    I love this stuff, its great and works fine…however it is very important to apply the product monthly as well as correctly.

    I have thought for years with the Cats I have had, as well as have been told by several vets and vet techs over the years; that the correct way to apply this product is directly on the skin between the shoulder blades. And to be fair to most of the Vets whom have told me that, for the most part I was successful using that method of application. However, as time went on I found this way to apply Frontline more and more difficult as well as it always seem uncomfortable for the Cat.

    You can use the space between your Cat’s shoulder blades as a guide – BUT – the exact proper application spot is actually higher up – at the base of the skull (or as worded inside the package if your Frontline came with the proper instructions `at the base of the neck’).

    I was very pleasantly surprised that this method was not only much easier, but that there was also no wasted product…I was able to quickly and easily apply the product to each of our 3 cats. I also noticed right away two things. One, each Cat was pretty much comfortable right away and fine as they were before I applied the product – as if I had not even treated them at all. Two, the product was at a spot the cats could not reach even if they wanted to.

    I don’t know why I had never heard of this application method before, as well as why all of the Frontline (and related products) I had purchased in the past said to apply the product directly onto the skin “Between the shoulder blades”.

    This product is great and does work, but it is very important that you apply the product once every 30 days. I would suggest picking a particular date of the month and sticking with that date each and every month. (If you are ever off by a day or two, that is fine – just remember to try and not let it go over 30 days if possible.) Frontline Plus for Cats is not intended to last longer than 30 days, and while it may for some Cats – I personally would not recommend going past the 30 days.

    If your Cats have worms, this product will keep off the new fleas yes but will do nothing for worms – you should de-worm your Cats first (if needed) and then start with the Frontline about 3 days after de-worming. Indoor Cats can get worms from fleas, even in a very clean home – from time to time some fleas will get in (whether it’s on your shoes or from leaving your doors open, etc). Cats usually get worms from when fleas get on them, and then as the cat as it’s grooming itself – the cat ingests the fleas (of course the Cat has no idea this will give them worms – they are just cleaning themselves as Cats do). When a Cat eats fleas or other parasites that can get on them from time to time, they can also get other things if left untreated such as Heartworms which are usually fatal.

    However there is good news! Just apply Frontline once every 30 days and your Cat will stay Flea and parasite free! Any fleas or anything else that may from time to time get onto your Cat will die right away and be of no risk to your Cat. Also over time any residual fleas will eventually die off and your home will be flea – free! However you must apply this product every 30 days year round to ensure that Fleas do not return to your Cat! Preventing your cat from having fleas will in turn not only make you cat much more comfortable, but will also prevent more serious things such as Tapeworms, Roundworms and Heartworms to name just a few things that can originate from your cat ingesting fleas. These more serious conditions for Cats can be prevented with a monthly flea treatment such as Frontline Plus for example.

    If your cat or home is for some reason very infested with fleas – you have to address that problem first! Remove the cats from the home and use “Flea Bombs” if needed, at least that’s how I have always heard them referred to while the proper term is yes “Flea Fogger” or even “Fumigator”. You can also use sprays or other like products for your carpet and furniture. Once the home is flea free and your Cat has been treated at the vet for fleas, then make sure to stick with the Frontline every 30 days thereafter. You can also use the Frontline liquid spray to initially kill fleas on the Cat, or a Flea Shampoo.

    Also keep in mind if your Cat and home are heavily infested with fleas, you should de-worm your cat as well. For most people, de-worming should only be done by or under the direction of a reputable Veterinarian. However if you have owned Cats for many years and know what meds to buy, you can de-worm cats on your own -BUT- only if you are a VERY experienced Cat owner. You can kill your Cat if you give it the wrong type or too much of a de-wormer as de-wormer is a poison (though it’s this poison that kills the worms and is perfectly safe when used properly).

    Frontline helps to keep your cat healthy and is a great preventative medication for your cat. Frontline can and will help keep your Cat healthy and happy for many years to come! Also keep in mind Frontline does not replace periodic checkups or help your Cat in any way if he or she is injured though it will go a very long way in preventing many Cat illnesses and problems related to fleas, ticks, and common parasites.

