  1. Tick and Heartworm prevention

    Dog Health Questions
    I have a 13lb Morkipoo. He is currently on Advantage multi but because it doesn't cover ticks and this season has been really bad so far I am switching him to Nexgard and Heartgard. The vet says I can give them at the same time or stagger them. What do you guys think? Would it be better to...
  2. Worms. Big-time.

    Dog Health Questions
    As I've mentioned here in a few places, I adopted a puppy (approximately 4 1/2 mos. old at this point) a couple of weeks ago from a shelter, and she's wonderful. As would be expected, she had/has a belly full of worms. Five days ago I gave her a second dose of dewormer (vet-prescribed). I'm...

    Dog Health Questions
    Hey there guys! We ended purchasing this pit puppy from a cragislist seller (I know adopting is better, but we can't find pups 8 weeks old). Anyway, we were told Waffle (that's what we named her) had all her first set of shots and dewormed on paper. We met up with the guy just to find out it was...

    Dog Health Questions
    So, I'd just returned from taking my dog for a walk. He was sitting on the bed, when I noticed a brown squidgy thing, a couple of centimetres in length on his back.

  8. Questions about puppy worming and cough?

    Dog Health Questions
    We're going to the Vet tomorrow morning for a de-wormer Rx, I was wondering what others do about worms. Do you just go the the Vet when your dog shows symptoms? Do you use a monthly or semi-yearly medication regardless of symptoms? Do you use natural or herbal remedies? What do you do for...
