I have used frontline on both my cats & dog for many years. As Effipro has been so heavily advertised I thought due to the cost saving it was certainly worth a try. We are now 7 weeks in, completed two treatments (one being last week) and we have started to get flea bites & have a very itchy dog. Effipro may have the same active ingredients as Frontline but I have been very disappointed with its results. I now have to re-order Frontline.

This product has the same active ingredient as Frontline. As it states here on the website due to the life cycle of the flea using a spray for the home may also be necessary. It does not have the same action as the prescription only medicines such as Frontline Combo as this product can help break the life cycle of the flea not only just kill it.

Unlike the previous reviewer I love Effipro! I too used to use Frontline and had major problems with ticks - Frontline simply was not effective - and my vets opinion was that Frontline was excellent for fleas but "crap" for ticks. I tried Effipro after a great deal of thought and checking the active ingredient - and watched it sceptically as it was cheaper. My experience after months of use now is that Effipro prevents fleas (never had a problem) and is much more effective against ticks than Frontline. Now very few ticks actually manage to get a hold on and those that do are dead when I touch them. For me it is fantastic and better than Frontline - oh and there are no white marks on either my dogs or my cats coats as it is used for both the dogs and the cats.

Does not work as well as frontline, because this is cheaper I thought I'd give it a go, after week of first treatment my dog kept scratching and showing sings of fleas. Effipro also left white residue marks on her coat, a waste of money.
