    Advocate 80 for cats - flea treatment 18th May 17 at 9:18 AM
    Attempted to buy the following as it is highway robbery when buying from the VET, however they replied to say a prescription is required. I sent a copy of the previous prescription when we bought it from the VET (and got fleeced) the first time and so assumed that would be enough, apparently not. Anyone bought this off the web and had similar issues? This is something that is required every month therefore surely we don't have to get the same prescription from the VET on a monthly basis? Although I wouldn't be surprised as it is an easy little income stream for them.

    Never had the need but I think you are able to ask the vet to write a prescription for 3 months supply (maybe 6?) but of course you will need to pay for that!
    Despite that it still may work out cheaper to buy online
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!
