Fipronil is a phenylpyrazole insecticide that is used to control a wide variety of insects. It works by seeping into an insect’s cells and binding to their nerve endings, thus stopping the nervous system and paralyzing the insect. Fipronil also spreads across insects, making it an effective solution for treating infestations.
When Frontline dog applied properly, the solution seeps into the hair follicles and oil glands on your dog which fleas and ticks like to make home. Fipronil is extremely effective and is slowly released over the course of a whole month for complete protection.
(S)-Methoprene is an insect growth regulator that acts as an important juvenile hormone for a large number of insects. It functions by preventing pupa and larva from developing into adults, and forces them to remain in their juvenile form. By doing so, these insects are unable to reproduce and spread, eliminating future recurrences of infestation.
It is technically considered to be a biochemical pesticide since it does not directly kill insects with toxicity, but rather prevents them from maturing and reproducing.2″ “Caution/Warning?
Some animals may be sensitive or allergic to the ingredients in Frontline Plus, so take note and watch for possible symptoms or signs of allergic reactions. If your pet shows signs of itching, nausea, lethargy, restlessness, or trouble breathing, seek veterinary attention immediately.”
