Frequently Asked Questions About Topical Solutions for Fleas & Ticks

What is the best topical flea and tick treatment?

The best treatment for your pet depends on multiple factors, including their temperament. Your veterinarian can help you choose the right flea and tick prevention option for your dog or cat.

How long does a typical flea and tick treatment last?

The longevity of flea and tick treatments can vary by product. Most topical treatments, such as FRONTLINE® Plus, remain effective for about a month, while some collars can provide protection for up to eight months. Oral treatments typically last for a month. Always consult the product instructions or your veterinarian for the most accurate information.

How do you apply topical flea and tick products?

It’s important to read the manufacturer’s instructions to properly apply the product. In general, it’s usually dispensed at the base of the neck or between the shoulder blades. Part the fur to expose the skin, then squeeze the contents of the treatment tube directly onto the skin. Allow the treatment to dry completely and keep other pets and children away during this time. After application, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Always monitor your pet for any signs of discomfort or allergic reactions. Contact your vet if you suspect there’s a problem.
