    Description

    The Frontline formula has improved! Frontline Plus kills 98 to 100% of adult fleas within 24 hours of being administered and 48 within hours for ticks. It now also inhibits the development of fleas at the immature stages of the cycle (eggs, larvae and pupae) for up to 6 weeks after application. Frontline Plus is effective for around 4 weeks against fleas and ticks in cats and ferrets –- so it is recommended that it be reapplied after 4 weeks.

    Frontline Plus is a simple and effective method for treating and preventing fleas and ticks, as well as killing biting lice. Frontline Plus has two active ingredients, Fipronil and (S)-methoprene. The former is quickly absorbed into the oils of your pet’s skin and coat and within 24 hours is harmlessly dispersed throughout the body. The latter is an insect growth inhibitor that mimics the juvenile growth hormone of fleas, keeping the larvae from moulting and developing into more mature forms.

    Frontline is an easy to apply treatment using the spot on method. Just snap off the top of the pipette and apply around the shoulder blades of your pet, parting the coat so the skin is visible. Squeeze the pipette and empty its contents on one or two spots where your pet is unable to lick it off. Make sure that other pets aren’t tempted to groom each other after treatment. If ingested you may notice your pet salivating a little more than usual.

    Your pet should be at least 8 weeks old and 1Kg before being given Frontline Plus. Kittens should be at least eight weeks old and weigh at least 1Kg. Safe to use on breeding, pregnant or lactating pets. Not to be used in rabbits.

    Contra-indications
    In the absence of available data, the product should not be used on kittens less than 8 weeks old and/or weighing less than 1 kg. The product should not be used on ferrets less than 6 months old.
    Do not use on sick (e.g. systemic diseases, fever) or convalescent animals.
    Do not use in rabbits, as adverse reactions with even mortality could occur. In absence of studies, the use of the product is not recommended in non-target species.
    Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to the active substances or to any of the excipients.
     
    Special warnings for each target species
    Avoid the contact with the animal’s eyes. When treating infestations of parasites, all in-contact animals should be treated with an appropriate product at the same time.
     
    Special precautions for use in animals
    It is important to make sure that the product is applied to an area where the animal cannot lick it off and to make sure that animals do not lick each other following treatment. No data on the effect of bathing/shampooing on the efficacy of the product in cats and ferrets are available. However, based on information available for dogs shampooed as from 2 days after application of the product, it is not recommended to bath animals within 2 days after application of the product.
    There may be an attachment of single ticks. For this reason a transmission of infectious diseases cannot be completely excluded if conditions are unfavourable.
    Fleas from pets often infest the animal's basket, bedding and regular resting areas such as carpets and soft furnishings which should be treated, in case of massive infestation and at the beginning of the control measures, with a suitable insecticide and vacuumed regularly.
    The potential toxicity of the product for kittens of less than 8 weeks of age in contact with a treated queen is not documented. Special care should be taken in this case.
    Animals should be weighed accurately prior to treatment.
     
    Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the product to animals
    Keep pipettes in original packaging until ready to use.
    This product can cause mucous membrane, skin and eye irritation. Therefore, contact of the product with mouth, skin and eyes should be avoided.
    If the product is accidentally swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet to the physician.
    People with a known hypersensitivity (allergy) to insecticides or alcohol should avoid contact with the product. Avoid contents coming into contact with the fingers. If this occurs, wash hands with soap and water.
    After accidental exposure the eye should be rinsed carefully with pure water.
    Wash hands after use.
    Treated animals should not be handled until the application site is dry, and children should not be allowed to play with treated animals until the application site is dry. It is therefore recommended that animals are not treated during the day, but should be treated during the early evening, and that recently treated animals are not allowed to sleep with owners, especially children.
    Do not smoke, drink or eat during application.
     
    Adverse reactions
    Do not overdose.
    Among the very rare suspected adverse reactions, transient skin reactions on the application site (scaling, local hair loss, itching, redness) and general itching or hair loss have been reported after use. Excessive salivation, reversible nervous signs (increased sensitivity to stimulation, depression, other nervous signs) or vomiting have also been observed after use. If licking occurs, a brief period of excessive salivation may be observed due mainly to the nature of the carrier.
    The frequency of adverse reactions is defined using the following convention:
    - very common (more than 1 in 10 animals treated displaying adverse reaction(s))
    - common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals treated)
    - uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals treated)
    - rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals treated)
    - very rare (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals treated, including isolated reports).

    Pharmacological particulars
    Pharmacotherapeutic group: Ectoparasiticides for topical use incl. insecticides QP53. The product is an insecticidal and acaricidal solution for topical use, containing an association of an adulticidal active ingredient, fipronil, in combination with an ovicidal and larvicidal active ingredient, (S)-methoprene.
     
    Pharmacodynamic properties
    Fipronil is an insecticide and acaricide belonging to the phenylpyrazole family. It acts by interacting with ligand-gated chloride channels, in particular those gated by the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), thereby blocking pre- and post-synaptic transfer of chloride ions across cell membranes. This results in uncontrolled activity of the central nervous system and death of insects or acarines. Fipronil kills fleas within 24 hours, ticks (Dermacentor variabilis, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Ixodes scapularis, Ixodes ricinus, Haemaphysalis longicornis, Haemaphysalis flava, Haemaphysalis campanulata) and lice within 48 hours post-exposure.
    (S)-Methoprene is an insect growth regulator (IGR) of the class of compounds known as juvenile hormone analogues that inhibit the development of immature stages of insects. This compound mimics the action of juvenile hormone and causes impaired development and death of the developing stages of fleas. The on-animal ovicidal activity of (S)-methoprene results from either direct penetration of the eggshell of newly laid eggs or from absorption through the cuticle of the adult fleas. (S)-methoprene is also effective in preventing flea larvae and pupae from developing, which prevents contamination of the environment of treated animals with the immature stages of fleas.
