Rated 3 out of 5 What's happening?
I've been using Frontline on my 7 dogs for the past 5 years & have been very pleased with it, but am now beginning to have reservations about it. After applying it ,my dogs are still scratching and I've found a couple of fleas on them. We live in the country and are surrounded by woods and now i'm concerned that Frontline will be ineffective on the ticks too. I'm beginning to wonder if it's possibe that my dogs have built an immunity to it. I'll call the vet Monday and inquire about it and if possible will post another review at this site to let others know the outcome.

Rated 2 out of 5 Stopped working!!!
I have been using Frontline on my dogs for a few years but lately it doesn't seem to be working. I applied it a couple days ago and my dogs are scratching really bad. I won't be using it anymore. I will find something else thast works better.

Rated 5 out of 5 Works here in Florida.
all my vets wherever we lived (MI and FL) recommended Frontline. We had a Sheltie and now a Bichon. Different types of fur, and we live in a somewhat rural area.. In FL due to our mild weather all year, fleas and ticks don't die off as they would up north, so we use Frontline all year. It works well for our dog and that makes us pleased with the product.

Rated 2 out of 5 Disappointed
I have used Frontline Plus for a year on my 2 cats and this is my puppy's first summer. My puppy has had 7 frontline doses and I have been pulling fleas and TICKS off of her. I am heartbroken since I was so impressed with Frontline and have recommended FRontline Plus to EVERYONE despite their recommendations of switiching.
I will no longer trust. I am unsure if fleas and ticks have built an immunity (if this could happen) but will not try again. I have swithched to K9 advantage for my puppy and bio-spot for my cats. Wish me luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 Never had a problem...
We have used Frontline on our dogs for many years now and are very happy with the product. Our dogs never have fleas or ticks. We even apply it not monthly but every other month to save money and still no problem at all. We are clean freaks and would hate to see a flea or tick. Frontline is a super product.

Rated 5 out of 5 Frontline Plus is a Plus!
We've had two miniature schnauzers and used Frontline Plus on them. My dog is leash walked and never has had fleas, though schnauzers are prone to dry skin. My vet gave me a shampoo with chlorhexidine Gluconate 4% and it resolved the skin problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 Works great
I've used Frontline Plus on both of my dogs as long as I've had them and had no fleas or ticks (beagle 6 years & maltese 2 years). I don't like that it leaves an oily film on their fur, but it brushes out after a few days if I don't bathe them by then.

Rated 5 out of 5 no problems
We live in an area w/many fleas, and we never have a problem with Frontline. Our dogs even swim in the lake, and get baths every other week, and the effectiveness is not diminished. I think it's a good idea to apply it, then not bathe them for 3 days afterwards. We typically only have to use it every other month, and apply it every 3rd month in the winter. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 This stuff is GREAT!!!
At first, I was skeptical, but boy am I glad I tried it. Before we got Frontline Plus, our 3 dogs were absolutely miserable because of the fleas. They are inside dogs but go outside everyday to use the bathroom so they have plenty of exposure to fleas. Now that I have applied Frontline Plus, the only fleas I have found on my dogs were dead. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who doesnt want to see their dogs miserable with nasty fleas :D

Rated 2 out of 5 Changed? Immune?
I don't know what's happened here. I have used Frontline Plus for years on both cats and dogs. Now the last few months seems to prove ineffective. This month when I applied it, the dogs had relief for a couple of days. Two weeks into the dose they are so infested. I've had to resort to combing 3,4,5 times a day as well as weekly flea baths to bring relief to my pups. I'll be looking into other products but with 6 pets, I hope I don't need to do much experimenting.

Rated 5 out of 5 Very Pleased
I have been using frontline for as long as I can remember on my dogs and cats, and my parents have always used it on their collies. I'm a serious hiker and my dogs go with me on every outing. I've never once had a problem with fleas or ticks on any of them. I wouldn't trust anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 Works just fine for us
Have been using this on our dog for almost two years now (in Washington state and New York state). The only time he ever got a tick was when we moved to New York and lapsed on his treatment for about three months. Other than that we've had no problems. It blends itself into his skin and fur within 24 hours and we have NEVER had a problem with fleas.

Rated 5 out of 5 Front line Plus Works!!
I live in a wooded area in PA. Our area is infested with the lime diease ticks. My last scotty died of lime diease which we were using another expensive brand which did not work.. The Frontline plus is great!! I have no problems with any ticks on Logan my scotty pup. Some scottys are sensitve to certain products this is easy and he has no side effects. Thank you Front Line Plus!!

Rated 5 out of 5 The Only One
I have tried everything and the ONLY thing that works on all my dogs is Frontline Plus. The ticks around here seem to be impervious to any other spot-on treatment including K-9 Advantix. Frontline Plus kills them dead. And it even stays on my swim-crazy labs for the full month.

