It's more common in the warmer states.. since mosquitoes like to hang around where it's warm. Annoying butthole mosquitoes. I heard Texas and Florida have heart worm year-round.. super south and near the water.

Is there a recommendation I should make to the vet..? I'll do some research and see what's best.. I don't want to tell her to change it and then have her put him on something else that sucks. :| Thanks everyonee.
kakarot: We are in south Texas also. Nikki's vet does not like Trifexis because he has seen so many dogs get sick from it. We are using Heartgard Plus and Frontline Plus (every three months) for fleas, Nikki has a flea allergy.

I live in South/Central Texas so.. I'm assuming yeah, the risk is high. Mosquitoes here live well into the winter months since it rarely gets cold here. They're around pretty much 9/12 of the months.

Baillif I use frontline or advantix and then hartguard when it is time for that or just give ivermectin straight up. For dewormer ive used monthly doses of sentry hc worm x plus. Never had issues.

Why all this on such a young pup. Were anti biotics really necessary ?

Flea treatment -- Trifexis causes vomiting , has been recalled late last year , and has caused deaths . https://www.change.org/petitions/fda...ablet-trifexis and so many other reports , but I'll let you look into that yourself.

That is a lot of service for the young dog. In my opinion , sure to keep you as a steady customer ---
Yeah. When we got him, he had this.. gash on his face and it got infected.. so he needed the antibiotics (it was turning cyst like).. but they also did the 1st set of vaccinations and monthly dewormer since he was 8 weeks.. (they were saying 8 weeks was when he needed to get first vaccinations and deworming?) and his second set at 12 weeks. His face is a lot better, but he finished the antibiotics on the 22nd and haven't given it to him since. He only puked way late into the night the first time (5 AM) middle of last week and then earlier this morning (9 AM), but I try to not feed him after 10 PM.. so what the others said, he's probably just throwing up bile.

Lilie If you are crate training, you can utilize a 'special' treat at night after you give him your crate command. Then, if you get up with him in the evening to potty, use the crate command and treat again.

Just remember to incorporate your 'treats' as part of his over all food intake. You don't want to get a pudgy puppy!!!
