Why might I see a tick on my treated pet?

Most tick treatments such as FRONTLINE Plus® and FRONTLINE® Spot On are not tick repellents therefore individual ticks may still attach to your pet. After treatment with FRONTLINE Plus® / FRONTLINE® Spot On ticks will be killed within 48 hours after exposure, before they are fully fed, thus helping to reduce the risk of disease transmission. FRONTLINE Tri-Act® FOR DOGS is a tick repellent which means ticks will climb onto your dog and then quickly climb off due to the exposure to the product. You may see some ticks on your treated dog during this time, or during the 6 hours it takes for the product to kill ticks. If you have any concerns, please contact our technical services team at petsUK@boehringer-ingelheim.com, or your veterinary surgeon.
