HOW TO APPLY AND HOW FRONTLINE® TRI-ACT WORKS?
FRONTLINE® TRI-ACT is a product only for use in dogs. Do not use on cats and rabbits.
You should weigh your dog and choose the appropriate pipette size.
It is safe to touch and hold the animal as soon as the application site of the product has dried. Do not bathe the dog within 24 hours of applying the product.
As protection against fleas, ticks and flying insects: application every 4 weeks on the dog.
To achieve maximum effectiveness with FRONTLINE® TRI-ACT, it is important to apply the product correctly.
The contents of the pipette should be applied directly to the dog's skin at two different points: at the base of the neck and between the shoulder blades.
You can bathe the animal up to two days before application. For the diffusion of the product to occur ideally the dog's skin must be dry when the product is applied.
Step 1: Hold the pipette upright and cut the tip with scissors.
Step 2: Pull the fur away from the base of the dog's neck.
Step 3: Place the pipette directly on the skin and tighten several times to apply about half the product.
Step 4: Repeat the same operation in the area between the shoulder blades until the pipette is completely empty.

FRONTLINE® TRI-ACT ACTION METHOD
FRONTLINE® TRI-ACT has a topical, non-systemic mechanism of action, which means that it kills the insects by contact and not through the dog's circulatory system.
From the point where the product is applied, the FRONTLINE® TRI-ACT spreads over the entire surface of the animal.
FRONTLINE® TRI-ACT is distributed by diffusion through the lipid-rich layers of the epidermis.
Thanks to the specific excipients and lipophilic properties of Fipronil and Permethrin, the two active ingredients of the product spread throughout the surface of the animal's skin until it covers the entire body in about 24 hours.
The active ingredients reach concentrate in the sebaceous glands, which become a reservoir of these substances.
Over several weeks, the fat with the two active ingredients is released continuously from the sebaceous glands, covering the animal's fur and skin.
This unique diffusion and storage mechanism allows the product to remain effective over a long period of time and also explains why the protection afforded by antiparasitic treatment is unaffected when it rains or if the animal is shampooed.
