Shame it's only 99p for cats and large/XXL dogs.....medium is £3.67. Still cheap but unfair.

I have 2 small dogs i've bought the large just use a few drops on each...:p

Never thought of that....doh!

Apparently, the EU has ordered that frontline water down the solution as it was too strong! That explains why it is rubbish and if the ingredients are the same as this, then I wonder if this product is as useless as frontline.

That's a relief - I thought it meant that the fleas were evolving, like how germs become immune to antibiotics...

nice find i think thats the cheapest i seen flea stuff lol

there is some evidence that these treatments are responsible for the decrease in the bee population - hence controls.

Stay well away from Bob Martin. There's the reason they sell it in poundland and it's not in a glass locked case at your vets.
Just have a google and see what comes up

Frontline is not effective against fleas anymore, Stronghold or Advantage / Advocate seem to be the ones which work nowadays. Cold.

Thanks OP, heat added

This is the same as frontline so if that doesn't work for you then this won't

Basic frontline works when u use a house hold flea spray, but frontline combo ( vet product) works fine, killing live fleas and sterilising eggs! All pets need to be treated for it to work ( I mean all cats and dogs that have access to your house!) advocate is a newer product on the market that does a lot more parasites than just fleas. Bob martins is very unsafe, it can kill pets!!! There is nothing wrong with frontline if used correctly! Never heard of this product, if it's not a pom-v or a pom-vps drug i would probably not waste my money on it!!!

Just followed link, made from a reputable drug company so seems a good deal!

Ahhhh frontline has stopped working on our cat & dog too, I've used a three pack on each in the last month, I'm on here to do my research into a different one!! Our cat is an outside cat on a night and god knows where he's going to keep picking them up! Will give these a try

medium oos?

Used code ORDER10 for 10% thanks. heat added

Good offer that's not in dispute. However the true value of the product I've found in my personal experience to be nil. I now swear by Advantage spot on! Try it - you won't be disappointed.

frontline or Bob Martins don't work on my cats, so if this is the same as frontline then for my cats this will be no good. I use Advocate for them nowadays.

Got the 10% off to so thanks to all. 6 delivered for £7.33. Worth a try surely!

Advantage spot ons are great. My household has four cats and we had a flea infestation. Frontline didn't work, nor any of the others we tried. It was only Advantage that sorted out the little blighters! Good luck

Will this be safe to use on the mother-in-law?

Oh man, I feel all itchy and scratchy now, gonna get some for myself - gotta itch that scratch. Scratch that, gotta scratch that itch lol

can you buy advantage online too?

Accourding to wiki, imidacloprid (active ingredient in Advantage) is very toxic to bees so it might be both?

Interesting to hear about frontline (fipronil) resistance. These products work by fleas biting the animal so if you still see fleas it might mean that 1) the product wasn't applied properly (it needs to be on the skin as it works using the oils!) and 2) the fleas are coming from somewhere else, e.g your house. Therefore a systemic approach should always be used such as carpet/household sprays and powders because a flea egg can survive a long time when dormant. Washing bedding is also a good idea. 3) It is working but you see a flea that hasn't bitten the animal yet or has only done so recently. Or fipronil resistance may be developing lol.



Can't really say it without sounding patronising sorry but that would be outside. My cat hasn't had them for years despite being an outdoor cat but frontline has always cleared them up. Whatever works for you though tbh.

As people have stated Advantage is the alternative to this, Advocate is the same as advantage and more expensive as it covers parasites aswell but obviously saves you worming them (I think!). Vets also recommend you use advantage/frontline every month (suprisingly), however imo you could probably get away with using them as and when as long as you take the systematic approach too as the products last one month. If you live in a bit of rural area then I would probably do it every month regardless as Leet1984 above seems to keep having problems.

Glad most people are aware of bob martin products, most of these are pretty terrible but I do think one has a decent active ingredient but is almost as much and not as effective as frontline/advantage so i prefer those. Bob martin and the supermarket stuff simply repel fleas and do nothing to deal with infestations so really a poor deterrent. With regards to buying flea treatment please please make sure you get the right one for your pet. Dog flea stuff is usually very toxic to cats and unless they get to a vet soon to be sedated and kept on a drip for a while it will unfortunately be lethal. If you have dogs/cats (cats in particular) don't ever buy lillies too! Some are alright but can't remember which.

I think I am speculating here but from what i have heard it does seem to be bob martin stuff affecting cats a lot more so I wonder if people have made this mistake? Most symptoms that people seem to be describing are typical of poisoning by dog flea stuff. Not that it makes too much difference anyway as I would recommend you avoid all these products regardless.

Oh great deal btw op lol. Reviews on website say bad things, someone says it doesnt work on ticks but it never claimed to and someone went back to effipro which worked even though they have the same active ingredient. oO

Yes, I think it was recently made a similar status to frontline so no prescription needed. With Frontline plus and Advocate however then you still need one.

And for me - got 6 big dog and 8 cat and postage for £13!

Frontline is rubbish now - super fleas have built up a resistance to it, all I can say is vary your treatments and change makes regularly

If anyone is still struggling with spot ons, I can recommend Indorex spray instead. It is a carpet and upholstery spray, it kills adult fleas on contact and kills any eggs in the carpet for up to a year if you believe the can. All I know is one whole can stopped a serious flea infestation in its tracks two years ago, and we haven't had an issue since. I still use front line every so often on my indoor moggy but as I can't get to our outdoor cat, I just Indorex lightly every month or so instead. £10ish a can online, worth every penny.

I have teeny tiny dogs and nothing is small enough.

Everything at your vet's is locked in a glass case because they charge so much for it!

Argle! Frontline doesn't work on ours anymore, now we're on a strange brand called Advocate which needs a vet prescription to get it. Hassle... hassle.... hmm, might try this for a month!
