View Full Version : flea treatment

31st July 2009, 09:43 AM
our vet lives in the village and pops round to treat reuben for minor things. For larger things she uses the surgery of a big vets in the nearest town.

she flead and wormed him about 2 months ago.

would it be cheaper for me to just buy the stuff over the counter at a vets do you think? and also, how much would it be roughly?

Almost certainly it would be cheaper as aren't you paying for a full vet visit? -- you just pop a pill in their food for worming and flea treatments involve emptying a tube of insecticide above their shoulder blades. Instructions will be on the packet. You need to know the weight of your dog and be sure to use the correct size.

You can also generally get these treatments cheaper from online vet suppliers in the UK -- maybe someone will post a link to a reputable one.
