    DefaultHeartguard and Frontline for a young growing puppy?

    Where should I get these, I need another dosage but I don't want to buy a 3 month pack because he will no doubt grow out of the size range by the time I use it up. Should I just go to my vet until he is in his adult range?

    That is the path I took. Some by the anticipated adult size, and then use a syringe to measure out the intermediate dosages as the pup grows, and break the heartguard into halves or thirds as appropriate.

    I buy my HW meds for pups in single dosage from my vet until the pup is the proper weight for the regular dose. I use Interceptor.

    I do the same with the Heartgard. My vet will break up a package for me.

    Ditto here, add flea meds to that as well.

    You're paying $10 for each dose? YIKES.

    No, I was just shocked at how much your vet charges for a single dose. I don't use Frontline more than 2 times a year either, so I don't have any suggestions there either.

    I thought it was fair. 3 month supply costs $50. They sell me 1 month for $10. Works for me.
