- It also takes care of ticks and the diseases spread by it. Most common problems like the Lyme diseases can be curbed at the initial stage itself.
- Frontline contains chemicals that adversely affect the growth in fleas. Major chemicals involve fipronil and methoprene. The former mixes with the glands that secret oil and is thus spread throughout the pet’s body. It continues to be released even at a later time thus getting rid of any fleas still alive in the pet’s fur. The latter restricts the growth of flea eggs, pupae or larvae and they cannot grow any further and as a result they are killed. Both the chemicals have been continuously tested and have shown no major side effects.
- It is being made taking into consideration the age, size and breed of your pet and can be used in the pet’s as young as 8 weeks. Even the pregnant, lactating or breeding pets can it be used upon.
