I just googled it and it said it was pulled in 2004 for the deaths of canines. I'm definitely staying with the pills. Thank you for the info.

Alli.baby Okay. I'm bringing her to the vet this morning. I'll just keep her on the pills for now. Thanks a lot.

Jax08 yeah...you are in the year round prevention area. I still would not go with the shot. Do some research on it for side effects.

Alli.baby We live in Lafitte, Louisiana so there's plenty of mosquitoes.

Jax08 Where do you live at? That is really important when it comes to HW prevention.

I have never heard good things about the shot.
