Fleas and Heartworm Be Gone!

I recently came upon this site that sells inexpensive prescriptions for my dog. Until now, I’ve been buying all my medications straight from my vet, which meant that I had to schedule an appointment in order to get him treated for things like fleas and heartworm. If only someone had told me before that I could merely order his prescriptions online! I made an additional important discovery as well. I’ve always bought my dog both Heartgard Plus for dogs and flea medicine. These seemed to be the two that were absolutely needful. But while browsing around this new site,   I found a product called Sentinel for dogs. Sentinel also treats heartworm, but it was notably more expensive, so I looked over the documentation on the site. Sentinel kills fleas as well as heartworm! My dog can take just one product and get rid of both problems. This was a revelation to me.

This is going to save me both money and trouble. Sentinel may cost twice as much as Heartgard, but the even higher price of a prescription like Frontline Plus makes it a true deal. Of course, I need to give heartworm preventatives to my dog during a portion of the year, so I’m not sure how this will affect when I give him the medicine. Can I leave off during the cold part of the year entirely, or does he still need some flea protection during that time? It seems like fleas, too, are only a problem really in the warmer months. I’ll have to do more research on the subject, but overall I’m ecstatic. I wish a friend had told me before about this two-in-one solution. It’ll also be nice not to have to spread the sticky flea medication on my dog’s neck anymore. He always hates it and fusses.
