Frontline Spot On is a long-lasting treatment and will protect your pet from fleas, ticks and lice.
Bathing or water immersion of dogs 48 hours after application will not stop Frontline Spot-On working effectively. Apply at 6 weekly intervals if the pet is shampooed weekly with a chlorhexidine-based shampoo and 5 weekly if emolient shampoos are used.
Before treating your cat, please make sure that you're familiar with the following points about using Frontline Spot On:
- Frontline Spot On is for the treatment of cats and dogs only and for external use only
- Veterinary advice should be sought prior to using Frontline Spot On if there is any sign of skin irritation or if the pet is unwell

All year round
Some people think that fleas, ticks and lice are just a problem in the summer. They’re wrong. Your pet needs to be protected regularly whatever the season or it will be susceptible to the irritation – and more serious problems – that these bugs can bring.
Spring: As the weather warms up, fleas and ticks start to breed quicker and quicker.
Summer: The summer months are when your pet is at the most risk. The temperature and humidity can quickly lead to huge infestations and massive problems for your pet and your family.
Autumn:This is the time of year when it’s particularly important to guard against tick infestations and the re-emergence of fleas – especially when you turn on the central heating.
Winter: It might be cold outside but your warm home makes an ideal breeding ground for fleas – the risk to your pet never goes away.
