There are some relatively new products on the market which when applied to dogs both controls fleas and protects them against heart worms. My Yorkie will not eat the Heartgard...no way!
sort by best latest
Our Yorkie, "Cash Money" seems to have a very fined tuned nose for Heartgard no matter what it is wrapped in. His sister, a Shih Tsu, name "Callie" eats it like candy. Cash can sniff the stuff out through a steel wall! He is very paticular!
You can always get him a job with the cops canine Dept...sniffing out drugs!! After all, with a name like cash money.....he should earn his own keep!
Tried all that...he picks up on the smell matter how I mask it. Thanks much!
I know, some will find it and for those, I use the method the vet taught me. I have never had a problem getting a pill in a dog. I may have to try two ways but that is it. I use Brewers Yeast for my dog for the flea protection and he never has fleas.
The Advantage product was the one we were considering...long term experience with it. We were fearing the potential for kidney damage.
Hmmm have never seen any problems with that before.
If kidney damage can be a concern....it's scares me that most Vets prescribe and recommend this!! Now I need to do some research.
I am a veterinary technician and have never heard of or seen any dogs getting kidney disease from this. I have heard of other side effects though, but they are usually less serious than kidney disease.
