    Default Heartworm & Flea-tick medication

    I have never given this medicine to previous dogs bu Stoagie is already sensitive as it is so I don't want to take any risks. I want to give him this medication if its needed. So I had a few questions for you guys, as always...

    Do all dogs need both of these medications, more specifically our bullies?
    If so which one do you think is best considering how finicky they are with everything I don't want him having a bad reaction to a certain brand.
    When is a good age to give him these medications? Or is any age a good one?

    Just some info.
    Stoagie will be 6 months on the 4th of December, and we live in Nor Cal..just in case that matters as far as where bugs usually are in the states.
    AND we live in an apartment, hes barely outside.
    The two loves of my life fart and snore like crazy....what does that say about me??? ;D

    Yes, I give my pack Heart worm and flea prevention doses, March through November. I don't want to deal with the chance of getting either of these.

    Herman has always been on Revolution for both heartworms and fleas. You put it on their skin instead of a pill. I get most of it on his fur, but it still seems to work

    You can also treat him with dichotomous earth if you want something natural. I'm not sure if it helps against heart worms, but it will help with fleas and other intestinal parasites.

    Mine are on Sentinel year round and it's both a heartworm and flea intestinal parasite protector. I can't use topical on Remy because he breaks out in hives

    We give ours Sentinel year round also. I do not give the topical as it gave a couple bullies we know a bad reaction.
