    If you can afford it and your dog can handle them. I think an oral medication is the way to go for flea and tick prevention. The oral medication covers the entire dog opposed to a topical. I was using a topical "Frontline" on my dogs for fleas and ticks. But it didn't work very well. My...

    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...

    My 6 month old keeps getting worms that look like rice in her stool. I worm her properly with medication, but she seems to continually get them again. Does anyone know what causes these worms to return?

    Let the big guy outside last night, brought him in a few minutes later and he was sporting a pretty little gash by his eye. Narrowly missed the eyeball. No idea what happened. We had to run, I had work so opted not to go to the e-vet and just went to the vet today... So we missed the window for...

    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...

    Has anyone used food grade diatomaceous earth on their pet for flea and tick prevention? If so, how often do you apply? Or do you just put some in the pet's food? Suggestions for a specific brand? Thanks in advance.

    So I found a tick on Lily after coming inside from going potty today. We don't have shrubs or grass really so I am a bit concerned. From what I looked up it is probably a kennel tick? Not sure if that's accurate but I am wondering if there are any tricks to keep them out of the home and off of...

    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.

    What do you guys use to keep mosquitoes off of your dogs. Someone told me about Avon Skin So Soft. I just got a bottle. Do you guys get pills for your dogs every month?

    Well since some ones dog on the board drank some soap, i figured i'd get to searching on harmful things that they can ingest, or topical. My goal for this thread is too make lists of potentially harmful things that could be prevented. im also going to try and post what to do if you should ever...

    Authored by: Becky Lundgren, DVM Most snakes will try to avoid you or your pets; snakes typically bite only as a last resort. But while you may wisely decide to simply walk away when you encounter a snake, dogs and cats will often harass the sliding invader -- and may get bitten as a result...

    I use frontline for flea/tick and sentinel for heartworm. I just got it from the vet and never asked any questions. Is this what everyone uses monthly? Are there any other preventative medications you shoujld be giving your dog monthly?

    How to prevent a fight The very best situation to prevent a fight in your home is to have a pit bull as the only pet. Pit bulls are people-dogs anyway and if they receive enough attention from their family, they don't need a canine companion to be happy. However if you prefer having two dogs...
