Just back from the vet. got Haileys vaccines and heartworm and intestional worm meds as well. Hard to believe the previous owner had not done a thing to insure her health.She is four months so the vet is just going to do it as she was an adult . She weighs 34 lbs Next Vet visit on 12/7 to do the next round then she will be on the yearly. Vet recommended a monthly combo heartworm/flea dose. lots of options out there, what do you folks use and how often ?
is there a flea problem where you live? I refuse to give my dog something ingested for fleas since it's poison. I don't have a flea problem so I don't use preventative for it. I advise my puppy people not to use something they really don't need.

She dosent have fleas right now, but yes, fleas were a problem for my border collie here
We use oral heartworm and topical flea/tick preventative. We have had good luck with Vectra 3D, Frontline isn't as effective here against ticks anymore.
