Probably a stupid question but I treat my cat every month with Frontline (have been doing so for years and it works) but one of my local independent shops is having a promotion on Bob Martin spot on treatment as he is "testing the waters" as he said to see how popular it is amongst his other items for cats (litter, treats, food).

The one he's offering is Flea Cat Spot On 24 weeks and its £5 a pack. I thought this seemed quite reasonable.

My question is can I change treatments? Or do I need to stick with Frontline?

A variety of medicated sprays

A variety of medicated sprays are available to kill fleas. You should choose best product  that provide long-lasting effects. Before starting any medical therapy contact your veterinarian. For my cat, I use shampoos, collars, flea sprays as suggested by the veterinarian.

Flea issues

I have always used the flea collar for my cats, but my cats are indoors only. The collar worked just fine so far. When I had to travel with my cat from the US to Europe, she had to be dewormed and she received Front Line for the first time. This was mid-January and so far she still has no fleas at all, so I did not use a new anti-fleas collar. I am wondering if she actually could get fleas if she spends her life only in my apartment. Do I have to still use Front Line but maybe more seldom?

I don't trust any one else

I don't trust any one else other than Frontline. When it comes to flea treatment in Pets, Only Frontline come to my head. Their Frontline Spot On Flea treatment for Cats is really good.

  I'd say stick to what you


I'd say stick to what you know works so if you use frontline stick with that. The Mr Pets website seems to have the cheapest frontline I’ve seen, they also sell the prescription variant of frontline which most online stores don't:
