    Yes! Always have! One Vet said all year around the other said only March through October! So we have been giving heartguard plus the first of the month (March through Oct)

    Our vet says we don't need to do it year around because we live so close to the ocean. I give it to them from April to November. I have not given it to boadie yet, at what age do you start to it to puppies? I was planing on starting him on it very soon.
    In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

    The 15th of every month, all five get their dose according to their weight. Heart-guard , from April through October.

    I hope this survey helps, here in PA we have lots of ticks and skeeters. we also have westnile disease from the skeeters. Lyme from the ticks

    We live in Houston, so its a must! When the rescue first found Jackson he was light heartworm positive, so since then he's been on hearguard and we continue to give it to him monthly. I know it happened to him once and I won't let it happen again!

    Samson was on Sentinel during the spring and summer, but it's not being manufactured anymore so we had to switch to Heartguard and a separate flea preventative.

    In Florida it's a 12 month must. I use Trifexis... love it! Outdoors is full of fleas and I never find one on Herschel. My mom uses it for her Chihuahua as well and it's great! Protects against fleas, heartworms and intestinal parasites.

    @Lily122511 Nope! We have no had any issues with it. Tonka doesn't even notice it--it's simply a little greasy spot between his shoulder blades for a few days. He does, however, notice the ointments mommy puts on his face to heal the areas he has itched though...always tries to wipe them off!! ARRRGGH!

    Aw Tonka! Thanks for the info. Guess I'll give it a shot. A little nervous though.
    How is Tonka doing?
    Are you going to do the shots?
