    I do. Matter of fact I realized yesterday that I missed this month's dose. I will give it to her on the first of the month. Need to set a reminder for myself.

    Mine have been on Sentinel since they were little so I keep using it...I like that it prevents development of flea eggs.


    Cheerio mates!

    I don't, but the boys get checked annually for them. They got a clean bill of health for this year. I did inquire if checking for them twice a year is a good idea seeing they don't take any preventatives (except for acv) and she said that we could, but the second test won't show anything seeing that it'll take a few months for heartworm to manifest and the month of May is when it's best to check.

    Heartguard year round, and will forever. Once you see a dog with heartworm suffer...and it takes just ONE mosquito, you would never let that happen to yours. No judgement, just opinion
