Fleas and ticks are so persistent that no matter how many times you kick them out of your house, they are bound to make a comeback. Moreover, they not only infect your furry pal but also leave flea eggs all over your house. It is indeed a trying task to get rid of fleas and ticks. Though, if you’re using preventatives all year round, you’re less likely to face this issue.
Frontline is one such brand that has been consistently providing top quality treatments for dogs and cats. Being in the business for years, this company knows what its customers want and strive towards improving the efficacy of the treatments.

It eradicates existing fleas and also prevents further infestation. Moreover, it also controls sarcoptic mange. The active ingredient, Fipronil is an adulticide that causes paralysis in the nervous system of fleas and ticks and eventually kills them.
