    Default Heartworm Prevention

    I have been using Interceptor for heartworm prevention. Just read that they have temporarily discontinued distribution??? What heart worm prevention meds do you use?

    I used interceptor too until the stopped production. I switched to heartguard plus. My vet carries this. Going to inquire about the safeguard 2 times a year on the next visit. I got a ton of rabbits around and at least one of the dogs picks up a tapeworm during the year. Cheaper to prevent than treat..

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    No matter how little money and how few possessions you own, having a Labrador Retriever makes you rich!
