covered in ticks within a matter of minutes. We no longer have to worry about this. If ticks or fleas get on the dogs, they are dead and gone very quickly.

I use this on my 5.5 lb Pomeranian and it works great. She doesn't have any skin irritation from it and I don't notice any adverse effects. Fleas and ticks don't stick around.

Frontline Plus is a definite Plus
I've faithfully been using Frontline Plus since 2003. Parker, Gunther, Rosie, Emma and Ginger were raised on it and were flea and tick free their entire lives. It's easy to apply and doesn't have the insect smell that many flea and tick products have. We now have a Great Dane puppy and just ordered the first of many years to come Frontline Plus. We are very grateful for this wonderful product.
