When you apply FRONTLINE, fipronil, the active ingredient, is stored in the oil glands under your pet’s skin. It is then distributed continuously to the skin and hair of your pet through the hair follicles.
This way, FRONTLINE Plus:
- offers continuous protection for an entire month
- is waterproof even as your dog swims
- breaks the flea and tick life cycle
