The best flea and tick treatment is prevention

Because of our warmer climate, it is always flea and tick season in Albuquerque and Los Lunas. Getting your pet treated for Fleas and Ticks is an important part of their annual care. It is best if you do preventative treatment for fleas and ticks, and this can easily be done with a simple monthly treatment. Frontline is Vetco’s preferred prevention and treatment for fleas and ticks.

Frontline Flea & Tick Treatment FAQ

How often do I need to treat my cat or dog for flea and tick?

Monthly is the best prevention to ensure your cat or dog is protected no matter what season or what time of year it is.

How old does my dog or cat need to be to start on Frontline Flea & Tick?

You can start treatment as soon as 8 weeks old.

How long does it take to work?

The flea and tick treatment will start working within 4 hours.

Do fleas or ticks have to bit my cat or dog for the treatment to work?

No, the fleas and ticks are killed through contact with the treatment on your cat or dogs coat.

Why am I seeing more fleas after applying the treatment?

As the fleas die they rise to the surface of your pet’s coats. Seeing more fleas means it is working.

How long after applying the treatment can my cat or dog take a bath or go for a swim?

You should wait 24 hours after the application. Then your cat or dog will be fine for getting in the water.

Can I use Frontline Flea & Tick Treatment on a pet other than a cat or dog?

No, Frontline Flea & Tick Treatment is specifically designed to use for cats and dogs. Also, their treatments are specific for cats and for dogs. You can only use the Frontline for cats on cats, and Frontline for dogs on dogs. Putting the incorrect Frontline on your pet can make them sick or even kill them. If you think you have put the wrong kind of Frontline on your pet, you need to take them to an emergency vet immediately. Vetco is not an emergency vet clinic.

Can I apply Frontline Flea & Tick more than once a month?

No, the treatment will work for 30 days, so do not reapply until the 30 days have passed.

Will one treatment kill all the fleas?

Possibly, often if your cat or dog has fleas it means your house has fleas. You may need to treat your do or cat for a few months to make sure that all the eggs have hatched and the new fleas have bee killed. Frontline does kill flea eggs but your house and furniture may have eggs as well.
