Frontline was previously only available through vets, however now it is possible to buy your supplies online. In order to ensure your dog or cats stays protective you will need to apply the treatment on a regular basis. One sachet will last for up to five weeks on cats and 2 months on dogs, so you get great value for money. The best news is unlike many off the shelf free protection products Frontline actually works.
Fleas and the Trouble They Cause
Fleas suck the blood from your pets and cause a lot of irritation. If you leave your pet ridden with fleas they can very quickly start to suffer with constant itching and scratching. This can lead to open sores on the animal’s body and hair loss. Flea allergies are also common which is caused by the saliva of the fleas which is an allergen, leading to dermatological problems. Fleas can also cause tapeworm infestations and even anaemia in kittens and puppies. Furthermore once your animals have fleas they can quickly infest your house leading to family members suffering from bites and expensive treatments on the soft furnishings and carpets in the home. Within just one day a female flea will lay up to 50 eggs, meaning in 21 days one flea can turn into 1000.
What to do if Your Pets are Infested
As soon as you suspect your pet has fleas it is important to treat them as soon as possible. Frontline can be applied to cats and dogs and you will need to make sure all of the animals in the home are treated. Run the vacuum all over the house in order to pick up any eggs, larvae and pupae that are in the carpet fibres. As soon as the eggs feel the warmth of a potential host they will hatch and climb on board, so vacuuming is a must as is washing the pets bedding at 60 degrees.
You will need to ensure you buy the right size for the weight of your dog or cat. The packaging is very clear so weigh your pet and look for the box which has the weight within its range. Frontline is very easy to use:
- Snap open the pipette at the top of the neck whilst holding it upright
- Hold apart the hair on your pets back, between the shoulder blades
- Hold the pipette onto the skin, ensuring all of the contents are on the skin and not the hair
Repeat the process up to every five to eight weeks depending on your pet and keep your animals and your home free from flea infestations. Save money and purchase your Frontline online today.
