Frontline Flea Control
Advantages: Really works, easy to apply
Disadvantages: A bit pricey
After about 3 years of constantly listening to my daughter crying and begging to get her a cat, I finally gave in and brought home 10 week old Tinker, a cute little tortoise-shell girl with an attitude. Of course as new pet owners we made a trip to the local pet store and spent a fortune on bedding, toys, food and everything else that a cat would ever need...or not need. We also decided to get her some flea treatment as she was constantly scratching, and even though I wasn't sure whether or not she had fleas, we thought better be safe than sorry. As she was quite young we couldn't buy the Frontline treatment at the time, so we opted for the Johnson's Veterinary Easy Spot on Treatment, which is suitable for kittens from 8 weeks old. This was applied as directed and naively we just assumed if she'd had fleas these would soon be dead and gone as promised on the packet. We couldn't have been more wrong. A few days later, off she went to the vets for her first vaccines, and on examination by the vet, she was diagnosed as having fleas. The vet recommended Frontline and even though we explained that she was not quite 12 weeks, after weighing her he said it would be fine as she weighed over 2 kilos.
So off we went to Pets at Home and for £15 bought the Frontline Spot on Treatment for Cats (3 pipettes, meaning 3 doses, which would last you about 12 weeks, as you must re-apply every 4 weeks). The Frontline Spot on Treatment is for the treatment and prevention of flea and tick infestations and control of biting lice. Each pipette contains 0.5 ml of liquid, which must be applied directly onto the cat's skin between the shoulder blades. This was easy enough to do and seemed to soak into her skin straight away (the Johnsons one which we had used before was in gel form and a lot of it had ended up in her fur rather than on her skin). It didn't seem to have a strong smell either like the Johnsons which had a strong medicinal tea tree kind of smell, lingering for hours.
About and hour later we start seeing little beasties all over the kitten, which we had never seen before, about 6 or 7 in total! A week later, back at the vets, he confirms that the cat is flea free! She is no longer scratching and we continue to use the Frontline Spot on Treatment, which I purchase online from www.pet-supermarket.co.uk for £11.15 with free delivery, which is a lot cheaper than anywhere else I've seen! Oh, and before I forget, I recommend the Indorex Spray for around the house, it has amazing reviews and anything else would really be a waste of money!
Summary: Well worth spending a bit more on this effective treatment against fleas and ticks
