finally something that does what it saysMay 19, 2005
By Deborah MacGillivray
been down the road with flea and tick collars. Most seem to work when they are new. After the first month it's down hill all the way. Also, after having problems with another brand and was looking for something that was vet recommended. This comes with that recommendation. However the proof is in the pudding as they say -- or in this case the pussy cat.
This stuff does what is say. It stops fleas.So do your pets the favor. They will thank you. It's given once a month on their shoulder blades. Nothing I have ever used works this good.
Caution: Some cats get determined to twist themselves in a pretzel to lick this. I can caused them to foam at the mouth and make them hyper for about 24 hours after. Solution is easy. Take an old sock and trim the toes for an opening for kitty's head and the cut two arm holes. Makes a kitty' vest and will keep them from licking their shoudlers. Keep them in it for about 24-36 hours. No problems.

BEWARE OF COUNTERFEIT PRODUCTSMay 18, 2014
By Anthony Thomas
The Frontline plus for cats product I purchased via Amazon Marketplace was determined by the manufacturer to be COUNTERFEIT. The manufacturer, Merial, has requested this product be returned to them for analysis. I suggest that all parties who purchased Frontline products from USA Pet Supplies or any other re-seller on Amazon Marketplace contact Merial at 800-660-1842 to determine the authenticity of the product they received.
I have been using Frontline products for over six years. I am happy to report that the genuine product has worked well for me. All previous purchases were sold by and shipped from Amazon, directly.
At the very minimum, please check your product to verify that the LOT code on the box matches the LOT code on the individual applicator. Also, there is no expiration date for Frontline products.
Don't take a chance by using a potentially unknown or harmful counterfeit product on your pet. Take a few minutes of your time to verify the product you have is genuine by confirming with Merial.

Fake Product - Possibly DangerousSep 17, 2012
By Kate S.
In an attempt to save money on Frontline for my three cats, I purchased a 6-pack on here. I ordered it from Amazon because I did not feel comfortable purchasing it from a marketplace seller. Having used Frontline for years, I am very familiar with the product, its packaging, its odor, etc.
The box appeared normal. It was the older packaging, but that wasn't really a big deal. The product inside, however, was a major issue. The green vial/applicators were labeled as Frontline, but they did not have the same feel. When I attempted to snap one open, it bent without snapping. After trying several times, I finally cut it with scissors. I have never had this issue with Frontline that I've purchased from the vet - it has always cleanly snapped open.
Upon getting the product open, I was overcome by a strong skunky smell. This is a strong indication that there was something wrong. Frontline has a faint odor that is not unpleasant. This was a strong, horrible smell.
Consulting with my veterinarian, we determined that the product was actually fake. She stated that she had seen a couple other cases of animals that had been treated with counterfeit products and had become extremely ill, lost fur, and had seizures as a result.
The bottom line: Buy your Frontline from the vet. Your pet's health is not worth risking for a few dollars in savings.

So far works...Oct 12, 2010
By Yolanda Laguna
Product did not come in the usual box and separted portioned vials, it came in a small amber bottle with no markings and a syringe. Was totally not expecting that, there was no discription of that when I purchased it. However, in the package I received was the description of what it was and how much to use with the syringe. Was a little hesitant to use, because you never know, however so far it is working. The syringe/bottle method was pretty messy to use and I ended up spilling some of the contents.

What happened?Jun 28, 2008
By K. E. Bush
When this product first came out on the market it was THE flea control solution. However, over the last year or so I have had several people tell me it did not work for them.
We were going to a "Pet Friendly" hotel for Thanksgiving Holiday and taking our diabetic cat with us. I treated her with Frontline (I use Revolution on all my indoor/outdoor cats because it protects for heartworm and we have NOT had a problem until now!!!) about a week before we left. She came home with fleas and flea eggs. Not realizing it was Frontline Failure, I treated all my indoor only cats with frontline and treated the furniture and carpet. Three months of treatments later there are even more fleas! Frontline is NOT cheap and to keep spending money on a product while the fleas thrive is beyond frustrating.
I am hearing this same story more and more. I don't know if the fleas are becoming immune to the Frontline OR if the manufacturer has changed the ingredients. In either case, PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
The cats treated with Revolution never brought fleas into the house. I didn't use it for Annie because I thought it would be "over kill" to treat her for a multitude of parasites when all I was worried about were fleas and ticks.
FRONTLINE USED TO WORK, BUT IN MY EXPERIENCE IT DOESN'T ANY MORE.
Please note that many of the positive reviews for this product are from 2005/2006--back when it still worked.
