How does Frontline Gold for Cats and Kittens work?
FRONTLINE® Gold for Cats contains fipronil, which kills adult fleas and all biting stages of ticks, and the insect growth regulators (S)-methoprene and pyriproxyfen, which kills flea eggs and larvae to help prevent future re-infestations. After FRONTLINE® Gold is applied, fipronil collects in the oils of the skin and hair follicles and continues to be released from hair follicles onto the skin and coat, resulting in activity against fleas, ticks and chewing lice.
Fipronil 9.80% (S)-methoprene 11.80% Pyriproxyfen 0.25%
