I was always under the impression the otc worming treatments are not particularly effective.
Our dog is treated with Stronghold, which is prescription only. It's a spot on which deals with fleas, ticks, ear mites and worms apart from tapeworms, which require a separate pill. I think it's about £25 for a 3 month supply.
I don't think £10 sounds too dear tbh.

I get mine as part of the vet plan I have so I pay £16 per month and that includes all worming/flea/tick treatment. 15% of anything I buy at the vets including consultations/surgery etc. And two free checkups a year. I use nexgard spectra each month which does worms (including lung worm), ticks and fleas.

When you said £10 each is that per month? What weight is your dog as medication is dearer depending on the size of your dog? And what did they recommend?

Vet receptionists quoted me £10 each!!
Any advice for a cheaper alternative?
