Waste of time and money.
All these retail products are feeble, veterinary products are far better and far less hassle in teh long run

Look at reviews on the 'Net for their dog and cat products and you will see what I mean!

Doesn't work, only products like frontline etc work

Do not buy this product! It nearly killed our lovely dog. It caused her to take several fits over two days and she is now on permanent medication to prevent the fits. The vet very quickly identified the problem as being Bob Martin Dog Spot On which she said was notorious for having very nasty side effects including fits. So, be warned and warn all of your friends too not to touch this stuff. Apparently the Frontline Spot On treatment does not suffer from these problems.

Stick to what the vets recommend Frontline or Effipro which I now use is the same contents but cheaper.

I personally would not use anything else on my pets!

If there's evidence to support that, they shouldn't be allowed to sell this stuff in supermarkets.

You can easily bleed to death from taking Aspirin, but you can buy them everywhere!

That's just a wee bit sensationalist nihcaj! You're not a journalist for the News of the World are you? ;)

What's sensationalist about it?

I personally know two people who have had emergency surgery with gastric perforation from Asprin.

All drugs have side effects; human or animal drugs.

From taking one aspirin? Fair enough, and I know fine well the point you are trying to make, but "easily bleed to death" just seemed a bit OTT.

One of the unfortunate side effects of aspirin is stomach bleeding and this can be very serious. Did you know that aspirin is toxic to cats?
Staying on topic though please think twice before using this on your dog. I thought that we'd lost our lovely collie because of Bob Martin Dog Spot On. Our vet said that in her opinion it shouldn't be on the market. Stick to the Frontline Spot On. I think some places sell it online which is cheaper than buying it from the vet.

Well one aspirin isn't a pain relieving dose, two or three are, and yes people have bled to death with those sorts of doses.

As it happens, one aspirin is enough to cause a severe asthmatic reaction ins some people too, my own mother for example!

They are a VERY useful drug though, but not without risk, remember they were withdrawn for use with under 12s some years back because of risk of a serious condition, yet when I was a kid they were doled out like sweets!

Cheers then, you learn something new every day, as I always thought that bleeding in the stomach was a side effect from taking aspirin over a period of time, didn't think it could happen from just taking it once.

That aside, my point is still, if there really is evidence that Bob Martin flea treatment is as vets have said "notorious for having very nasty side effects" "shouldn't be on the market", why is it on the market and listed as a "UK authorised veterinary medicinal product"? Those kinds of comments are a bit stronger than what doctors would say about aspirin are they not?

Mind you, if they REALLY think that, and if side effects are that common, then why is the BVA not reporting or making representations about it to the manufacturers and the licensing body?

The more effective veterinary products themselves have problems I know of in their own right - people use the dog version on cats and poisonings have happened - simply the doses are far different, bearing in mind cats self groom so much more, but that's associated with misuse, so not quite the same thing!

We used to use the cat one 2 years ago until they caught fleas whilst being treated with the product. That was an expensive vet bill to get program and the flea spray for the house. Some people might think they are getting a bargain buying cheaper flea treatments. But I think paying more for the piece of mind is worth it. You can buy the frontline products in most if not all pets at home stores.

Exactly. It seems strange when it's not just pet owners' general observations but actually vets saying these things that it isn't being reported or investigated.

Safe to say I'll just be swallowing the extra cost and playing it safe by using something like frontline anyway. Just one other expense to add to all the others when owning a pet!
