FRONTLINE Plus for Cats (19120-V)
Lost Effectiveness in My Area
I live in north central Texas. I used Frontline / Frontline Plus religiously for years and could not have been happier. Unfortunately, three years ago it totally quit killing fleas on my dogs. I'm sure they had developed resistance as they were covered far worse than I had ever seen. It never had been effective on ticks, so I (reluctantly) switched to Advantix. Occasionally, I will use Comfortis just for fleas if it is not tick season.
Never ever a Flea or Tick with several dogs
We raise Shih Tzu in our home. We have been using Frontline Plus for several years, and have never ever seen a single flea or tick on any of our pets. Thank you Frontline (and Revival).
Could not ask for a better transaction. Very fast shipping.
Read and follow the directions. You have to understand how a flea infestation works.
Here's the deal, Frontline works in situations with indoor pets and is not a poison to your cats like so many of the other over the counter meds. I know a few vets and have had long discussions on the topic. They have told me to NEVER use the flea shampoos for one. They recommend keeping your cats indoors and using Frontline. I was like the people that don't understand how to work with it. It's still a great product but not the ultimate product - there is no such thing. If you have an indoor / outdoor animal - good luck with ANY product. Fleas are found in nature and the animal will of course continue to get re-infested. I have found yards where just walking around you get fleas on you and flea bites.
If you have indoor animals, it works wonderful. BUT you have to do some serious house cleaning. Fleas lay eggs that drop off animals around your home. You have to apply Frontline and then clean house. Clean their bedding, your furniture, anywhere they lay, etc. You then need to vacuum daily for the next 2-3 months while reapplying every 30 days. IF you do that the infestation will be gone in about 2-3 weeks but you need to keep it up to get the last of them because you will never clean up all the eggs.
Late this summer I purchased another flea repellent product. After I applied it, I started noticing ticks on my indoor/outdoor cats. Not fun to pull a tick off a cat. I started wondering why I never had this problem before....then I discovered that the other stuff I bought did not repel ticks!!! Immediately back to Frontline Plus....and NO MORE TICKS!!
