lotsofcats: gillycat, I had to do the flea treatment on my lot the other night and I can't understand how the cats all hate it so much. The 2 worse ones are the Maine Coons - OMG! I just realised I forgot to do Toffee!!! Sept 11, 2015 8:24:37 GMT
milliepup04: Haha! Too many cats, you lost count! Sept 11, 2015 20:49:14 GMT
gillykat: (rofl) It happens :P I have the monthly date marked on the calendar in the kitchen and get the pipettes ready when both girls are asleep. Close living room door so they're trapped then it's simply a case of grab, cuddle and squirt :D They hate it! :: Sept 11, 2015 21:46:36 GMT
ebony: I have to do Tigger first because she's the drama queen out of both of them (rofl) Ebony just looks at me with a "whatever" expression on her face and does a little shake after it goes on but Tigger insists it's deadly poison and shakes and scratches Sept 11, 2015 22:13:55 GMT
ebony: before it even touches her neck - literally as its leaving the pipette (rofl) Sept 11, 2015 22:14:40 GMT
gillykat: They'd soon complain if we didnt do it and they were all loppy with fleas!!! :-X Sept 13, 2015 8:27:28 GMT
ebony: Anyone know any spot on stuff for worms? I got some off amazon but it only does tapeworms and Ebony stresses out about worming tablets so tablets for roundworms isn't really ideal :-* Sept 13, 2015 11:20:54 GMT
caz2golden: Ebony what about Advocate for cats? http://www.vetuk.co.uk/pet-meds-prescription-only-advocate-for-cats-c-21_702/advocate-for-small-cats-p-770 Sept 13, 2015 17:16:56 GMT
gillykat: Advocate is what I use on my two. Chilli is a large cat and Lily classed as small (yet just 1lb between them!) and it cost me £67 for 3 months' treatment from my vet last time. Probably a bit cheaper online so I'll be looking around for next months' dose Sept 13, 2015 18:22:11 GMT
tonib: We use Profender spot-on wormer for the 2 cats that won't take tablets but it has to be prescribed by a vet. We use Advocate as a spot-on flea treatment for the other 2 who can react to Frontline but it doesn't cover all the worms so use Drontal as well. Sept 13, 2015 21:59:15 GMT
lotsofcats: I buy Advocate online without a prescription but it takes 10 days to arrive as it comes from Australia but it is reasonably priced - on offer at the moment 3 x small cat for £21.99 or 3 x large cat for £22.99. The company is Atlantic Pet Products. Sept 14, 2015 9:18:26 GMT
