Our expert says:
This spot on type products available from your veterinarian (like the Frontline you mention) is by far the safest and most effective options available to us these days. It is a simple matter of a few drops of this product on the back of the neck, applied monthly. These products should ideally not be applied to within four days after a bath, and the cat should not be bathed for four days after applying. Thereafter, the product would have entered into the skin and bathing has less effect on it. Please note that this is not the same as the spot on organophosphate type products available from supermarkets for dogs (EXTREMELY poisonous to cats).
