    Took Bruno to the vet today and got his 3rd distemper shot, and a rabies shot. The vet mentioned getting a heartworm medicine once a month for life. Is it normal to do this for life? I thought he was done after the first two times we gave him the medicine. Quick google search and saw...

    Hi, when I went to my vet, he chose Trifexis as heartworm/flea med. It is $36.99/mo.... Not only is it expensive, I had a really hard time getting my dog to take it. It smells really strong and it is big. I cut it up into 4 pieces and barely got him to eat it, even when given with beef sticks...

    Can someone recommend a good heart worm preventative? Is there a good place you can recommend buying it on line? It`s my understanding that heart worms are transferred via mosquito bites and there are lots of skeeters down here in Florida... Any help is appreciated.

    And soon they'll be out of the same weight class! Roxie weighed 44.6lbs and Kane a whopping 48.1lbs. I can't believe they're approaching the 50lb mark. When I first brought them home, they could both fit in a chihuahua carrier! lol Also, have some pics of Kane. He's been particularly goofy...

    It is time time of the month again for my kennel to get treated. I just did all the dogs and thought since we have so many new members I would share what our kennel does to control these parasites at an affordable cost. Heartworms are easily controlled my ivermectine that you can get at any...

    Heartguard is the biggest rip off in the pet industry if you didn't know there are cheaper alternatives that work the same, now ya do! lol Many already know about giving Ivermectine for heartworm prevention but they might be overdosing the dog by giving 1% ivermectin. This is a cheap place that...
