Same as that, I have all my cats on the vet Pet plan, I pay £11 per month each, but it saves me about 1/3 of costs for all the routine treatments. jabs, flea treatment (Advocate) and Milbemax. Now  just have to find an insurance for 5 cats that includes dentals.

Any suggestions welcome. :)

I have always used Advocate and then vet gives Milbemax for tapeworm.

Just Googled and came across this.

I usually get milbemax pills from the vet to ensure tapeworms covered.

Flea and Worming treatments

Hi
I've just recently got one of my cats a prescription to Advocate as he had possible ear mites.  I don't believe he did although we don't know what the issue was but it was treated with drops and they don't irritate him anymore, but I didn't realise that advocate was the only treatment available for ear mites and liked that it also covered fleas and worms.  However I can see from their website it doesn't cover tapeworm, and that the only treatment available for lice is frontline.  Confused.com!  Does anyone use more than one treatment to make sure everything is covered?
Thanks
