Heartworm Preventative Medicine for Dogs and Cats- 1800PetMeds

We live in Georgia and have a second home on the lake(In Georgia). My now 9yr old Golden Retriever has never had a flea on her. She is treated every month with Frontline Plus and heartguard. We have never seen a tick on her either. I however do not put the Frontline on her November through February. The need is not there. I feel this is adequate treatment for our area. I do give her Heartguard every month year around.

Heartworm, Flea & Tick Prevention - Bristow Veterinary Clinic, L.L.C. Heartgard Plus is a real-beef chewable tablet for dogs that provides protection against heart worms, and treats and controls roundworms and hookworms. Heartgard Plus is given monthly and requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

Can anyone provide more information on their experience with heartworm prevention specifically. I’ve taken our dog off of Trifexis. I’m looking at other flea/tick alternative but my main concern is heartworm prevention at the moment. I was considering Heartguard Plus. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Try the new, safe and effective oral flea and tick medication

I use regular old HeartGard Plus for heartworm treatment and I have been using NexGard for flea and tick control While we can't completely avoid fleas and ticks, we can do a lot to make it harder for them to attack our pets and therefor ourselves. The most common hookworm in Maine for instance, is killed by Heartgard Plus (but not Sentinel or Interceptor), which is one of the reasons we recommend giving your dog Heartgard Plus year round. Heartgard Plus also kills both types of roundworm as well as preventing Heartworm disease by killing immature heartworms. While there are many tick products on the market that kill one or two types of ticks, Nexgard is the only prescription oral medication that kills all 4 types of tick and starts killing them within 2 hours of being given.

NexGard kills both fleas and ticks

We know you have lots of options for flea, tick, heartworm and parasite prevention and we also understand that everyone would like to save money when they can. We also strongly believe that prevention is both better for your pet and cheaper for you than treatment. Because of this, we recommend both Heartgard Plus and Nexgard year round for your dog. By buying these products from us instead of online or at a pet store, you can ultimately provide better care for your dog and save money. Any product you buy from us is 100% guaranteed by the manufacturer, they will not guarantee product that you buy elsewhere. We also have lots of great coupons and rebates available that can save you anywhere from $15 to $50 depending on what you are buying. Now's the time to stop in and stock up, before the fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and other pests really get going.
