    Where does everyone buy their worm tablets and flea oil? Is it safe to buy it over the internet or best off going to the vet/pet shop?

    usually vets as found most pet shop treatments not very effective and often have to spend more at vets to get stuff that works.

    we have some from the vets, and some i get when we are at some of the shows we attend, buy it in bulk as we have 3 dogs and a cat, it's the same stuff as you get at the vet but a fraction cheaper, not bought any off the internet, so can't help there. The shows we get it from have a direct supplier at the shows so we know we are getting the right stuff etc.:)

    I buy both mine from the vets.
    It's a lot cheaper than buying it from a pet shop.
    But my vet have a non-profit policy, so everything is a lot cheaper than other vets.
