after using frontline for years with success this year we got a flea infestation. I took one of the cats to the vet to get an injection to relieve his discomfort from itching, and got advocate from the vet, she said she had lost count of the number of customers who have had frontline failure this year, it seems to have lost its efectiveness, the advocate was what she recommended. So far the cats are flea free, and I am ordering more. Fleas on your cat can lead to tape worm and dehydration and depression- it can be very serious, keep your eye on your little four legged friends and give them the love and attention they deserve. I definately recommend this product. Remember to treat your home and car too.