Rated 5 out of 5 So far...so good..no problems
It does everything it is supposed to. My 100 pound black lab has done really well with it to this point. I haven't heard any vet or pet store badmouth the product in my area. We continue to use it.

Rated 2 out of 5 Doesn't work!
I just started using this product. The first month, it seemed to work but this month it's not working at all. I only put it on again about a week ago and my dogs are riddled with fleas.

Rated 2 out of 5 Will not buy again
It only worked okay for about 2 weeks. It's not worth the money. I will be using another brand.

We live in the Southeast in a wooded area. We have used Frontline Plus for YEARS without any issue. Our dog has NEVER had any fleas. We have found only a couple of ticks on her over the years, but she was never bitten.

Rated 1 out of 5 Doesn't work on dry skinned pets
We always used Advantage or K9 Advantix. Then we moved to another state and the vets here only carried Frontline. Well, it just didn't work at all on my dogs. Days after it was applied there were still fleas on them. I know how to apply it, I used to work at a vet's office. I did everything right. The product doesn't work.
I asked my vet and they said you need a pill to kill the initial fleas on the pet. What?! No. I said that Advantage and K9 Advantix worked fine. I switched vets and our new vet said that it was because of the type of skin the animals have. Frontline won't spread properly over the skin and thus won't work if your animal has the slightest dry skin. Well there you go.
Don't risk the money trying to figure out if your dog has oily enough skin for it to work. I switched back to Advantage and we are flea free.

Rated 1 out of 5 It used to work....
We used this product successfully on four dogs for years. We have noticed that it's effectiveness has decreased over the last year or so. I no longer recommend this product, nor I will I purchase it. So disappointing to spend that much money (for four dogs), and then the product doesn't work. I am then forced to buy additional products so that my pets don't suffer.

I have used this for years. Now it doesn't work anymore.During the first 3 days fleas were dying. Then they came back. I'm gonna try something else.

Rated 3 out of 5 My dog developed an allergie to Frontline.
The first year Frontline worked great. The 2nd year my dog developed dermatitis on his backside and tail. The vet said it was a reaction to Frontline and that many dogs develop this. She told me it would become a little bit worse every year because his sensitivity would increase a tiny bit with each dose. My dog is now 12 years old and the dermatitis this year has been so bad my vet put him on Prednesone. He was on Prednesone for about a month to try to heal him up. As long as he was on the Prednesone he was feeling fine, but he couldn't live on it forever and eventually was weaned off it. As he was weaned from the drug, the dermititis gradually returned. I am at my wits end to stop his itching. Fleas are terrible where we live and he MUST be on something. As I read some of the other posts here, I saw that there is another product or two I could use to replace Frontline. I never heard of them before, but will try them. Thanks to all for posting good info that the rest of us can use!

We have been using this product for years on all of our dogs-large and small-and we have never had a flea in the house or on our dogs. We live out in the country and the dogs have plenty of exposure to fleas and ticks but this product works very well for us!

Rated 2 out of 5 used to work....
Do not waste your money on it. Frontline was the first product I used years ago, and for years it worked great...Then, it became useless...I do not know the reason why, maybe they changed the ingredients. I used Advantix and Advantage, both worked great, then the last time I reordered, out of old habits, I mistakenly got Frontline: I might as well put water on my dog.....

Rated 4 out of 5 No Problems
We have used this product for years, never living in an area where ticks where were prevelant, just fleas. We moved to the mountains in Tennessee last year and in the fuss of moving forgot to put frontline on him. All of a sudden he was coming in with all kinds of ticks. We put the frontline plus on him and within 2 weeks he was clear. We haven't seen any ticks since. The product really works for us. Wouldn't use any other.

Rated 5 out of 5 Use on inside and outside pomeranians!
I highly recommend frontline plus for dogs. I use it on one inside and 3 outside dogs. When I take all three to be groomed for the summer, the groomers have never found a flea (dead or alive) on any of them. Great stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 A Satisfied Frontline User
I have been using Frontline on my dog, Cinnamon all her life, 8 years. She only got fleas one time when we went to a sandy area for a week. The Frontline killed the fleas but I did she the tracks were the fleas had been. I didn't know what they were but took here to the Vet. because she was scratching. He said that's what it was but the fleas were gone. Good stuff that Frontline.

Rated 3 out of 5 Maybe worth a try...?
We have used Frontline for our pets and have mixed results. Our little dog (a min-pin) and our cat seem to do fine and remain flea free. However, my bigger dog (boxer/shephard mix) starts getting fleas at about the 3 week mark. She is 63lbs so we get the 45-88lbs range, but for some reason, it doesn't last with her.
