You didn't start an arguement
, you came to get advice and all just want you to make informed decissions...regarding the rabies, the law says 4 months, however that can be challenged when they are sick and a responsible vet should advocate for you, but it is about the bottom line.
Revolution is an ivermectin spot on treatment. You have to consider at this time the condition of the pup. What is the weather in ohio in NOV. Look online for heartworm prevelence by time of year...heartworm is not as easy to get as one thinks. Ivermectin is pharma grade Avermectin - Avermectin is a lawn pesticide. Ivermectin is a pesticide that courses through your dogs veins and organs. Also consider MDR-1 - mutant drug resistant - this means the dog lacks the ability to remove the drug from the brain where it builds up overtime leading to seizures and even death. Sometimes immediate. NO heartworm or flea/tick should be given within 6 months of a vaccination. I will find the link about heartworm for you so you can decide. Google MDR-1 (mostly herding breeds, but that is because it has been recognized and tested for....many deaths occur that people do not pay for necropsy report) also to consider is the rising cause of deaths due to cancer (hemagiosarcoma) and kidney failure. The prevelence of hs is spleen mass - the spleen is responsible for cleaning the blood...Ivermectin (and other HW drugs) and other biproducts of the drug/pesticide are processed and filtered by the liver and kidneys and then eliminated. When the liver is overloaded with toxins this is expressed in the eyes and skins....However when you go to vet, they will offer abx. and steroids. And you will be on the hampster wheel of illness, vet, drug, illness, vet, drug...IMHO
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