    There is more you can do to keep fleas away too, such as treating your yard (unless you have an apartment or condo, etc.) with Pesticide Granules such as Ortho or whatever brand works for you. I am in the Midwest and I would say twice a year is good for the yard treatment, but in South Carolina where I used to live I would have to treat the yard 3 – 4 times a year. If your Cat is outdoor only, keep the Cat inside for 3 -5 days (personally I would say no less than 5 days if possible – a week is more than enough if you want to be extra sure), the same applies for indoor-outdoor cats. This will give the Pesticide time to get into the ground so that it’s not toxic to your Cat or small animals such as birds that your Cats may go after. I also use the Riddex Pest repellers….every little bit helps! And of course most importantly of all, apply the Frontline once every 30 days.

    I bought some cheaper flea meds from Sams club and this one works way better than that generic stuff. My cats hasn’t had and negative effects from it ether.

    We noticed a couple fleas on our pets (2 cats and a dog) so I immediately scoped Amazon for flea treatments. The minute this arrived 3/4/24 I applied to freshly bathed cats. It doesn’t work at all. I mean at all!! Here we are almost 1 month later and the fleas aren’t gone, we are starting to get bit an every time I comb my cats with a flea comb I’m pulling tiny and large fleas off my cats. This product was expensive for it to not work at all. Save your money. This product sucks!

    I own a rescue cat and Poor baby couldn’t seem to get the fleas and ticks off of her and she began getting cuts and losing hair due to the bugs. A couple of these treatments took the issue away for a few weeks. We still took her to the vet to get proper treatment but even after we continue to use this product. Anything for our fur baby. 🐱

    We had previously been using Revolution Plus for our cats which requires a prescription. Due to changing circumstance we were unable to do that anymore so had a lapse in treatments. When we noticed the cats scratching we started looking at OTC drops and it came down to Advantage or Frontline. From everything we read, Frontline takes longer to kill fleas (24 hrs compared to just 12 for Advantage) but kills more than just fleas. So we went with the Frontline Plus.

    We were disappointed that it didn’t provide that immediate relief/cure in 24 hrs, but looking at Frontline’s own website, they do say it can take as long as three months/three applications to really be effective. Our guys will be getting their 2nd dose tomorrow and then we’ll have to re-order for their next two doses. Really hoping to see full protection in this time to justify the approx $75 every other month this costs for our three cats.

    UPDATE 4-5-2015

    Screw it. Get Simple Solutions flea and tick spray. It’s $8.98 for a large can of it at Wal-Mart. It kills the adults on contact, and does control the eggs and larvae fairly well. It’s natural and safe to use around pets, and is said to be able to be sprayed right on them. Well, I use coconut oil on my cats now, instead, but I spray Simple Solutions around my carpet and linoleum about once a day (had a recent flea infestation, so now it’s down to the stragglers) and it does great!

    Here’s a link to it here on Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/Simple-Solution-Flea-Tick-Spray/dp/B00TQ8V7F4/ref=sr_1_1?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1428229091&sr=1-1&keywords=simple+solution+flea

    UPDATE: 3-19-2015

    I purchased this product, in the 3-dose size, again in late January of 2015. It didn’t work, and I couldn’t figure out why. I was hesitant to come back, but considering that Frontline from Merial has always worked great and been safe, I figured I would try again. I thought, "Maybe it was just a bad batch that I got." Apparently, no, everyone else has been having similar problems. Not only did it not work, but the fleas seemed to get worse instead of better. I have now taken to buying a cheap $10 flea shampoo from PetSmart and using 2 tablespoons of it to 2 1/2 cups of water in a spray bottle that I use on the floor, my bedding, and (every 2 weeks, per instructions), my cat. It’s certainly no cure, but it does a better job than the Frontline did at keeping the fleas temporarily at bay. They tend to be attracted to my feet, ankles, and lower legs. I’ve found that the best protection I have is wearing knee-high office stalkings (the thicker fancy-shmancy kind, not the hosery type). I now realize -why- even men used to wear such things 400 years ago! It was out of NECESSITY. Anyway, they do keep me from getting bit, and when I spray the shampoo spray on my feet, the fleas jump right off. I’m semi-convinced (not completely) that the shampoo is too diluted to cause serious skin harm to me, and I have not shown any sign of an allergic reaction, nor has Sam.

    When I start to see reviews that Merial has resolved this issue, I will come back to buy. In the meantime, guess I’m stuck with making my own cheap flea-repellent for myself. The brand of shampoo I bought for that was Sentry PurrScriptions Coconut Berry flea and tick shampoo for cats. I’m not a vet or a doctor, so go as both before you try this on yourself or your cat. I’m just winging it, myself. I guess I don’t have much other choice. Nothing else seems as effective right now.

