The vet didn't know much about mdr1 so it's up to me to do research... All heartworm meds have sensitivity. I just wonder what other rough collie owners use? It's between Revolution and Interceptor now for me.

I would discuss it with your vet - although (and I am NOT a vet) I believe most oral heartworm medications are safe for MDR1 breeds - as I discussed this with my previous vet (before we moved) and he said she would be fine on heartworm meds (this is when her status was unknown).

Here is the list of known problem drugs from the WSU website: http://www.vetmed.wsu.edu/depts-VCPL/drugs.aspx

Ivermectin, selamectin, milbemycin, and moxidectin are the relevant drugs for heartworm prevention.
Yeah all the meds are on the list! But I talked to the breeder. Mom-dog (dame) is a mutant/mutant but did great with Interceptor, so we will purchase that brand. She says now as an adult they use shots, but I have no idea what shots there are against heartworm (must be sort of like a 3 months medicine shot or so).
