Repeat cat flea medication
in Pets & pet care

Hi all, just wanted to know if this is other peoples experience, we get a repeat prescription for flea medication for our 2 cats from the vets, have done for years, however now they have changed the policy and saying they won’t prescribe unless they’ve seen the cats every 12 months , which they hate, on a recent visit they took the opportunity to try and flock us all kinds of things and it felt like an opportunity to try and get more money out of it. So, is this a real thing that vets need to see the cats every 12 months or , being a very cynical person, a new money making scheme?

Each vet decides what that interval is- very often it is 6 months.
You could consider using a non prescription product.
If you're unhappy with other aspects of their services, you can change vet - but I'd expect most to have similar rules about seeing pets every once in a while for repeat prescriptions. If nothing else, lots of meds for animals have different dosages for different weights.
