PETS HELP ASAP!
« on: June 24, 2004, 05:36:35 PM »
Okay... the certificate for tick and tapeworm says to treat them with a USA recognized tick regime.

So does Frontline/Advantage count?  I know you can't use a collar or anything like that, but my vet and I were wondering what others have used.

Thanks!

Now I'm no expert in the PETS program, but why wouldn't Frontline be OK? It's used massively over here... we just started our girlies on it.  :)

Tell your vet to refer specifically to the Defra Information Sheet for Vets so they know specifically which medication to use and not use. This can not be done by yourself, it has to be done through your vet and certified by him/her.

My dog did have Frontline plus for ticks and Dronset for tapeworm. I just referred to my sheet.

Yes, Frontline is fine.  My vet put it on Spucky.  He's now chasing moths and baby shrews in Scotland.
When I find a funnier sig than twistedncynical's, it will be here.

Update... my vet put Frontline which was fine... unfortunately he used Cestex for tapeworms... and they were denied at ARC so... they are stuck there for 24 hours and we had to pay the UK vet to come out and do it....
