“reaction to frontline”

Written on: 29/12/2012

We wondered why our cat kept getting sore areas on his back and flanks, then it dawned on is that these outbreaks closely followed the applications of frontline. The lesions resembled chemical burns. Since stopping frontline, these problems have ceased. Has anyone else experienced this?… Read Full Review

“Frontline does not work”

Written on: 30/08/2012

I used Frontline when it first came onto the market, it was fantastic up to last year, then it stopped working, I breed Birman cats they are semi-long haired, and I never had a flea on them with Frontline spray, I bought the largest spray that you made and it would last me for 2 years now it dosent last 6 months, and does not work, I use spot on for my 14 year old Birman Melody who is allergic to fleas, she ended up being treated by my vet for her flea allergy, did her with spot on 2 weeks ago… Read Full Review

“frontline spray no longer woks!!!”

Written on: 14/07/2012

I breed Devon rex cats which are flea magnets. I sprayed them with prescription, expensive frontline spray only a few weeks ago and today noticed that they are once again running alive with fleas even though they are in a cattery and never go out. When I treated the cats I also treated the whole room with a household spray, and washed all their bedding on a boil wash. Don't waste your money. It no longer works. My other moggie cats which go out into the fields all day, wear poundland flea… Read Full Review

My dog had only a few fleas. My vet recommended I try frontline. It did not work. Fleas still there. Was told to apply it again in 2 weeks. I did and still did not work. Im going back to Advantix as soon as I can safely apply it to my dog. It works.

Written on: 04/05/2009

On my kitties, Merial Frontline has worked for fleas and ticks so far. For my dog, 1-2 weeks after application we took over 30 ticks off her! Don't know why, but as pricey as it is they might want to adverstise more adequately where it won't work so people won't waste their money… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/08/2008 by Lynn gillespie (1 review written)

Was very disappointed with the Frontline, considering I had used it on my cats for many years without any problems. Now, my new edition is scratching all the time and has brought fleas into the house. Biting me at great strength! I got the pipets from my local chemist at the cost of £17 which is a lot of money. If it don't work it is very disappointing. I have spent a lot of money on other products to get rid of the fleas in my home costing even more money. Why has this product stopped… Read Full Review

Scubadiver1's Response to Lynn gillespie's Review

Written on: 01/09/2008

I to have used frontline and more recently frontline combi on my cats for years. Up until 6 months ago, when after using 3 pipet treatments in as many weeks on each cat, they still seemed to have fleas and plenty of them. I also had used staykill in and around the house and washed all the pet bedding etc. I too agree that they may have changed the formula. I cannot put it down to anything else. My cat's lifestyle or environment in which my cats live have not changed at all. That final fact is that I AM NEVER GOING TO BUY OR RECOMMEND FRONTLINE PRODUCTS AGAIN.

Written on: 15/10/2008

I would like to agree with both the review and the previous comment. I have used frontline for many years on up to six cats at any one time in the family, and when used in conjunction with a good household spray (I have found Zodiac to be one of the most effective) up until this autumn the combination of both products has always provided a quick and effective solution to the problem. However, I now only have two small feline friends, both of whom are regularly treated with frontline and don't mix with other cats. Up until now, this year has been trouble free but over the past few weeks despite every effort, even hard floors have been washed and thoroughly sprayed, and both cats received another frontline treatment exactly one week ago, they are still not flea free. I don't like to apply another spot on treatment so soon after the last, but has the formula been altered or have the fleas built up an immunity? Any further comments or suggestions from other reviewers would be most welcome.

Written on: 01/11/2007 by walkies (1 review written)

Merial the manufacturers were very helpful, but there product just didn't work. We tried it for 6 months (as Merial stated there could be a problem in our area - a "flea burden' or 'flea challenge' as they call it). But we switched to Revolution as we just couldn't leave it any longer and the fleas were gone in days! We went from 100s of eggs noticeable in the dog's bedding every morning to absolutely none within days of starting Revolution - amazing!… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/06/2007 by KAREN2007 (2 reviews written)

I used the liquid, as instructed (after using another brand). My mum recommended Frontline to us, as she'd used it in the past. After putting it on my cat (Tiger), the next day I could tell there was a difference. Tiger was back to normal - eating his food and a lot happier. Also, we had seen dead fleas come off Tiger, which was a blessing. I will be using the Merial Frontline flea treatment every month now without fail, and the calendar stickers supplied in the pack were great. I paid £15.50… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/07/2005 by allyinva (1 review written)

Frontline Spray did not kill my dogs fleas. When I contacted the wholesaler/retailer they advised me to "bomb" my home and treat my yard, then to reapply the spray. After following all of these steps, my dog still has fleas. When I approached the wholesaler/retailer for a refund they told me since it had been more than 10 days and the bottle of spray had been used (duh) they could not refund my money. They recommended I contact Merial, which I did. The "CSR" at Merial said that my dogs were… Read Full Review

Becky White's Response to 190577_Ives's Review

Written on: 30/01/2006

I have always found frontline to be an extremely effective flea and tick treatment. I have 3 cats and a dog I use it on. I do combine it with a house spray to provide all round protection. The only draw back is it won't stop fleas or ticks jumping on the animal and with ticks especially they will take a couple of days too die which is a bit slow, however once they are dead they are much easier to remove, if they don't fall off. Of course as we all know preventing a problem is much easier than treating one especially with fleas!!

“Frontline for cats is an effective and easy to use...”

Written on: 16/07/2004 by Chinablue (4 reviews written)

Frontline for cats is an effective and easy to use flea treatment. You just part the fur on the cat's neck around the shoulder blades and squeeze the contents of the pipette onto the area. You should though be careful not to get this on your hands if possible and if you do - wash your hands straight away.

Whilst you can normally buy these individually it works out cheaper to buy a pack of 3 - prices vary as on the various internet websites it would probably work out a bit cheaper than our… Read Full Review
