You might not have that option before long if production doesn't resume soon. We've been out where I work for months, and every online place I've seen is also out.

I'm so pissed about Interceptor. Our vet is practically out too.

I guess I am going to go to Heartguard, even though he won't chew those ones. So I am going to have to break it up and wrap it in cheese or something.

I don't want to use Trifexis because it's also got flea stuff in it, and honestly we have no issues with fleas, and I don't want to add any other unnecessary chemicals into him he doesn't need.

I went to Revolution. It was between that or Trifexis (which is comfortis/interceptor combined) and since Revolution was cheaper...

I guess even though I don't have a BC, I feel it better to err on the side of caution since I grew up with BC's.

So far it seems to not bother anyone. Scout's sensitive to chemicals/vaccinations so I try to do as a little as possible of both on her.

Selamectin (Revolution) is on the drug list for sensitive dogs, too.

Yea I'm not sure how ivermectin got the "big bad" reputation in general (although obviously for the OPs dog who already had a reaction to it, it's a different story) since pretty much all of them are on there. It's all a matter of dose.
