There was a recent post about ticks. One of the things several people mentioned was brewer's yeast. I took a look at veterinary research reports and probably two thirds of the reports say it works for fleas, the rest are either 'jury out' or negative reports. As for ticks, just about all the reports say it it is unlikely to work, including those specifically looking for alternatives to Frontline, etc.
So back to square one for some of us. I am worried that Frontline is losing effectiveness, certainly our cats have had as many ticks since the last application as they would probably have without. I called our vet this morning and he thinks that this is more to do with the cats (and/or dogs) than the treatment. He recommended trying spot on and having a spray available for occasional boosters. I am willing to give it a try given how this year has been thus far.
Do any of you know where I can order online to save a bit of money. I go to the vet with my cheque book at high risk and the pharmacy or Bricomarché marginally better. I am looking for where I can order for two weights of dog, cats plus spray in six packs and the biggest spray size for the rest of this year in one go at the maximum saving. There is usually somebody out there who has done things like this and given that Merial do not do direct sales and veterinary suppliers I have found only supply to licenced vets I am running out of ideas where to look.
