Function

Effects

The ingredients in Frontline are safe when used bi-monthly for fleas, posing almost no risk of side effects (see Reference 3).

Considerations

The active ingredients in Frontline are proven to be of low to moderate toxicity, but they are considered safe by the World Health Organization, or WHO (see References 2 and 4). According to the WHO, a pet consuming an entire case of fipronyl would suffer no adverse effects (see Reference 3).

Benefits

Frontline kills 100 per cent of fleas and ticks within 18 to 48 hours of application (see Reference 1).

Warning

Although the active ingredients in Frontline are considered safe, imitation products might contain ingredients toxic to your pet (see Reference 3).
