Frontline Flea Control
Advantages: Easy to use, quick to use, cat does not seem to be bothered, works incredibly well.
When we first received our cat she was an 11 week old kitten, or there about, and unfortunately she had caught fleas from her mother. This was not good at all and as soon as my husband brought her home I could tell that she had fleas just from her meowing and scratching. We set to work bathing her with a flea product (which turned out to be a mistake as she was too small to regulate her own body temperature) and we then made sure we treated the whole flat (even though she hadn't been further than the hall) and from 12 weeks we begun using Frontline flea treatments on her neck too and we have continued this pretty much since about 6 months old to ensure that she stays flea free.
We tend to pay £14.29 for 3 months treatment from Pets At Home and our main reason for purchasing this treatment from there is just convenience, also, if the weight of our cat changes they will give us the correct dosage to ensure that we do not use too much or too little. I like that they are thorough in the details that they ask for and that we have to do this each time we visit for further supplies. This makes me feel confident that I am getting the most up to date information and dosage for our cat. A 6 pack of pipettes can be purchased for around £27.00 which saves around 65p per 3 months, however, as our cat has some problems with her weight I do not like to purchase 6 months just incase some go to waste.
These pipettes are incredibly simple to use. All I do is get my cat, give her a piece of ham or a treat then part the hair on the back of her neck and then pour this liquid on to her in two places a small distance apart. It is quite simple to open the pipettes, just snap the top off and it can be lightly squeezed to ensure that all of the liquid is released. This takes just a few seconds and my cat does not appear to even notice that I have used this on her.
Overall I would rate these 5/5. Since the fleas that she arrived with, and a small 'outbreak' a month or so later caused by using a second hand scratching post we have gone over a year with no fleas at all. Several of our friends had cats with fleas recently and despite noticing one on my clothing when at their house and not being able to find it again we have not had any outbreak at all and our cat stays healthy. I am confident that this works because I still brush and groom her every single day to remove all stray hairs and this is mainly done using a flea comb and then a standard cat grooming brush afterwards. I have not found any fleas on her at all and when she was the vet recently for a procedure they commented that I must be up to date with flea and worm treatments as she was in great condition.
I appreciate that the price of around £4.80 a month will seem expensive to some but on the occasion that she had fleas I spent about £40 on the two occasions to make sure that the flea situation was under control as quickly as possible and that the fleas were eradicated. I consider this to be wonderful value for money.
Summary: A fantastic flea prevention and treatment from Frontline.
