    It's best to get your vet to recommend one for you.

    There isn't one that does everything.

    Advocate covers fleas, ear mites, mange, various worms inc french heartworm but not ticks and tapeworm.

    Broad spectrum wormers are Drontal, panacur and milbemax covering all but french heartworm and none cover fleas and ticks.

    Frontline covers ticks and fleas but is not a wormer.

    I have recently switched to Advocate as I live in an area that has had cases of french heartworm, however, I also use drontal to cover tapeworm. I remove ticks manually so don't have anything to cover them.

    Best to get your vet to give you it....we get Panacur from ours x
     
  6. Depending on what breed your dog is best to check with you vet as some breeds are sensitive to certain wormers, cannot remember which ones off the top of my head but Sallyanne or Dundee may be able to advice!

    whichever wormer you choose DONT buy from vet! Pet Drugs Online will be half the price! If you choose a combination flea and worm treatment you will need a written prescription, but frontline or effipro and drontal/panacur do not need prescriptions and will probably work out cheaper in the long run while doing the same job.
