Sorry to hear Boru tested positive! I'm sure he'll be fine, but it sucks to go through it. I was recently considering changing from Interceptor Plus to a more economical preventative, and found this web site which lists active ingredients for most treatments out there, so I thought I'd pass it on...

Heartworm scares me. I am happy to read that you are confident in his recovery and I sincerely hope you find something that works.
Just a thought, since I don't deal with HW here, I know there are mosquito sprays that are available for horses that are fantastic but I don't know that they would work for dogs. It might be worth checking.

I hope Boru recovers quickly! I know advantix plus keeps always mosquitos. I heard they are becoming resistant to all the insecticides sprayed also. I can see now why it is always good to have the heart worm test even if preventative is given all year round.

Hey Slam how is Boru fairing? Is he over his illness yet? If so have you hit the street with him yet?


I just finished up a 7 week drug dog course and not even a week later one of the handlers resigned to take a job with a higher paying agency. This was going to be my last class of the year beside a dual trained team I am finishing up soon. Patrol is done just doing narc now.


The agency that had the handler leave called me pleading to train a new handler on the dog ASAP! There goes my time off for the rest of the year.


She should breeze the new handler right through the course however unless the handler is slow to learn. Meet him Friday.

Hey Deacon,
Boru is 100% and back to work. He is doing well. I am starting to condition him after his 4 month lay off. He is a little out of shape, but wants to go at 100 mph regardless.

Good luck with the new handler, I hope he is squared away and a sharp guy.
