Re: Do you stop flea & tick/heartworm for winter?
I no longer use flea/tick prevention. I have never seen a tick on any of them, and well, I haven't had fleas in years and years, so I figure I will treat if and when I get it.
Heartgard I do as soon as mosquitos come out and continue until they go away, for the most part.
I think it depends what kind of winters you have. We have a couple of months of freezing weather -- below 32 the whole month -- usually. Then there are those months of crappy half freezing weather which is 20 degrees today, 44 tomorrow, and back down to 18 on the weekend.
Then there are the crappy rain/sleet/snow weather.
You have to love it here. We have four destinct seasons: Winter, Still Winter, Almost Winter, and Barrel. LOL.
