Never use this product!!!
Never use this product. Within 30mins our cat started scratching profusely to the point of drawing blood around her legs. We’ve given her a wipe down with a wet flannel and hopefully this will ease her reaction but she’ll still a bit distressed!!!
It's the WORST product I've ever seen in my entire life!!!!
It's terrible what that crap can do to your pet. Bought this weeks ago to applied to my 3 month old kittens and it absolutely destroy them. I've applied it to my 3 kittens and also to an area which they cant lick and I've been keeping them apart and under observation. My mistake i haven't read the reviews before buying it. But lesson learned. My kittens were the most playful and happy kittens, eat drink properly and in good health. Few hours after applying that one of my kitten started to feel weak and was just sleeping while her brothers were ...cheerful and playing, I though maybe she's just tired and is resting. Some hours later i decided to wake her up cause she been sleeping much more than usual and for her to feed herself. I called her several times and wasn't responding which isn't in her usual. When i went to see her nearby to look at her, she was weak at a point she couldn't even open her eyes and barely move, she was breathing fast and was shivering as if she was cold. I got so scared and after few hours, another kitten started to be weak as well and both of them kept on sleeping, can't barely move and is trembling. At night the last one who were still cheerful and playing around, he usually likes to sleep next to me, I can put him to his bed when he's fast asleep he'll always wake up and come back next yo me in my bed, so i let him sleep next to me as the other 2 were not well just to keep an eye and in the middle of the i heard him meowing and when i woke up he was still next to me meowing, i didn't know what was wrong and he started to vomit, but not much and since that he is also sick not eating drinking anything and is weak. All 3 of them were so weak and even their face look sick and I can feel they are weak they barely move and as if they are in pain they meow whenever they move, so I decided to handfeed them, and had to force a lil bit but By God's grace the 2 that got sick before. They are able to move and I cam feel they are much better. But the one who vomits is still not eating and nothing and is weak. I'm doing everything possible to get him as well back on his feet cause he was crawling to his litterbox which literally breaks my heart, now he meows for me to take him to it cause he can't crawl to it even though its next to him. I just pray to God he gets better too. But I'm doing everything possible to get him as well back on his feet. And I have faith. But words can't describe how crap this products is and the funniest part is that it doesn't do anything to the fleas. They are still the same. I wouldn't recommend anyone to use that, cause all cats are not the same and some can't get worst. Be careful
Gave me anxiety
So I put this on the cats as directed, and immediately they started scratching profusely. I could not get them to stop.
So I called the vet and they told me it was a terrible product and to wash it off them immediately. Once I had done that, i have to watch them for 24 hours based on bad reactions other animals have had from this product. I'm absolutely gob smacked at how bad it is. I've had to cancel my day trip tomorrow to make sure I'm home to watch the poor cats
If I could give this negative stars, I would
I normally use Frontline plus due due to not being able to get hold of any from the vet due to people panic buying a years supply, I was temporarily unable to.
First of all I applied this treatment according to the instructions, the product did nothing other than make the cats fur oily over the next few hours and make her throw up several times even though the treatment was not applied in a place she could lick it off.
It did nothing at all to kill fleas, eggs or larvae at all, in fact within 36 hours it seemed to make the problem so much...worse, as well as making the cat fall ill. Do not use this product on your pets, it is just poisoning them and doing nothing adverse to the fleas, eggs or larvae. I did manage to track down a better product (Frontline Plus) which was not that much more expensive, spend the extra few dollars on a decent product people instead of this crap.
POISON! DO NOT USE!
I gave the flea tablet to my cat and within one day she has become incredibly sick, she can hardly move and has been vomiting a scary amount. I have a vet coming and pray she can make it through this! Never use this on your cat if you want them to live!
This product should be banned!
I always buy advantage but was short on cash and went to woolies and bought Purina on the spot flea control. Last night I noticed my 13 year old female cat really itching and biting her fur looking very agitated so I found all of these reviews and couldn’t believe how many people have had the same experience! I washed it off with a face towel but this morning I’ve noticed my 15 year old male cat shaking his head and all weak and lopsided! I called the vet and she told me to wash it off immediately and stay well away from this product that it ca...uses seizures!!!! I’m beside myself and so upset I cannot believe Woolworths sells this product and that’s it allowed to be sold!!!! My poor babies!!! I am going to contact consumers affairs this is bad.
