    have i done my maths right please???


    drontal £1.79 x 3 cats = £5.37 x 4 (every 3 months) = £21.48

    fiprospot £10 for 3 cats x 12 (one per month each) = £120

    booster vacs - lexie £27 kobi £27 (both can go pdsa) milie £36 (no space on my pdsa account)

    all equals - £231.48 per year - divided by 52 = £4.45 per week

    have i done everything right??

    how good is that hey!! im happy with that, gimmie more cats!!!!!!

    personally I'd go for Advantage - never heard of Fibrospot and no idea if it is any good - and http://www.medicanimal.com/product/...ts-dogs-and-rabbits-4-pipettes/~product_id=11 this is actually slightly cheaper £10.90 for 4 pipettes - so 9 packets a year would cost you £98.10 saving you £21.90 a year.

    I'd say that is a bit of a trek for both you and the cats. Especially if it is a rainy day... :( Have you got a chum with a car?

    I see that the Long Eaton clinic is only on Wed afternoons - did you note that?

    wednesday is fine and i dont mind the trek once a year unless it would upset the cats, £45 to vacine 3 cats instead of £90, ooooh what would you do????

    do you have to be on benefits, my friend with dogs might take me and get hers done too, but she works

    No, you don't have to be on benefits. They are just an ordinary vets. The woman who owns the chain is trying to provide good, efficient, friendly vet care at decent, honest low prices. :)

    Kinley.....you may well find that it really is not necessary ( or desirable ) to use the flea treatments every month.
    Are your cats all indoor or is that just Millie?
    I would get either Indorex or RIP and do the whole house, it lasts up to 12 months and then really only use the spot on if you think one of them actually has fleas.
    better for your purse and your pets this way!
