Frontline is a topical product that kills ticks within 48 hours of treatment and fleas within 12. It is effective for eliminating chewing lice and also helps to control sarcoptic mange infestations. The treatment works by spreading over the cat's body and collecting in the oil glands of the skin, so that it is dispersed by the natural oils. It can take up to 24 hours for this process to be completed, but it is then drawn up through the hair for the next 30 days. It takes between 23 to 36 hours for fleas to lay eggs once they are present on your cat. Research has shown that Frontline will kill the adult fleas in about 12 hours, before they can lay eggs.
Frontline is safe for use on pregnant and lactating cats and can be used on kittens as young as eight weeks. It has also been shown to have no reactions to systemic medications, so it can be used on cats who have been treated with other parasite applications after 24 hours have passed.
This product is highly effective and very easy to apply. Unlike some other products, Frontline kills ticks, fleas, and mites that come into contact with your cat's coat. They do not have to bite into the skin.
To use Frontline, simply remove the applicator from the packaging, hold it upright, and snap the tip away from your face and body. Place the tip on the skin between the shoulder blades, making sure to avoid superficial application the your cat's hair. Squeeze the applicator to empty the entire contents in one area of your cat's skin. Frontline must be used on dry skin, so it is recommended to not bathe your cat for 24 hours before or after application.
As long as Frontline is stored at room temperature in its original packaging, it will not expire.
If your cat has fleas that may cause dermatitis, or if there is a high risk of re-infestation, a monthly application may be necessary to control the parasites. A monthly application is recommended for control of chewing lice and ticks.

Frequency of Application
When used monthly, Frontline Top Spot for Dogs completely controls fleas, tick, and chewing lice infestations. Research demonstrates that Frontline kills adult fleas for up to six weeks. Frontline kills ticks for at least one month. A once monthly application is recommended where tick control is needed. Although frontline can control fleas for up to six weeks, if there is a high risk of reinfestation or if the pet has fleas which may cause allergy dermatitis, a once monthly application may be needed.
Frontline remains effective even after bathing, water immersion, or exposure to sunlight. Avoid contact with treated area until dry. Do not reapply Frontline for 30 days.

Eliminated our flea problem
I love Frontline. I tried other knock-offs (although it sounds like there are some promising products coming out that are directly comparable to Frontline), but nothing else has worked. My dogs are outside a lot, and we do a lot of camping all summer, so we need something we can rely on. I hate giving flea baths because it's so hard on their skin, but I haven't given a single one since we started using Frontline.
