    Find the cheapest product online. Have the link ready and ring petmeds (see website). They will reduce any price , below theirs , by 5%. I prefer to phone, as you know excatly what you will pay. They are a genuine company and owned by a vet , who's onsite.

    Worm an adult every 3-4 months. I use Drontal Plus.

    I don't routinely treat for fleas, but have some Frontline spray. This needs a free prescription from your vet, but the spot-on pipettes, used on the neck, do not.

    This often depends on where you live. Here in Australia we worm our dogs every 3 months (more frequently for puppies under 6 months). I use Drontal all wormer. We heartworm them monthly. There are two popular products here - Heartguard or Proheart (tablet not injection). Then for fleas we use Frontline monthly or if in a tick prone area then fortnightly.

    I'd follow the advice of your vet re how often to administer these drugs, because geography is important.
