Excellent

Not a bad price. It works.

None

It's that time of year again - fleas, bugs, ticks and the like. I've noticed my dog, Ollie, scratching quite a lot lately. (And now me after watching 'Aracnaphobia' on telly last night!). I've even managed to pick a couple of flea's off the poor dog and squash them! Urgh! So, on a recent trip to...

“Get them visitors jumping”

easy to use

none

Every couple of months we decided to make sure our dog did not get fleas or if he had a couple to put a stop to them before he got them or got more of them. We had tried shampoo but oh getting him to have a bath or catch him while he was having fun getting wet was very hard to do let alone put...

“Spot on”

published 19/04/2001

no more fleas

none

I find flea powders and sprays messy and the dog usually doesn't stand still long enough anyway. With a spot on liquid product it's very easy to use because you just snip the end off the small vial and apply to the skin on the top of the neck. The packs come in different sizes for different sized...

This product is unsafe and should be withdrawn from general sale. In my experience it is far more likely to cause your cat a horrible death through toxicity than to kill any fleas. It seriously is not worth the risk. Spend a little more on at a licensed pharmacy or vet practice and get a safe product that actually works with proper professional advice. Bob Martin Toxicity cases are so common that your average vets won't bat an eyelid if you mention it. Seriously do avoid this product. It rarely kills fleas and is more likely to kill your much loved pet.

Kills SOME fleas...Maybe

Does Not Get Rid Of All Fleas, VERY Harmful to Cat...

Bob Martin Flea Drops are a complete waste of time & money, because it basically does not work effectively. Because Bob Martins can be sold anywhere, it is only liscenced to kill up to 60% of fleas. The stuff from your vets (Advantage, Frontline, Stronghold) can only be sold by a vets, and that...

my kitten is 4 months old and has licked bob martin flea spot on off my dog with in 3 hours he was fitting. he is now in the vet and hope of him making it though are slim. when i went to by the flea stuff i wanted frontline but due to pets at home only having one person trained for this i couldnt get it as i went in the hours they did not work. my vet is very disappointed and says bob martin products should be taken off the shelves and advice should be given when it is sold. if anyone has any advice for me to help me though this please e-mail me at turketbottom@hotmail.com

Waste of money

Having tried the product recently on my two dogs due to not being able to get access to the vets to buy frontline I would have to say that I am totally unhappy with the effectivness of the product. This product does not kill fleas, does not break life cycles, and made one of my dogs itchy! The...

Bob Martin a well-known and 'trusted ' brand? Don't make me laugh! This product must've killed more cats in the UK than any other in the world. Its hugely dangerous, even if you apply the correct product! I've seen too many cats die and/or seizure from application of this awful stuff (I'm a vet nurse), surely it must be coming off the shelves soon?? BOB MARTIN: Kills your pet, not its fleas.

Do not use this stuff as it is highly poisonous to cats, it should not be on the shelves! I fleaed my dog with it and my year old cat licked the dog and it killed the cat! It should be banned, steer clear of it at all costs, only use what your vet reccommends.

We bought Bob Martins as well and it has'nt worked for us either. still getting fleas of the dog 4 days after it was appliedy. Waste of money should have gone for frontline.
