My vet also mentioned something similar for my girls.I don't like the idea of giving my tiny girls all those chemicals. I use Interceptor for heart worm prevention and Frontline Plus for fleas. I use both only 6 months out of the year and I divide each flea dose in half(for each girl). Where I live, and because my girls are indoors most of the time, this works well.
My vet has always given me Revolution for Cloud..It says it 'protects your pet from heartworms, fleas, and ear mites, (ticks & sarcoptic mange [dogs] roundworms & hookworms [cats])'
..Is this a good brand to be using? Or should I be looking into something different/better? His 1 year check-up with the Vet is in August, and his last Revolution dose is on the 26th of this month so I'll be able to get a new medication...Inceptor? Advantage? Heartguard? Frontline?...etc?
We use the Interceptor. Both pups had no adverse reactions.
I was a nervous wreck to give anything as Coco had a reaction as a wee pup to another medicine. She vomited so much that I brought her to the Pet ER for intervenous fluids.
But with the Interceptor, she was fine. Thank goodness.
It is stressful finding medicines to trust, eh?
