There are 2 different versions of Frontline. One you can get cheap from the supermarket that does absolutely no good at all and the one you get from the vets that does work. Does anyone know whehter this is the effective one or the waste of time one?

We use Effipro which is a generic product of Frontline using the same active ingredient Fipronil.
Works out about 20% cheaper than the cheapest Frontline and does the same job for us as our cats have never had fleas.

The one you buy at the vets is frontline combo which ,if you already have flea problem in the house will kill all bugs. The one above, if used as prescribed every month or so, will prevent your cats from getting fleas. Apparerently you will soon be able to buy the combo one without a prescription. Please bear in mind that if you one vial of the combo at the vets it may cost 7.00 or more.

I'll second that, it's usually a similar price to a pack of Frontline but you get four not three does for a tenner.

No it doesn't, it kills adult fleas so in effect minimises the number they'll get. You can't stop fleas, only control them.

Used this for ages now and not had a problem with fleas, maybe I've just been lucky.

I used the combo once when I first got a cat then used the frontline above every month.

This frontline is useless, Only killed a few of our cat's flea's, Ordered some Frontline Combo which is supposed to be better but that didn't kill all of them either, It has in the past but it seems recently flea's may of built up an immunity.

You can order Frontline Combo online with out prescription but it comes from France, It cost me around £22 for 3 pipettes. From here

our vet said fleas are getting immune to Frontline and to change to a different chemical. Using up the last of our effipro before shopping around. Fleas are manageable quantities on frontline/effipro but not extinct in our house.

I bought this from this site ages ago, it does not work i comb every day works better than this lol


I am just adding i comb my cats every day for fleas not me lol

I think your vet was having a laugh. Probably just trying to push some other more profitable alternative on you.

Unfortunately it's not as simple as that! My brother is a vet and swears that Frontline is the best for cats and dogs, but if your cat or dog already has fleas then they will be all through your home. So putting this on the cats will only kill the ones on the cats, not the ones around your home. If your pet has fleas, then your house has fleas and you will need to de-flea your house aswell.

I 2nd this comment.
If the fleas are already in your home, they'll be looking for a new host (You!) as the cat will probably be Flea free.
You'll have to de-flea the home home first then do the cat, dog or whoever.
I did my cat with the combo at the vet this month and he said the combo kills hatched fleas and coats the eggs of unhatched ones so they don't hatch.
Charged me a fortune in the process so hope that cat lives another year!!

Great deal. I can whole heartidly recommend Frontline and at that price it's worth buying. It does work but you need to be seriously thorough! Follow the guidelines on treatment intervals and if there is an existing household problem you need to use something along the lines of Staykill or RIP Fleas household spray at the same time. And, obviously you need to hoover every crevice you can find in your house as if you miss an egg you could still be struggling.

Frontline combo in my opinion is just a money spinner for the vets to get you to buy Combo from them. I can say this as I work within the industry. The only benefit of Combo over regular Frontline is that it treats the commonly used areas of the dog or cat only. Therefore if you treat your pet with Combo and for some reason it goes upstairs for the first time in months and a flea drops off you're stuffed as the residual effect of the Combo wont have effect.

Stick with regular Frontline, use it as often as is safe and save yourself a bomb by getting it cheap!

good price,heat added

From experience I recommend getting the behind the neck treatment job from bob martin..

We were INFESTED, we tried everything from flea powder to medicine but months past and hardly saw any improvment. That bob martin stuff got ALL the little buggers, also brush from head to tail for the eggs/lava and vacuum, vacuum and vacuum some more. It is a winnable war

"If you start treating when your pet already has fleas, you might occasionally still see fleas on your pet even after you’ve applied FRONTLINE Spot On. Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean the treatment’s not working. You are simply seeing new fleas that have hatched from the pupae in your home.

The fact is, there is no product available to kill flea pupae. But once the pupae have hatched into adult fleas which jump onto your pet, FRONTLINE Spot On efficiently kills them within 24 hours. It’s just a matter of waiting for all of the pupae to hatch (this can take several weeks or even months) and ensuring that you continue to protect your pet with FRONTLINE Spot On. "

Understand the enemy, clean the house, the bedding etc and then use the product on a regular basis.

Cheaper here: viovet.co.uk/ - £15.02 for 6 x 0.5 pipettes. P&P is £1 though.

However, Frontline doesn't seem to be effective for all my cats. It doesn't seem to be very good with the 2 ragdolls we own, so we ended up switching to Stronghold which works wonders for all of them.

Prices are around the same as Frontline, so if you're not having much luck with Frontline, do have a look into Stronghold.

a pound in pound land!

Before Frontline Combo worked very well in the past and never had flea's after, it's only recently that frontline has failed to kill all the flea's, House is clear of flea's also after treatment, But now it's useless.

My vet said that there has recently been studies into whether or not fleas are becoming immune to frontline (or fipronil) and it's been found that they're not and that Frontline is still effective.

The same vets were pushing the Advocate (which deals with fleas and some types of worms), my understanding is that now Frontline is available in supermarkets and chemists cheaper than the vets that the vets are pushing the likes of Frontline Combo and Advocate because you need a prescription for those so you're more likely to purchase straight from them.

I was still finding fleas even after treating with the Frontline so I treated all of my carpets and soft furnishings with Indorex spray and bought a better vacuum and I've not had a problem since (this was over 6 months ago). The Frontline kills the flea within 24 hours of them biting the pet so if you've got an infestation in your carpet and they then jump on to your pet you will still see them. You really need to treat your home as well as your pet.

Great price thanks, just ordered 2. I have a cat who is very allergic to flees so I know instantly if we get any at all. Frontline has always worked well on all 3 of mine.
