Advantages: it works
I have had an outburst of fleas previously and it was enough to make me religiously treat my cat for them, to prevent any sort of future outbreak. I used a cheap flea treatment from a local pet shop and thought it would be enough but it wasn't. I'll fill you in on the saga; my cat disappeared for a few days and came back looking like he had a really rough few days, on some sort of cat bender associating with goodness knows who. After a few days of him returning, I noticed a flea jump across my sofa. I was horrified and leapt around trying to get hold of the little bleeder but it disappeared into my favourite velvet cushion. Lovely. On closer inspection; he was riddled and I felt really upset for him, it must have been very uncomfortable for him. However, not as uncomfortable as the bath I had to give him! Shampooing 16 claws and many teeth is very hard work, but the battle was won and he looked like a drowned rat. I then proceeded to tackle the house and used many potions and sprays to get rid of them lurking round the house. I spent around £50 on treatments for the home and the cat.
The moral of the story.... If I had only bought frontline in the first place, I could have avoided this whole incident.
I have been using frontline after this incident and being recommended by the vet and have never had another problem. I would fully recommend it and never use anything else.
*Price and availability*
The price of the treatment costs £15.22 for a pack of 6 which will last you 7-8 months. I bought mine from Ebay as it is the cheapest I have seen it, but they sell it at my vets with a much bigger mark up.
The pipette is filled with the flea treatment and has a snap off lid. Once you snap this lid off, you are left with a small point where the liquid comes out. This point is long enough to get close to your cat and main base of the pipette, the bit you squeeze is easy to hold and easy to depress.
Inside the box is 3 pipettes, that come in a foil packet. To get one pipette out of the foil, simply push it out in the same you would dispense a paracetamol. Then store the rest of the pack away in a safe place until you need to use it again.
*How to use*
Frontline is an easy to administer and all you need to do is gently part the hair on the back of the cats neck and dispense the liquid. This is the best place to administer it as cats cannot lick it off here. The nature of Frontline Spot On Cat means it does not need to go into your cats blood stream. This makes it suitable for use on pregnant cats.
Frontline can be used on kittens once they reach 8 weeks old, providing they meet at least the 1Kg minimum weight for the pack.

* Effective against fleas for around 5 weeks after treatment
* Effective against ticks for around a month after treatment
* Lice infestations are under control within 48 hours
* Treating Fleas
* Preventing Fleas, Ticks and Lice
* Use on cats over 1kg
* Kittens over 8 weeks and over 1Kg
* Use on pregnant cats
After the flea outbreak, I noticed that within 24 hours there were visibly less fleas. This is fantastic as soon as I saw them, I wanted them gone, for his sake and for mine! I was really impressed with the speediness of the product.
The application of the product is really easy and it always helps to take the cat by surprise. I lull him into a false sense of security, cuddle him tickle his neck, then BHAM I squirt it right on his skin at the back of his neck! Of course he hates it and sulks for the next hour, but this is a small price to pay.
The liquid does smell pretty bad and the cat smells for the next 24 hours. He also has a crispy sticky neck as the liquid dries. Again, a small price to pay.
Since using frontline, I have never seen another flea on him and he still goes out and plays with the rough "street cats."
I'm really pleased with Frontline and could not recommend it enough. I always set a little phone reminder for five weeks time so I know that my cat is always protected.
You may think that frontline is expensive and at some places it is. My vets wanted to charge me £18.00 for three! This is extortionate and you can get it cheaper elsewhere. It is definitely worth the money and fully recommends it to any pet lover/ flea hater out there.
Summary: I would only ever use frontline.
