Congratulations to the winner of this month's Question
of the Month,
who wins $100 for the following question:
I have 12 yr. old Male Black Lab that weighs 133 LB & was just diagnosed with heart worms. Are there any other options for him other than the Immiticide injections? Iï¿½m worried about this option because of the risk with his age. A couple veterinarians have told me to treat with heartgard for 12 months & may get negative test results in that time if I was needing a more affordable & safer option? Only other problem, Jordan has arthritis in his hip & currently takes 2 Rovera 100 mg. tablets dai...?
