In the spring Drs. Foster & Smith always have a sale on flea treatments. After you pay shipping to ship over seas I don't know if you'd save much money though. For me it's a lot cheaper than the Vets. :)

http://www.vetuk.co.uk have the above package for 25.77 (with free postage) and are very reliable. This isn't a special offer, just normal prices :) I think most online places are cheaper than vets!

Hi

I note you all like me still use Frontline ,and I know the question has been put before but is the overall opinion still that Frontline is the preferred choice ahead of all others.

You have to phone them for the Gabapentin and they order it for you. Also have to send them a prescription, it usually only takes a couple of days. I would try to get a scrip for 2 or 3 months supply as you usually have to pay to get one nowadays.

Frontline stopped working for Charlie McFarlie when he was around 5.
The poor guy was itching and we didn't realize the treatment just wasn't working anymore. I switched to Advantix and it works great.

www.medicanimal.com have decent prices and loads of stuff to chose from, you will need to provide a perscription and they deliver in a few days :thmbsup:

I have used Stronghold for some years now. It's a little cheaper than Frontline and also contains an effective wormer and protects against ear mites. My late Hattie had terrible infestations of mites before I used Stronghold, but was free of them within a couple of weeks.

Stronghold is a prescription only product but there are many on line suppliers who will dispense at a lower price than the vet.

I use Stronghold. I get it from my vet and for my three it costs me 16 every month what I think is expensive.

We switch out between advantage and frontline plus. We use one for the winter and one for the summer. We think its kind of like hair stuff for you. If you use the same stuff all the time, your hair gets used to it and it just seems to need a change. Sounds crazy, but I know a few people that do this.

But it is all expensive, but it worth no fleas!

My vet asked me to try Programme plus on my cocker spaniel but I wasn't very keen on it, he still had a few bouts of fleas.
When I went back to the vet and said I wasn't too happy with it she put him back on Frontline and gave me a free month!
I guess different things work for different dogs.
