Ultimate Guide to Frontline Gold For Cats

Meet the Cat's Pesky Problem Treatment: Frontline Gold For Cats!

Frontline Gold For Cats is a triple-action formula that kills adult fleas, flea eggs and larvae, and adult ticks! It is a monthly spot-on waterproof treatment that protects your cat for the next 30 days. From a new pet parent to a Frontline expert, Frontline Gold for Cats guarantees an easy-to-use and effective solution to your cat's pesky pest problem!

How does Frontline Gold For Cats work?

Frontline Gold For Cats contains three active ingredients - Fipronil, (S)-methoprene and Pyriproxyfen - that kill adult ticks and fleas at every step of their life cycle. Frontline Plus for Cats kills the parasites on contact by storing itself in the oil glands in their skin and hair follicles continuously for the next 30 days.

Active ingredient Fipronil is a phenylpyrazole insecticide that disrupts the adult flea's and tick's central nervous system by blocking certain channels that regulate cellular excitability and control insects' movement, feeding, and behavior. Fipronil causes hyperexcitement to the contaminated insect's nerves and muscles.

Active ingredients (S)-methoprene and Pyriproxyfen are insecticide chemicals that control and eliminate the next generation of hatching flea eggs and larvae before they can develop into adult breeding fleas.

Should I apply FRONTLINE® Gold for Dogs to ALL the dogs and FRONTLINE® Gold for Cats to ALL the cats in my household, even if they are indoor-only?
Answer

Absolutely. If you don’t treat every dog and cat, the untreated pets can continue to harbor fleas that will lay eggs, preventing the infestation from being cleared. Even if the dog or cat never goes outdoors, people may bring fleas into the home. 

How often should I apply FRONTLINE® Gold brand products to my pets? 
Answer

For continuous protection, apply an appropriate FRONTLINE® Gold brand product every 30 days as directed. Consistency is key

Can I bathe my pet while using FRONTLINE® Gold? 
Answer

Yes. FRONTLINE® Gold brand products remain effective after bathing or exposure to water. You may bathe your pet 48 hours after application. ONLY use a shampoo formulated for your pet and recommended by your veterinarian. 

Where do these new fleas come from? 
Answer

Numerous hosts (including feral cats, opossums, raccoons, and other wildlife species) leave behind flea eggs wherever they go, including your yard. These outdoor flea infestations are often the primary source of the fleas that your pets pick up. Outdoors, developing flea stages can be found in areas protected from sunlight, so some of their favorite places include: Sheds, Garages, Under porches or decks 

How long will a flea infestation in the home last? 
Answer

Flea eggs, larvae, and pupae in the environment continue to develop and emerge as new fleas (even after your pet has been treated with a flea control product). It can take weeks to months for this already established infestation to be controlled. 

Why do I still see fleas on my cat after applying FRONTLINE® Gold for Cats? 
Answer

There are two main reasons: Fleas can jump onto your cat at any time, and these are not killed instantly. FRONTLINE® Gold for Cats kills these newly emerged fleas before they can lay eggs.  FRONTLINE® Gold for Cats kills fleas by overstimulating the flea nervous system, and hyperexcited fleas may move to the top of the haircoat before they die. So, seeing fleas on top of the haircoat after applying FRONTLINE® Gold for Cats can be an indication that the product is working. 

How does FRONTLINE® Gold for Cats work? 
Answer

After FRONTLINE® Gold for Cats 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. 

What else can I do to reduce the flea population in my home? 
Answer

Regular use of an appropriate FRONTLINE® Gold brand product on your pet may reduce flea infestations in the home. For best results, use FRONTLINE® Gold brand products as part of a comprehensive flea treatment plan, which includes coordinated treatment of the home, yard and pet. Vacuum floors, carpets and furniture – especially in areas where an infested pet has spent a lot of time, because that is often where many flea eggs will be found. Wash pet bedding and other fabrics in hot water. 

Can Frontline Gold for Cats be used on multiple cats in a household?
Answer

Yes, it can. However, according to the manufacturer's instructions, one applicator should be used per cat, and the product should be applied to each cat individually. This means that if you have multiple cats in your household, you should use a separate applicator for each cat and apply the product to each cat individually. This is important for ensuring that each cat receives the appropriate dosage and coverage for their body size and weight.

How should Frontline Gold for Cats be stored?
Answer

Store Frontline Gold for Cats at room temperature, between 59°F and 77°F (15°C and 25°C), in the original container. It should be kept out of the reach of children and animals and away from heat, flame, and other ignition sources.

What is the next step if I accidentally miss a dose of Frontline Gold for Cats?
Answer

If you miss a dose of Frontline Gold for Cats, you should apply it as soon as you remember. You should disregard the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule if the time for the next dose is getting close.

Can Frontline Gold for Cats be used on other animals besides cats?
Answer

No, Frontline Gold for Cats shouldn't be applied to any other animals, not even humans. The dose and active components may not be suitable for use on other animals because it is specially designed for use on cats. Using Frontline Gold for Cats on animals other than cats can be dangerous and may result in serious harm to the animal.

How will I know if my cat has fleas or ticks?
Answer

If you suspect that your cat has fleas or ticks, there are certain symptoms to look out for. Fleas can be seen on your cat's skin or fur and can be distinguished by their little, swiftly moving dark dots. Additionally, you might detect little red bumps or scabs on your cat's skin or notice that they are biting or scratching their skin more frequently than usual. Ticks can be seen on your cat's skin and are often larger, especially around the ears, head, and neck. If you do discover a tick, make sure to completely remove it to prevent leaving any pieces behind.

Can Frontline Gold for Cats be used together with other flea and tick prevention methods?
Answer
