So my cat got the hump when we recently moved house, and diasappeared for a couple of weeks, only coming back for food and reusing to come indoors. She's now started trying to come back in, so I've been letting her in the garage, it not the actual house just because I don't want her inside until I know she's clear of fleas, ticks and worms!
Have an appointment with he vet nurse this afternoon, but how much is flea/worm/tick treatment from the vet likely to cost? We've always just bought spot-ons from pet stores so have no idea!!

I am dong a monthly payment scheme, its £11 a month and covers all flea and worm treatments, vaccinations, health checks plus 10% off all other treatments. Might be worth asking about, no idea about one off prices though sorry.

I joined the payment scheme today smile £10 per month which gets me all flea/worm/tick treatments, vaccination, bi-annual health checks etc, so didn't pay a penny today smile

We've given her the dose of treatment the vet gave me yesterday, I've been advised to keep letting her in the garage and to wash all her bedding in there on a 90 wash. Vet said there would be no point in letting her in the house straight away, because she will bring the fleas she's got into the house. I need to break the cycle of fleas in the garage, and on her which could take a couple of weeks. So I've put a hot water bottle under a blanket in her bed, and put a little halogen heater in the garage so she's not cold and will wash all her bedding today smile
Got to take her back to the vet for vaccination boosters in a week, so I'll ask the vet to check how the flea situation is going then

Is she not likely to just get the hump and go off again if she's only allowed in the garage?

Just buy a flea comb and comb her regularly. It's better to keep her in the house and the spot on treatment will kill any fleas that are in the house. She'll be a walking assassinsmile

She's been quite happy for the last few days with her food, litter tray, old Moses basket to sleep in with a hot water bottle and a little space heater smile she's been out everyday and come back into the garage when she wants to. I've started the process of clearing the garage of fleas but I won't have her back in until I'm 100% confident they are all gone. I have a toddler and a newborn, and last time she was in the house and had fleas, my poor DD got bitten loads sad
