Heartguard Plus.. online?

With 3 large dogs now, I'm looking for an alternative to purchasing my Heartworm meds for the dogs. My vet gave me a prescription today for Heartguard Plus, 12 pack and didn't seem too thrilled to do so, but did anyway.

I've done a little research so far, and found a place in Canada that offers it with no prescription, and some a place in NE (www.entirelypets.com). The NE place advertises the 51-100# size for $55.99. Shipping is $4.95, and there's a $3.00 coupon to use.

Anyone ever heard of them, or can recommend any other place that's competitive in price.

Any other alternatives are welcome as well.

Thanks,
Greg

one alternative is keeping a dogs immune system strong, feeding grain free diets. protecting against insect bites, etc. there are several holistice remedies for preventing heartworm. i use paratox, there is another product called the parasite dr. there are also several herbal mixtures. also using garlic in the diet helps create an unsavory inviroment for parasites.

Re: Heartguard Plus.. online?

I personally would be very careful purchasing heartworm preventative from a place that doesn't require a Rx. I get mine from Drs. Foster and Smith (online) it is much cheaper buying from them than buying from my Vet. My Vet wasn't too thrilled to give me the Rx to get it else where but if I can get 12 doses for the price of 6 - I'm going to get the 12 from Drs. Foster and Smith.

I know debbie mentioned some other ways of prevention but for me I use the monthly prevention b/c that is what I feel comfortable with.

Hope you are able to come up with something that works for you and your 3 pups.

Re: Heartguard Plus.. online?

everybody has options, and as said above you have to do what you feel is right for you and your dog.

personally, i don't feel comfotable filling my dogs full of oral pestisides. ther are many other alternatives.
