it's the friendly little nematodes!

I don't believe that the doses would be different because you break the big
one into 7 doses (as in Frontline Plus).  I was afraid to do this at first
because I thought it might somehow be different than the single doses but if
you think about it, there's no sediment at the bottom of the tube.  It's all
uniformly mixed so no possibility of different strengths from breaking up
the tube into smaller doses. What you are paying for in the standard cat
dose is the packaging.  You are paying for 3 plastic tubes instead of one
larger plastic tube.  I don't feel that plastic tubes are so great that  I
want to pay $15 extra above the cost of the ingredients.  I wish more stuff
was on a "bring your own bottle" basis.  Some stuff in the grocery store is
sold that way - peanut butter, honey, some cosmetics.  Everything else is
over-packaged so that when you finish your juice or your ketchup or
whatever, you either toss the package, bottle  into the landfill or you have
to lug it to recycle if you don't live in a city with curbside pick-up.  I
have been breaking Frontline Plus and Revolution into cat size doses for
years.  Haven't tried Advantage though because it goes by weight and that's
a little more work intensive, since I have several cats who can't fit
through the doorway and several more who could slip through the keyhole.



Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty
neighbors too!

The vet will make much more money if you give individual doses. I cannot do
this as I have 24 rescued cats at this time, and at $15. a pop, every month,
I'd be broke in no time, so I buy flea stuff from CAnada or overseas and
dose down from the big dog size.  However, dosing down from the big dog
size MUST be carefully figured out so the cats are not hurt.
