Bob Martin flea drops for dogs (http://www.bobmartin.co.uk/) are SERIOUSLY toxic to cats.
There is an ingredient in them called permethrin, which as far as I am aware, is only in the Bob Martin brand.
If you accidentally put the dog flea drops onto your cat, it will cause them a horrible death.

Even if your cat comes into contact with a dog who has these drops put on them, it can still be toxic.

God knows how this can still be for sale.

This is NOT a scare story. My sister is a vet nurse, and she has seen this happen to many cats.
Last night, she watched another one die from this.
There is not much awareness of this.
If you have a dog, I strongly advise you to avoid this brand, especially if you also have a cat.

Well its good that we don't get fleas up here, I've never used any flea/tick products on my dog. But now I will definitely stay away from that brand. Thank you for the info!
