Now that's the kind of post I like - good news. The questin is not
the cost, but how does it stack up when you add up ivermectin drops
for ear mites, Heartgard for heratorm, and Advantage or Frontline for
fleas? Seems much more likely to result in owner compliance, than
having to give two or three medications....

Well I'm off to look up the bad report from the FML ( a responsible
journalist must cover both sides of every story...)

Welcome aboard!
