Our vet, who we've had since we came here, has retired. He has handed his business over to the only other vet in Mirande. I went there for a worming tablet for our bc, and she (the secretary) sold me the one I asked for, (Nexgard), and another 2 tablets called cestem-f. Has anyone heard of these?
I had the feeling vets are encouraged to promote new products by salesmen. I was even a bit suspicious of Nexgard when our old vet prescribed it last year, expensive, but our dog loves them because they're tasty and chewy.

I don't know those wormers, PatF. Ours get Drontal P and Veloxa which cover a range of worms - they're expensive too, but seem to do the trick.
I think they try to vary the wormer used to stop resistance. It might be worth googling your wormers to see what they are.

I have googled the name and all that's given is the chemical contents.
Perhaps they're similar to yours, Blaze, covering a range of worms.
I've only given her one up to now, see how she is.

If they've given you two different kinds, it's probably because the different worm varieties require a different treatment. It's the same with horses (and it costs a fortune !!!)
