Does Fronline work for anyone? Still seems to be working for us but paranoid that it will stop?

hi, I'm just wondering is Frontline (the one you have to get on prescription) is working for people? I use it on my cat and it seems to be ok (touch wood!) but I keep on reading that the buggers are coming resistant to it. So really panicking it is going to stop. Unfortunately have 4 months left otherwise would just get the other stuff recommended (advantage?).

So just currious really, are others not having problems with it? I am paranoid that I'm just missing them!

I am slightly OCD about flees

I've used it every month for 4 years without fail, except one month I forgot and got infested - the key is to use every month even in winter, esp if cats go out.
it may depend on where you live or their diet (this can affect their blood I guess) as my friend has 3 cats and does not do them every month and has not had a problem, plus they bring in allsorts of dead animals.....who knows
Mine brings mice in and they can carry fleas, so I do it every month, better safe than sorry!

Sadly it no longer works in this house. My Mum still uses it on her two though.

Word is that the local fleas are resistant to Frontline for dogs and everyone's having to change to Advantage. Haven't noticed any prob with knickerscat, but need to get more for her this month, may well get Advantage instead. Frankly depends on the price.
