“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. The next day I took him to the vets and after a costly injection and a syringe of liquid he started to come round after 48 hours do not use this product or the worming product they are dangerous. Minus stars… Read Full Review

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

Bob Martin have been very professional about this and asked for all the details so they can investigate - it is worth contacting them.

Do you happen to know the best email address for Bob Martin re this? It was fortunate I could rinse her under the tap within 10 mins as she is only small if not I dread to think what would have happened to her skin

“Dangerous!”

Written on: 19/05/2013 by RuthK1 (1 review written)

Do not use this product! I used on our cats and one of them had an extreme reaction which involved foaming at the mouth and convulsing, this is apparently not an uncommon side affect for this product. We were fortunate that she is a fairly robust cat and was fine after we washed it off her, but there are loads of reviews out there saying that lots of cats have died as a result of reactions to the product. Not worth risking!!… Read Full Review

Yes I concur - I used it, it is exactly the same as Frontline and excellent, which my vet used to sell to me. People should stop scaremongering - any problems they are having with their pets are not related to!

“Burnt my cat”

Written on: 12/04/2013 by PrincesOwner (1 review written)

There is a problem with the product, after googling the topic, it seems to be well known. I tried the product thinking that it wouldn't happen to our cat, well it did. I'm disgusted at Bob Martin. I will not be buying from them again. Please please listen to the reviews, yes it is cheaper than other brands, yet is it worth making animal suffer. I intend to contact the supermarket to warn them about this product… Read Full Review

I dont have any such problem, however! The 6pack ointment turned out to be a FOURpack. I looked carefully at the packaging and it is clear that it was originally packed as a 4-pack (no tempering, no removal are visible) whereas on the package it indicates six.
