Introducing New Frontline Combo,
This new product not only provides all the benefits of Frontline, but now includes a new second active ingredient, (S)- methoprene, an insect growth regulator.
Frontline has always been very effective at killing adult fleas, ticks and lice on your pet, but as a pet owner you are also at risk of flea infestations in your home caused by immature stages of the flea life- cycle (eggs, larvae and pupae).
Frontline Combo is the only product currently available offering the two active ingredients, providing a 2-in-1 action in the fight against fleas in one spot on pipette. So when you treat your cat or dog with Frontline Combo you are not only killing the adult fleas but also preventing the development of the eggs, larvae and pupae that cause the infestations in your home.
Applied as a spot-on to the back of your pet's neck Frontline Combo spreads over the entire surface of your pet's body, collecting the 'oil glands' of the skin to achieve a reservoir effect. This keeps the level of the active ingredients on the body surface sufficient to provide flea control for the whole dosage interval. Frontline Combo has many benefits to offer;
