Ultimate Guide to Frontline Gold for Dogs

Meet the Dog Flea and Tick Preventative: Frontline Gold for Dogs!

Frontline Gold for Dogs is the veterinarian-recommended FDA-approved dog medication that guards your dog against adult fleas and ticks, flea larvae, and flea production. It is a monthly, topical solution that also prevents fatal Lyme disease. Frontline Gold for Dogs ensures that the pup is in the happiest and healthiest condition.

How does Frontline Gold for Dogs work?

Frontline Gold for Dogs is a medication with three active ingredients - Fipronil, (S)-methoprene, and Pyriproxyfen. Together, these active ingredients kill adult flea and ticks and prevent a healthy flea life cycle.

Fipronil is a broad-spectrum insecticide that eliminates adult fleas and ticks. This drug blocks the major neurotransmitter of the insect's cell chemistry that causes fatal contamination to the insect's nerves and muscles.

(S)-Methoprene is an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) with an amber, fruity odor that attracts insects. Though it is considered an insecticide, (S)-Methoprene actually doesn't kill insects but interferes with the flea life cycle and prevents larvae from reaching adulthood or reproduction.

Pyriproxyfen is also an IGR that prevents proper flea hatching and the healthy growth of flea larvae. It prevents the development of the flea's exoskeleton within flea eggs so that they die within a few seconds after hatching.

How is Frontline Gold for Dogs administered?

Frontline Gold for Dogs is administered topically once-a-month and protects your dog for the next 30 days. Apply the Frontline Gold for Dogs solution directly onto the dog's skin (not the hair) by parting the hair between their shoulder blades. Wait for 24 hours to properly dry on the dog's skin before bathing, or swimming, in order to work for 30 days. Make sure that you purchase the correct box with the correct dosage depending on your dog's body weight. See the dosage chart below:

Weight Color Dosage (per applicator)
5 - 22 lbs. Orange 0.67 mL
23 - 44 lbs. Blue 1.34 mL
45 - 88 lbs. Purple 2.68 mL
89 - 132 lbs. Red 4.02 mL

What's the Difference Between Frontline Plus and Frontline Gold?
Answer

Despite coming from the same manufacturer, Frontline, the Plus, and the Gold have some notable differences. Firstly, there is a difference in the sizes of the applicator tubes. The Plus provides long tubes containing the medication. Gold, on the other hand, provides much shorter tubes. That makes the Gold applicator easier to use. Secondly, Fipronil and (S)-Methoprene are two chemicals used as active ingredients in both Frontline Gold as well as Plus. However, Gold has another key ingredient โ€“ Pyriproxyfen. While the two common chemicals can kill adult fleas, the Pyriproxyfen targets flea eggs and larvae. So while Frontline Plus is effective against Fleas, the Gold can deal with the eggs and larvae as well.

Is Frontline Gold Safe for Dogs?
Answer

Yes, Frontline Gold is safe for dogs. There are three key ingredients in Frontline Gold, one of which is fipronil. This chemical component of Frontline Gold targets adult fleas. Fipronil is a toxic material, which is why it may seem concerning to many that it is being used in this dog medication. However, rest assured that Frontline Gold is safe. The toxicity is maintained at a safe level. This will not lead to any harm on dogs with healthy skin. However, you have to be careful while using Frontline Gold on dogs with unhealthy, sensitive, or damaged skin. In these cases, the toxicity might lead to health problems. It will be best to consult your vet before applying Frontline Gold on these dogs. Also, maintain all precautions while applying. Use it on dogs that are at least 8 weeks or older.

How Quickly Does Frontline Gold Work?
Answer

Frontline Gold starts work instantaneously. After just 30 minutes of application, it starts killing fleas on your dog. Within 12 hours, Frontline Gold will have killed all the adult fleas. And within 48 hours of application, it will have killed all the ticks and lice. This medication is very effective and deadly against fleas, ticks, as well as lice.

Does Frontline Gold Require A Prescription?
Answer

Yes, Frontline Gold requires a prescription. Some websites may claim that you can buy Frontline Gold without any prescription. However, that is false. This medication can only be purchased after it is recommended by a licensed professional. The guideline is provided by the FDA and is to be followed accordingly.

Does Frontline Have Side Effects On Dogs?
Answer

Yes, like most dog or pet medication, Frontline has side effects too. Some of the common side effects that using Frontline can have include skin irritation, reddening of the skin, continuous scratching, diarrhea, and vomiting. Consult your veterinarian if you notice these or any other side effects.

Why Does My Dog Still Have Fleas After Frontline?
Answer

Dogs and puppies might still have fleas and ticks after Frontline treatment probably because they caught them from someplace else. While Frontline Gold helps kill adult fleas, and can effectively get rid of flea eggs and larvae, it cannot keep them away from your pet forever. Flea infestations can always return. Your dog may still have fleas or ticks even after receiving medication because they caught them from other dogs or animals, or perhaps from another flea infestation inside the house. To effectively deal with fleas, it is best to check for infestations twice every week. Shampoo baths are a must for your dog. Regular and thorough washing can help control the flea situation to a great extent.

Do Fleas Jump Off After Treatment?
Answer

Fleas are killed within 12 hours of Frontline Gold treatment. Frontline Gold is very effective when it comes to killing fleas. The medication starts taking effect just 30 minutes after you apply it. It can kill almost all adult fleas within 12 hours of application. 48 hours after application, it will have killed all the ticks and lice as well.

Do Fleas Fall Off After Frontline?
Answer

Fleas die after you apply Frontline. Thanks to its active ingredients, Frontline Gold manages to kill all adult fleas within 12 hours of application.

How Often Can You Apply Frontline Gold?
Answer

You can apply Frontline Gold once every month. To apply the Frontline Gold, you must part the dogโ€™s hair between its shoulder blades. Then, you simply place the applicatorโ€™s tip on the exposed skin and release the contents of the small tube on the exposed skin. Apply similarly along the dogโ€™s back, and the base of the tail. Applying on the hair of the dog will do no good. So you must expose the skin by parting the hair sideways.

Frontline Gold contains 3 active ingredients, fipronil to take our adult fleas and ticks, (S)-methoprene and pyriproxyfen to kill the next generation of flea eggs and larvae before the can develop into adult fleas.

Side effects may include skin irritation such as redness, scratching or other signs of discomfort. Gastrointestinal signs such as vomiting or diarrhea have also been reported. If these or other side effects occur, please consult with your veterinarian.

Frontline Gold should be administered once a month. To apply the medication, open the pouch by holding it upright and twist off the cap, holding it away from your face and body. Part the hair between your dog shoulder blades, placing the tip of the applicator on the exposed skin and squeezing out the entire contents of the tube. Do not simply apply to the hair.
