Purina Total care spot on Flea control
I used this product on both of my dogs, about two weeks ago, they have been scratching all the time, their skin has broken out, one around his neck and not where his collar is, and the other around his backside. I found 1 flee on one of them. Yes it has stopped any more flee's but how come he has one still on him. I bathed them both and they still have the itchy skin. I am going back to revolution. My lesson has been learnt. My poor stressful boys...
Absolutely Useless !
Have used this for several months and the fleas have never been happier ! Very expensive product and has no effect on fleas ! Have been using a flea comb to monitor activity and have seen constant flea activity even immediately after treatment. Would not recommend this product and have since started trialling other brands....
We have applied it twice to our dog and every day he still has live fleas. We have treated his bedding and coat with flea powder, sprayed surface spray around all the areas where he spends time, but the poor chap is still scratching. Waste of money. For $30 I expected better results.
It simply is ineffective in killing fleas
DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT
This product is the WORST on the market. DO NOT EVER BUY THIS PRODUCT ! This is just supermarket brand flea treatment. I would like to squirt this product in the eyes of the people who make this stuff and promote it as safe. I will be returning the empty packet to the store for a full refund. Seriously DO NOT EVER BUY THIS PRODUCT.
Made both cats very ill
Waste of money
We also bought this without realizing it didn't kill fleas. It hasn't helped at all and we had to resort to buying flea powder. we also bought the Total Care powder that hasn't helped either. total waste of money. I'm going back to the vet and getting something better probably revolution. I wont be buying ant total care product again.
didnt kill fleas badly misleading. People buy flea treatments to kill and prevent fleas!
3 days after putting the product on my one and a half year old cat it burnt the skin on my cats neck & he lost fur. I have washed him and will now have to take him to the vets to see what he recommends. Disappointed as it wasn't cheap to buy. I should have gone to the vets in the first place.
Must be strong to burn their skin
I used this product with out realising it doesn't kill adult fleas so I then had to go to the vet and get a spot on that does actually kill them. This product was pointless as I could have just purchased the product from the vet in the first place. I would't buy this flea product again. I recommend buying the vet products first.
Cheaper than the vet products and can be purchased at the supermarket.
It doesn't kill the fleas it just stops them from producing more eggs so the adult fleas are still alive and biting your cat.
i'm a veterinary nurse from victoria, i had a client use this prduct on a 12 week old kitten, within 1 hour the kitten started showing signs of toxicity, the client confirms that the kitten did not lick the product, she washed the kitten, and took it to an emergency centre, on arrival the kitten was open mouth breathing, seizuring, and non responsive.
As a result of this product the kitten was deemed untreatable and was Euthanased.
I urge pet owners to be very aware of supermarket products i understand that they are cheaper than the products ...
I put this on my six month old puppy this morning he was throwing up from it also. He did not lick the product either! He has been sick all day, I took him to the vet and I was told to keep an eye on him! I don't recommend this at all, I hope my puppy will be okay! I don't rate this product!
Ok for some, perhaps not all
I have 4 cats. i only use it on one of my cats as there is no way she will take anything orally. It works perfectly on her. I use capstar on the others especially my youngest girl. No spot on treatment of any kind works on her. Revolution, Frontline have been tried and she still gets has lots of fleas, oral medication is what I use on her and they seem to work. My kitten is using capstar also until he is a little older then I will try the spot on treatments.
inexpensive and works
Worried about giving it to my 8 week kitten after reading reviews