    My Review from Several Years Ago:

    The Frontline I ordered for my 3 year old male cat, Sam, arrived today! I was prepared with a couple socks and safety pins, a wet washcloth with dishsoap on it (just in case, as dish soap usually gets these kinds of things off of cats and saves their lives most of the time if they have had a life threatening reaction), a scissors, an indellible marking pen (I like it better than stickers ’cause I always lose calendars), and his favorite laser-pointer toy. I read the instructions and went for it. He’s been doing great, and there has been no need for the soapy cloth! He hasn’t even tried to lick the medication off! He’s sort of tried to lick the bottom of the socks around his neck a couple times, but he’s not nearly as fussy as he was before.

    This totally worked out! Saved me the extra cost of going to the vet (who I went to before: she used Frontline on him and then sent me home with 2 months worth more to apply myself). I can highly recommend it for any cat who has previously and successfully been treated with it by a vet and been under their supervision. From what I’ve been reading online, most cats do fine with it anyway. If testing on a previously untreated cat, either have a vet do it the first time or at least keep that soapy washcloth around (keep a dot of Dawn in one place after getting the cloth wet, and use that dot to remove the medication if your pet has a bad reaction).

    How do I know that? I had the unfortunate bad experience of using Hartz on Sam about 3 years ago and it POISONED him. He was so close to death that I would try anything – so I went all over the Intertubes looking for answers. The only thing I hadn’t tried yet was the soapy washcloth that someone mentioned. I was fortunate enough to have found that in time. Some people found it for their cats, but it was too late, their cats had been exposed for too long. STAY AWAY FROM HARTS! It just basically kills cats — and it doesn’t even do anything to their fleas. Their anti-hairball gel works for Sam just fine, it’s never poisoned him, but the flea treatments — just DON’T DO IT. Use Frontline or kiss your beloved kitty goodbye and have a nice funeral planned. Sam was one of the fortunate (very) few who survived their assault on him. Stores shouldn’t carry Hartz flea treatments. Amazon shouldn’t either. No one should ever use it. Google it and you’ll see for yourself: cats just die from it. ONLY USE FRONTLINE if you love your pets and want them around!

    PS. I really am sorry that my mentioning that probably hurts a great number of you out there who lost your beloved kitties to Hartz’ flea treatment. It’s for a good cause, so I’m doing it anyway. My heart goes out to you, and I know full well that, just like me, you had no idea that Hartz’ flea treatment would murder your beloved furry friends <3

    If you have an infestation, you might wanna go with Frontline Gold, but this one works well if your cat is only experiencing minor flea issues.
    My kitties had no more than 5 fleas at a time and this product cleared them right off!

    They do absolutely hate the smell though, so I had to open the packages away from them before applying. Make sure you get it far enough up on their neck so they can’t lick it as well!

    …So… one summer night, a Raccoon got in our house, through the chimney, at 3AM in the morning EST. I called the police and they dragged the guy out with one of those animal apprehension poles and we all went back to sleep and life went on!

    …about 2 to 3 months later, my dad, mom, sister and i kept seeing little red itchy bumps appearing on there skin in various spots, mainly the legs and arms. We thought it might be bed bugs, but they were nowhere to be found. I say my buddy scratching and thought nothing of it since i know cats do that. One night i noticed my buddy scratching up a storm, consistently, on the chairs near me. I took a closer look through his long fur and saw TONS of fleas! but you know what? if thats gross, heres the best part… i also noticed in the seat he was sitting in, there were tiny little white things that fell off on him from where was sitting, after he got fed up with my picking at him and ran away. THEY ALL WERE FLEA EGGS!! HUNDREDS OF THEM!! I should mention, he was an indoor cat. Took the chair outside in the dead of the freezing Michigan winter morning and shook it like there was no tomorrow. Went out and bought flea traps, collars, and dip, but after using them for a month, they only did so much. The traps and dip were effective, i should mention!… then, enough was enough. My buddy had enough, we all had enough and felt bad for him since we kept giving him flea dips and he hated it. Ordered this here Frontline Plus (AKA The Flea Nerve Bomb) applied it when it arrived and… after about 30 mins to an hour, seemingly, nothing is happing… it only appears that way, because after about a few hours, they are tweaking out, spasming and dying! I checked him and all over they were slowly dying! After the 2nd dose, they were totally wiped out! Just to be sure i applied the 3rd and have not sen a flea since!

    TL;DR: If your cat has fleas… BUY THIS STUFF!! It will end those tiny annoying bastards!! (the fleas, not your friend!)
