Mites. Ticks. Worms. Fleas. Our animals get them all. And if you don't kill them, they can kill your animals. So today we treated the cats for fleas. We do it once a month with Advantage. Lots of people do this, and if you do, I think I have a tip for you that will save you money.
Here's our cat Peanut:
You can buy one dose of flea medicine for about $7.00 on line. This is for cat size or large dog size--they both cost about the same. So Mom buys the large dog size and pours it into a vial and then uses a syringe to get the correct size dose for our cats.
This way she gets about 5 cat-sized doses from the large dog size dose. This cuts her cost to one fifth of what it would be over the cat size dose. I hope that makes sense!
Mom says you can buy the vial and syringe on Ebay and maybe Amazon. And she says make sure you get Advantage, not Advantix.
