    About the same as a decent quality spot-on product (we sell them for a few pence more than we sell a Frontline Combo)

    Either one month or three months, depending on the product.

    The drug companies have spent millions testing the products to get a licence. Too soon for any failure reports.

    I think spot-ons will become a thing of the past. So easy to use on the dog. I don't care if a little more expensive.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    I was quoted £28.78 per tablet from mine lasting three months. Vet recommends these more if your dog is going to be more involved with rivers.
    Also said that this will be in their immune system as opposed to drops on their coat.
