The problem with fleas in cats & dogs
Your pet's soft, warm fur is one of the reasons that you'll love cuddling them so much. It’s also why fleas find your pet hard to resist!
Dogs and cats have quite a high probability of coming into contact with these parasites at some point, but with a bit of know-how you can easily control and treat them.
Fleas live for around 7-14 days. But, it's not just a case of putting up with them in your home for a few weeks... Because fleas lay eggs...
Female fleas lay up to 40 eggs per day, which hatch into tiny larvea. These bury themselves into carpet, upholstery and bedding. The trouble with fleas is that their larvae can survive without a host (i.e. without being attached to your furry friend) for months. Get them in your home, and it could be months before they become a problem.
Frontline Plus Spot-On Flea Treatment
The most effective option is to prevent fleas from becoming a problem in the first place! Frontline Plus not only kills fleas - it also protects your pet against a future infestation.
In dogs, Frontline Plus protects your hound against re-infestation for up to 8 weeks, by inhibiting the development of flea eggs. With cats, it's 4 weeks.
So - by regularly treating your pet with Frontline Plus - you can protect both your pet - and your home - from the effects of a flea infestation!
