Dog Flea And Tick Facts

A dog's world can harbour a number of unwanted pests. No matter where you live, fleas, and sometimes ticks, are just waiting to make a moving feast out of your dogs and share your home! Fortunately there's FRONTLINE®, the only product of its kind that protects your dog and home against fleas and kills ticks.


FRONTLINE Spray kills adult fleas quickly, before they can lay eggs, breaking the flea life cycle.  FRONTLINE Plus offers an additional ingredient that also kills eggs and larvae for further peace of mind. FRONTLINE is also the leading flea control product that can give your dogs added protection against ticks.

FRONTLINE works like no other flea treatment, even in the wet. It moves quickly through the oils on your pet's skin and collects naturally in the hair follicles and oil producing glands. From this reservoir, it is constantly reapplied to the hair and skin, giving you long-lasting flea control.

A simple, regular, 2 monthly application of FRONTLINE Plus, applied as a few drops on the skin between the shoulders, is all you need to protect both your dog and your home against fleas. FRONTLINE is also available as a spray.

Available only from your vet clinic but you don't need to make an appointment or to take your pet.


The only tick found in New Zealand is the New Zealand cattle tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis). Dogs can sometimes pick up ticks by wandering through pasture grazed by cattle.

FRONTLINE kills ticks and prevents reinfestation in dogs and cats.
