Frontline protects your dog and cat from flea infestations, ticks, mange and lice. It's useful in the prevention of flea allergy dermatitis, ideal for pets with sensitive skin. Frontline needs a monthly application and can be used on puppies and kittens as young as 8 weeks old. You don't need to quarantine your dog or cat after applying Frontline either, it's safe to use and easy to apply. Simply open one of the pipettes and part a small patch of fur from your dog's neck with your fingers, so you can access their skin. For best results, apply Frontline to the back of their neck, between their shoulderblades and get the serum as close to their skin as possible - if it's only sitting on their fur, it won't be as effective. If your dog loves the water, you can let them go for a swim 48 hours after applying Frontline.
