PetMeds® Frontline Top Spot Flea Control
|Frontline Top Spot is an easy to use one spot application that has been one of the most highly recommended products by veterinarians over the years. It kills all existing fleas within 24 hours of application, as well all stages of ticks and chewing lice. For the most part clients have found this product to work wonderfully for their pets. When this product does not work for clients, it is usually due to failure to treat the home environment of pets, where much of the flea life cycle still occurs.|
Common client concerns with this product include safety of use around homes with young children. This is usually not a problem as long as the product has completely dried. Other concerns include safety in young kittens and puppies. As long as kittens and puppies are healthy and over 8 weeks of age, Frontline Top Spot is usually safe to use. Side effects most commonly resolve around irritation at the sight of application of this product. This is usually only transient, and will resolve with supportive care.
Other less common side effects include digestive and/or neurological reactions, however, these are rare. It is important to note that although Frontline Top Spot kills fleas, it does not kill flea eggs and/or larvae, but it does prevent their development. For a more comprehensive flea control medication, there is Frontline Plus. Or if you are interested in other popular flea control products, see the 1-800-PetMeds Flea and Tick Comparison Chart.
