My first choice is Trifexis.

However, I get Heartgard for both dogs and Frontline for Gavroche free from work, and Advantix for Logan free through IAADP. So I use those.

For those giving Ivermectin, any info on it you can share? Links for reading, etc? I've been wanting to switch over for a long time now but been scared. I'm not even sure I know how to do it.

We had Ivermectin at the shelter that we used for tapeworms and ear mites but not really heartworms.

I don't have any links handy, but it's given the same way as when it's used for mites, etc. Pull the amount necessary into the syringe via needle, twist the needle off and inject into mouth of dog or squirt onto food to feed.

Good info. I was reading the other thread about dosage. Was talking to my pups breeder last night and that's what she uses too.

We do Heartguard and a Flea/Tick spray from Adams every once in a while. The spray does smell very strong, so we normally put it on before a big outdoor outing so it kind of take the edge off.
