was horrified to discover my cat had fleas a few months ago, and wanted to get rid of them asap. I was a little baffled as to where he got them from as he doesn't go outside much at all, but I became a woman on a mission. I went down to the pet shop to see what they recommend to get rid of them as quickly as possible. They advised that the best way to prevent them was to use a spot-on product such as Frontline or Advantage, but I would need to use a spray to kill the current infestation. St this point I saw Bob Martin's Silent Flea Spray and decided that that would be a good idea as I could zap him while he was having is food or otherwise distracted and he wouldn't even notice. How wrong I was!
The bottle was a good shape and size, slim and light enough to hold with one hand while stroking the cats fur backwards with the other, as directed. In theory it would have worked perfectly, but the first spray almost made me jump, never-mind the cat. I can honestly say that I have deodorants and hairsprays that spray more quietly than this!
I then reverted to plan B. After concluding that the spray wasn't quiet, I decided that if it worked effectively it would be worth holding my cat still whilst spraying him. To do this I had to wait a while, and then hide the bottle as just the sight of it now made him run! I finally managed to do this, and waited. Then checked. Then waited until the following day, then checked again. And the same the next day, until I concluded that after all that effort the spray didn't work at all.
On top of all this, the smell is terrible. I wasn't expecting it to rival a flowery air freshener but still I hoped it would be slightly more pleasant than it was.
I was always under the impression that Bob Martin was one of the leading manufacturers of pet care product, but after having this discussion with several people, it seems (from what I've heard) that a lot of their products don't seem to work very well. Obviously, some people will have had luck with this product which is great, but personally I was very disappointed and won't be buying it again. The only reason I gave it 2 stars rather than 1 is due to the fact that in theory it is a good idea, but it was very different in practice.
Bob Martin Silent Flea Spray for Cats is the quick and easy way to treat your cat for fleas.
