    I do agree that it would be nice if one treatment did them all!! Lots easier

    we switched from frontline to advocate. Our vets charged 6 for each prescription but you are able to use each prescription repeated three times. we used to order ours from petmeds and would just buy all the meds in bulk ...it would work out cheaper to buy it that way

    Hi Brian,

    Our four girls are also on ADVOCATE once a month, this does the fleas and worms apart from one worm......tapeworm (which is transmitted by fleas).

    They also have a drontal tablet to cover the tapeworm every 3-4 months

    If you want to cover from ticks aswell then you need ADVANTIX instead of the above ( we were advised by the vets to have the advantix when the weather gets warmer in the summer months or if they are walked in long grass).

    We pay 33 per month for the advocate for the four of them and the drontal is 2.71 per tablet.I also did what you are doing and tried to find it cheaper online but we worked out by the time we had paid 4 x10 for prescription charges and then p & p we were actually better off staying with the vets and getting them weighed and checked over at the same time.
    Needless to say our vets LOVE us!!!

    Hope this has helped to give you some idea of what we pay.

    Ahh I didn't know the fancy name for lungworm I knew it didn't treat one of them though!! ( Thinking back to Cassies puppy check she recommended Advocate as puppies tend to eat things they shouldn't) As Barney and Taylor the cat are treated with this I stuck to the same...3 for the price of 2 helped a bit!!
