I used Effipro for over a year with no problems but recently it seems to have stopped working, I am now going to try Vet UK's own brand as Frontline doesn't work either.

I previously used Frontline and thought I try Effipro as it is cheaper.I used Effipro for a few months now and I'm not very happy with the product as my cats have fleas now and with Frontline they didn't so I guess I will have to go back to it and pay the extra. Its a shame and maybe the product will be improved and I might try it again.

After reading how fleas were getting immune to frontline chose Effipro, what a mistake after 2 applications only 2 weeks apart they still have fleas. I have never had fleas before in 30 years of cat breeding, I certainly won't be endorsing this product to new owners.

I do not understand why there are so many who say that Effipro is effective I have used Advantage for many years, but the last times it was not effective on a couple of my cats (I have 4). Therefore, I thought I would try a different brand and, after seeing all the good reviews I chose this. My cats had fortunately only a few fleas. They were each given it at Monday but today Friday they still have fleas So I am very disappointed with the product I have actually subsequently come to mind that I tried it last year - I had forgotten that - And it did not work at that time either So, a waste of money I think, I might go back to Advantage again and hope it will be better just as before.

I switched to effipro last summer when Frontline stopped working. I have been very pleased with the effect and the price. I had a small outbreak 2 weeks ago (hot hot weather) so used it a week earlier than the recommended 4 week interval, also washed his bedding daily and hoovered house on consectutive days during treatment window (week) and 'nit' combed him daily (he was fine until I tried his belly fur and tail) it has worked and 4 days on I only found dead fleas on combing and he has stopped scratching. So going to stick with this but may try 'advantage' next year as a rotation idea (they do the same with head lice teatments for children). As my cat is out and in all year round I likewise keep flea treatment every month regardless of season. When he has his annual check-up in the spring the vet has never found evidence of infestation so all good.

A good product - does what it says and keeps fleas and ticks to a minimum. Especially good for ticks, which our cats normally get covered in by May/June, but since using Effipro they haven't had a single one yet.
