“Dramatic hair loss”

Written on: 15/10/2014 by AspenWhite127 (1 review written)

I applied spot on at two of my 3 yo cats. One seems to tolerate it okay but second cat has lost half of her hair and keeps leaving balls of hair on carpet wherever she goes. I am shocked and very worried for her. Will need to take to hospital and check if she is alright. Don't be buying it. I only got it because it is in Asda near to my house and clinics around me only offer injection, which I strongly oppose… Read Full Review

“Shocking”

Written on: 03/09/2014 by 284Joyce (1 review written)

Applied the product as instructed and noticed instantly that it was burning my cats hair. Washed the product of immediately but it had left a huge gaping sore which was bleeding. Sulphuric acid does pretty much the same thing! I was was more than distressed to think I had put my adorable pet through such pain. And before Bob Martin tries to blind me with science...I am a chemist and I work in pharmaceutical research so please no excuses....your batch testing requires immediate… Read Full Review

“Do not use.”

Written on: 06/08/2014 by Daxe473 (1 review written)

I brought bob martin spot on for my 11 week old kitten as he had a few fleas. Only pplied a few drops (only) to the back of his neck as he is so small... Within a few minutes he was scratching the area like mad and running all over the place. I knew something was up, so googled reviews of the product! Simply awful reviews!!!! I washed it all off with warm water and baby shampoo. Poor kitty was a mess after (drowned rat!) but at least he's okay. I don't know how the heck bob martin is still in… Read Full Review

“Sudden death ”

Written on: 18/06/2014

Bob martin's... This product should be banned, in fact all of it! Owners are buying this to protect their poor pets from fleas without knowing that this is later eventually going to kill their pets! My cat also died because of this, and she was actually pregnant at the time and I'm happy the kittens did not get affected. I will not rest until Bob Martins is completely wiped off the shelves and internet, and banned… Read Full Review

Do not buy, I bought this product thinking I was doing right but as soon as I applied my 18 month old cat was wobbling and then just layed down would not eat or drink and looked so poorly.

Do not use anything containing Permethrin. This pesticide has been banned for home gardeners' use for several years due to toxicity - so how can it be permitted as an ingredient for use inside the home and on our pets?!

“Avoid!!”

Written on: 09/03/2014

2 weeks ago,I bought the spot on flea treatment for my cat. 2 days later, I awoke at midnight to him stumbling down the stairs. He had a wobbly gait in his hind legs and was generally twitching. He is 16 and on a special renal diet for decreased renal function. I thought the worst ,thinking it was end stage renal failure. I took him to an emergency vet (at cost of £218 ) and vet took bloods. Amazingly, his renal function was very good (the diets work) and the vet was mystified. She suggested I… Read Full Review

“Please, please avoid. ”

Written on: 31/01/2014

Please, please do not use this product on your pet. My eight year old cat who is usually full of energy and incredibly friendly was treated with this, and within hours was lethargic and vomiting. Thankfully she was taken to the vet in time for treatment, but I dread to think what could have happened after reading horrific side effects encounter by other pets on the internet. This is a dangerous product that should not be on the market. Their website claims that only 3 cats have had a serious… Read Full Review

Catfriendly's Comment

Written on: 12/08/2013

Have used Bob Martin twice on my five year old cat now. The second time one day ago and have just noticed that where I have applied it (between her shoulder blades) that her fur has fallen out and I can see a small patch of her pink skin. Also more worrying and am not sure if it is related but she has also developed a small lump on her back. I did read these reviews before using the product but intend not to use them again and will be contacting the supplier. Please be very careful and give consideration to getting advice from your local vet first.

“DO NOT BUY!!!”

Written on: 03/08/2013

We used this on our 1 year old cat for the first time. She feel ill straight after, lethargic, sleeping all day, no movement and always shaking. She wouldn't even eat or drink. She hasn't been the same since, doesn't jump and has no confidence. Took her to the vets today, they said a lot of cats have a bad reaction to Bob Martin spot on as they use cheap chemicals. I paid £107 for a blood test to see if she has kidney or liver damage from this. Fingers crossed. Strongly do not recommend!… Read Full Review

“Cat Losing Fur”

Written on: 02/06/2013 by janetleeke (1 review written)

I can't believe I've only just looked at reviews! I thought Bob Martin was a reputable company, but since using the spot on treatments my cat's fur is coming out in clumps around her neck where it was applied. She has even just let me wash her - this is unheard of as she does not let you pick her up, but she must have been in such discomfort that it was a relief. I advise people not to buy iy and instead use product from the vet. They may be more expensive, but the animals are worth it. I'm… Read Full Review
