Frontline generally stays active in your dog’s system for up to 30 days, starting from the day that it is applied. However, depending on the size and weight of your dog, this may be shorter or longer. Additionally, environmental factors such as water contact and exposure to sunlight also factor into how long Frontline will stay active in your pet’s system. For example, if a pet swims often, their flea and tick protection can be reduced sooner than expected due to dissipation of the product from water contact.
Also, different concentrations of Frontline products may last for varying amounts of time; for example:
Frontline Plus (with 9.8% fipronil) is effective against fleas and ticks for up to 30 days
Frontline Spot On (with 6% fipronil) is effective against fleas and ticks for up to 21 days

Introduction to Frontline
Frontline is a flea and tick control medication that’s been around for decades. It consists of two active ingredients in a topical application: Fipronil and (S)-methoprene. This combination is highly effective at killing fleas, ticks, and other parasites on your dog’s skin immediately after application.
How long does Frontline stay in a dog’s system? Generally, Frontline will remain effective on your pet for up to 30 days after it’s applied. However, this can vary due to factors like age or type of dog, body weight and coat density, environmental conditions, and the severity of infestation. It’s important to remember that Frontline will only be effective against the parasites currently on your pet at the time of application–it won’t prevent future infestations.
In conclusion, Frontline can become uneffective between one to thirty days after applying it to your dog’s coat but with regular applications you can help protect your pup from fleas and ticks year-round!
How long does it take to completely eliminate?
Frontline is considered to be a long-lasting flea and tick medication that typically view it now remains effective on your pet for 30 days. But, how long does it take to completely eliminate from the dog’s body? The answer depends on how quickly the dog metabolizes the beneficial compounds in the medicine.
Generally, most dogs will complete elimination of Frontline within 4-7 weeks after being administered. This includes all of its active ingredients, as well as any inactive components such as food coloring or preservatives. Of course, this timeframe can vary depending on the size and metabolic rate of the individual dog.
In conclusion, because Frontline is considered a long-lasting flea and tick medication, it can take up to 7 weeks for its contents to be eliminated from a dog’s system.
Factors affecting the length of time
The length of time that Frontline stays in a dog’s system will depend on a few factors. First, the dog’s weight and size are important because the amount of medication a dog can absorb is related to weight and size. Also, how frequently a dog is bathed and groomed affects the length of time it takes for Frontline stay in the system. For example, if you bathe your pet more often than recommended or use medicated shampoos, this can result in quicker breakdown of chemical compounds found in Frontline. In addition, environmental conditions such as extreme temperatures (cold or hot) will also decrease the effectiveness of frontline. Finally, health issues like flea allergies or parasites resistance can shorten the lifespan of Frontline treatment on your pet.
Different forms of Frontline
Frontline comes in several different forms, and the length of time it stays in a dog’s system depends on which form you use.
The most common type of Frontline is a topical/spot-on treatment applied to the skin. These treatments usually last for about one month. Other, newer forms of Frontline include chewables or oral tablets, injectable solutions, and shampoos. Frontline topicals are more effective than the other types because they have a longer duration of action, while injections may only offer protection for up to two weeks. Chewable tablets and shampoos protect your pet for up to one month.
No matter which form of Frontline you choose, make sure you follow package instructions carefully and contact your veterinarian if you are unsure how long the product will stay in your pet’s system.
Duration in blood system
The duration of Frontline’s active ingredient, fipronil, in the blood system of your dog can vary depending on its size and other factors. Generally speaking, small dogs (weighing up to 15 pounds) will have a slightly longer duration — with fipronil remaining in the bloodstream for about six weeks. Medium-sized dogs (15 to 40 pounds) will have a duration of four to five weeks, while large dogs (over 40 pounds) will typically last two to three weeks.
It’s important to keep in mind that this timeline may change based on environmental factors as well as your pup’s lifestyle. Additionally, it’s best practice to keep an eye out for any potential signs or symptoms of flea and tick infestations during the post-application period, even if months have passed since its initial application.
Duration in tissues, organs, skin and hair
Frontline is designed to stay in the body for up to three months. However, the exact amount of time that Frontline remains in the dog’s system will vary by individual, so it’s best to monitor your dog’s progress and adjust the dosage accordingly.
In general, Frontline will stay in the tissues, organs, skin and hair anywhere from 1-3 months. The three month duration is an average amount of time that it may take for Frontline to completely clear out of a dog’s system depending upon its metabolism rate. Some dogs may have higher rates of metabolism which could result in pest protection leaving their bodies faster while others could retain it longer. In addition, toxins and residues can accumulate within fat cells if there is additional exposure over a long period of time leading to increased effectiveness but with potential side effects as well.
