FRONTLINE Spot On for dogs is an effective and easy-to-use treatment for fleas and ticks.
First used by vets, now available without a prescription. Once applied, the treatment will protect your dog from fleas, ticks and lice - use monthly all year round.
How it works
The medicine comes inside a pipette, which is then pressed against your dog’s skin at the back of the neck and then again 2 or 3 cm further back to ensure your dog doesn’t lick it off. The natural oils in your dog’s skin then carry the medicine around the rest of their body. Once this is done, your dog can resume all their normal activities (but should avoid swimming or bathing for 48 hours after application) and you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that the problem is taken care of.

When to use it
If your pet picks up any pests from long grass on walks or other animals, it’s best to act as quickly as possible before the problem develops any further – fleas can swiftly spread to the rest of your household. Fleas and ticks attach themselves to your dog’s skin and feed off their blood, causing a lot of irritation and discomfort.
If your dog is scratching more than usual or shaking their head often, it’s worth using a flea comb to see if you can find any. Fleas particularly like the warmth of your dog’s armpits, so check there first. It’s also important to inspect your dog regularly for ticks all year-round, but especially in the summer months. Ticks are larger so can often be spotted quite easily and they should be carefully and quickly removed, as they can carry fatal diseases. Use our O’Tom tick remover to safely and painlessly pull ticks of your dog’s fur.
