Hi there, have been on Mumsnet for yonks but rarely post and have forgotten my password so made a new account.

Anyway, have got a gorgeous little rescue and did her Broadline treatment yesterday, I can't find a definitive answer as to how often I need to do this as a preventative treatment - any ideas??

Every 4 weeks and you know it contains a wormer too, so fleas and worms done in one!

Brilliant! Thank you, don't suppose you know where the best place to buy it is?

Don't bother to buy it - my vet changing the recommendation to Broadline resulted in the worst flea infestation I've ever had. Went back to Advocate (and multiple house treatments with Indorex) to get back to a flea free house.
And both Advocate and Frontline require a vet's prescription.

Grumpy, Frontline doesn't need a vet's prescription but Broadline does. So, OP best to buy from vets. Anything you can buy from the chemist, pet shop, supermarket is absolute crap. They can only be sold through vets or with a prescription for a good reason.

Thanks all, I'll give the vets a bell in the morning.
