Never tried them Penny and would imagine they work out more expensive than normal worming even if they do work. It says to give them daily. I worm my cats 2-3 times a year, don't think I want to add yet another daily chore to my long list.

You wouldn't/couldn't use these things for kittens.

Advocate is a wormer and flea killer all in one. Don't use on young kittens under the age of 9 weeks or weakly kittens. It treats most parasites except tape worm. I've used it for a long time it is a POM treatment. If the vet has seen one of your cats in the last 6 months they should let you have them over the counter. Penny :D

The trick with POM wormers is to buy a year's worth when you go in for boosters - or anything. us breeders have ALWAYS been to the vet within the last 6 months so can usually get them whenever we need. For those with only one or two cats it may take a little more forethought :D

Exactley Toadvs. Even if you only have one cat you can still buy a dozen in one go. :lol: If you have 2 small cats the large size will do the two, however you can still buy enough for two individuals. Unless they start weighing them.Penny :D

I used to have this issue with Frontline whilst it was still POM. I used to have to be quite clever with the timing :roll:
