Question about heartworm preventive medicine? Anyone on here not using heartguard or interceptor etc and just going with all natural products? I am trying to decide if I should give my 17 week old puppy heartguard or interceptor or just trying to go the all natural route. What are your thoughts?

I like Revolution. That's what I've always used. It's a spot on treatment and it comes in different size doses for different weights.

It depends on your geographic location. I'm in northern CA and I give Heartgard Plus to all of our dogs--to go without it would be putting my dogs at risk. Have never had one adverse effect in 30+ years in many different breeds of dogs. Highly recommend it if you are in a high risk area. Your vet will let you know.

I do the all natural route. I have my yard sprayed with organic spray for mosquitoes, ticks and fleas, I spray my girls with wondercide, had several bug zappers installed and I test my girls 2-3 times a year for heart worm.
This has always worked for me and my property abuts wetlands, a stream and pond, so lots of bugs.
Here is an article that might interest you.
