    just a brief summary of events
    i have an 18 year old fairly healthy cat for her age called cinders who i dewormed on sunday using bob martins spot on dewormer ,within 3 hours she was rushed to the vets with severe breathing problems twice is those 4 days we were warned by the vet that she wasnt going to make it,they couldnt get her breathing under control for 2 days then she picked up and then relasped again with her breathing problem ,she was very spaced out unaware of her surroundings and it was so painful to see
    on the day that thay told us she could come home she also fitted she finally came out on wednesday evening but i think it will take her along time to get over this,she is still not eating fully and has spent most of the time sleeping the final bill was £596.00 which i am trying to claim back from bob martins as there is no warnings on the packet or leaflet with about any severe reactions with this product
    the vet said they see this sort of thing all the time with bob martin product just wanted to write as a warning but also to ask if anyone else has had anything like this happen to there cat

    I hope cinders is soon back to full health, it makes you think about what we put in our animals, you do the best you can for them. We no longer have our oldest dog vaccinated the last twicwe he was he had a reaction, didn't want to push it again.

    I pray Cinders is improving:)
    A couple of years ago I had a complaint about Bob Martins spot on for fleas, it had a similar affect on one of my cats :( I put a complaint in and there response was! send receipts and packaging into our customer services and we will reimburse you:k::mad:
    So good luck with your claim.

    I've never used bob martin don't think I ever will now think I'll stick to paying through the teeth at the vets for wormers and flea treatments. Glad Cinders is better.
