Hi, I have a 5 month old Alaskan Malamute and he's due for a worming, I know this is optional but I want to make sure he's healthy. Money is tight at the moment so I want the best but cheapest option.

I've had a look at the Pets at Home website and around ebay but I didnt realise how many variations there were. Yes he's a puppy but he's well over the 8kg weight restriction on some of the packs and there's all sorts of milligrams (mg).

I want a trusted brand which is why I haven't just gone out and bought a random tablet, problem is I'm still kind of new to the whole looking after a dog thing as I was only 10 when we had our other dog (a chihuahua, yes that's a bit of a difference lol) Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

I buy all out dogs worning and flea treatments from here. We use drontal. The site will ask you the weight etc of your dog. All pretty straight forward. Cheap prices and quick delivery. I have never had a problem with them.

Whatever you do , dont use Bob Martin worming tablets.Our Lhasa Apso pup was poisened by one .We used the correct tablet & dosage.Thankfully he made a full recovery , but he was seriously poorly for a week . Bob Martin reimbursed me my vet fees , with no liability of course.

Eeek! I was looking to buy the Bob Martin one's until they confused me with the milligrams. Think I'll just use their poop bags from now on then lol Glad your dogs ok though poor thing.

Thanks for the link Katyem, I shall have a look. Although Storm (the Puppy) was actually weighed at the vets last month and was 10kg exactly. He's a bit of a huge puppy really and he actually doesn't eat his recommended daily intake, he just eats what he wants and leaves the rest. But he is getting better and eating properly now and in less then a month his daily intake will go up. He's gonna be HUGE!

I don't get this, he's gonna cost you a fortune to feed and you're worried about the cost of his worming tablets?

I think everyone is entitled to the companionship of some sort of pet,but if you are worried about the cost of a few worming tablets I don't really think a dog is for you as any size of dog is going to cost you literally thousands of pounds in vets bills,healthcare and proper nutrition during its,hopefully,long life.Better off with a goldfish I think.

Erm do you not think I'm sourcing the cheapest option for everything? Maybe I've sorted the cost of food? I've been paying 10 a pill plus 27 vet check up everytime so the wormin tablet is a massive save. I haven't only just got the puppy, Ive had him since he was 10 weeks old. It's only now that money is tight as it's the time of year were all my car costs have to come out.

Please don't assume that, I've just decided I want a dog and haven't done any research in to the breed or costing exercises. I can afford the dog and will put him before anything, I just want to be a little more comfortable with my money and since I work my arse off for the money I earn which most is taken by the tax man I'm well and truely entitled to do what I like with my money. The savings will more then likely buy toys etc for him and before anyone says, he is not home alone whilst I work. I see that puppy as my child and wouldnt dream of leaving him alone, I want to give him the world and in order to do this I will have to make saving where possible.

Who wouldn't source the best for their dog at a reasonable price?

Pets at Home and Vets rip you off with the worming tablets and flea treatments etc. For one effipro flea pipette the vets round here charged 8!! I can buy 4 pipettes for under 10 from animed and the same goes for worming etc.

Only thing I find Pets at Home for is if you join the VIP club you do get regular 5 and 10% off vouchers which I use on dog food (they have some good offers on their dog food and dog toys)

medicanimal.com, thats where we get our flea/worming/etc stuff from.

I didn't realise getting a dog meant not trying to get value for money on things that most vets add a huge markup on :S

Why pay extra for the same thing??

I've joined the VIP club too, I like the fact you can take the dog in and try things on. I've recently bought him a car harness from there, I've had to buy the biggest size and have it on the smallest fitting. Saves me in the long run but the girl there had actually tried 3 different harnesses on him before we decided on the large one so they are brilliant for things like that. Will definitely be using animed it's a bargin on everything on there. Thanks for the help it's much appreciated :-D

Seeing a pet as a child substitute is not healthy - for you or the animal.

I have no problem with you wanting to make the most of your money - but I wonder about your priorities.

Haha! Some people are unreal. Obviously he's not a substitute for a child, if I wanted a child I would have a child and will be having one when it's finacially viable to do so. The dog is treated as a dog but I love him as a child. My life's perfectly fine and my puppy is having the time of his life with us, I've never seen a more happy, loving dog in my life. You don't know me so stop assuming and judging me, is your name Simon Powell? Are you gonna give me a life changing contract? No if you've got nothing nice to say don't bother answering my posts thank you very much.
