I took my cats to the vets yesterday and while I was there I mentioned about protection against ticks for my dogs. I currently use advocate spot on against fleas and worms at the moment but after all the news about the illness that ticks can cause I checked the advocate and realised it didn't cover for this. The vet has recommended taking them off advocate and using a seresto collar and tablets for the worms. She wouldn't give me the advocate that's for ticks as its toxic to cats!. Anyway she told me that the collar lasts against fleas and ticks for 8mths! Sounds too good to be true! Just wondering if anyone has ever used one and what they think and also if not what treatments you all use to combat fleas,ticks and worms.
