I'm after poop bags, not sure how much to spend, is there a particular brand fellow mse members always go for.


Is there a particular website you buy your accessories eg flea treatments from ?

    Wilkos poo bags, as they are thick enough to not have your fingers go through them (think they were 50p)! Good for dog bowls etc too. Usual cost is about £1 per item.

    Flea treatment I get from pets at home or a supermarket. As I'm a loyalty point gal :D

    I use Aldi nappy sacks.
    The comments I post are my personal opinion. While I try to check everything is correct before posting, I can and do make mistakes, so always try to check official information sources before relying on my posts.

    Pound shop ones are normally fine.
    Flea treatments from the vet. Don't touch flea collars or cheap flea treatments with a bargepole. The last time I used one it caused an open sore on the dog's neck overnight.
    Pets at home are overpriced for pretty much everything.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Tesco Everyday Value nappy bags. 300 in the pack. Couldn't remember the price so just looked on their website and they cost 35p.

    They smell lovely (well, before you use them :D )

    We use the Tesco poo bags. Think they cost about £1 for 75.

    Flea treatments and worming treatments we get from our vets as part of the health care plan.

    I normally get ours from Poundstretcher but by the sound of it the next lot will be nappy bags (thank you tacpot12 and Battybird!)

    Flea-wise, currently I get Effipro from VetUK

    Value nappy sacks from whichever supermarket I happen to be in 30p ish for 100. Fine for small dogs , if I had a massive beast I might buy the regular non value own brand nappy sacks as they are slightly larger.

    I have never ever had fingers go through any nappy bag in 30 odd years of dog owning !

    We pay for a monthly plan at vets which covers vacc's, flea and worm and a discount of various meds and treatments etc £12 a month for small dogs more for larger beasts. Saved loads off the oldies regular meds.
