    What is it supposed to do? Is it only prevent fleas? Or cure too? I have a complaint and want to complain to them that I have wasted my friggin money, but wonder if they will come back with "Well, it is a preventative treament".

    I found a flea on Teddy and it is so much cheaper than Frontline (which if i'd had the money I would have bought). I figured getting a cheaper one is better than nowt. Turns out nowt would have been better! :mad:

    Any recommendations on a good flea treament. I now have two to treat :rolleyes: Urgh, hate the horrible evil little things (the fleas, not the cats :D).

    Frontline would be the best option. Most petshop treatments just dont work.

    Be careful using Bob Martin products, there have been numerous cases of animal becoming extrmemly ill after use.

    I agree,we used some Bob Martin wormer on my old bitch which resulted in her having a severe allegic reaction and we had to take her to our vets as an emergency,hence why we always go to our vets now for wormer etc....

    Yes, I have just seen a thread about Bob Martin Worm treament. Had I known I would not have used the awfull, useless stuff.

    I want to complain, but wanted to first get the facts about what it is supposed to do. Frontline it shall be.

    Yep people will because theyl think their doing right by their pets and unfortunatly they dont realise the risks, it should be made more public to people the risks i tell everyone who mentions it who comes in work when they mention using it, i think sometimes some people dont believe the seriousness of it:( i know before i went to college and then working as a nurse my mum used it and the rest of my fam with their pets. pleased to say i dont know anyone who uses it now.
