  3. Tick preventive for a (too) small pup and hour?

    General Dog Forum
    Hello! So a few years back my house got infested with ticks, when I didn't even own a dog, because my two neighbors had dogs and didn't even care to take care of their tick problem. I've been terrified of owning a dog since then. But with them suddenly becoming good dog owners, I was excited and...

    Dog Health Questions
    I'm taking my cairn terrier pup to the vets for his booster vacs tomorrow and want to discuss Heartworm treatment, however my vet's approach in the past has been for me to make the decisions about what treatments are used (I know but she's the best of the really poor options around). From...
  8. Topical Flea Treatment Schedule

    Dog Health Questions
    For those of you who use products like Revolution, Advantage Multi, Frontline, etc. do you treat all year round? I live in Toronto, where its currently below freezing and was told that I only need to treat June-November as fleas cannot survive these harsh temps. That doesn't seem right to me...

    Four days ago, my 5 1/2 year old Chihuahua started behaving differently than normal. She wouldn't jump up on the couch like she always does. The next morning I went to feed her and she usually runs right to her bowl and starts eating immediately. She did not go over to her bowl at all. I...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    We're curious if we need to use a monthly flea and tick prevention/treatment here in Phoenix, AZ.

Thanks for sharking your knowledge.

    Greetings to Those in the Know, Can someone tell me how long to keep a Preventic collar on a dog? Do you keep it on all the time or just fit it the day before and remove it the day after you are out in a tick infested area? I do not plan to use any other tick protection. Thanks for any...
