We have used a combination flea and tick with heartworm for years. Sentinel seems to be temporarily discontinued. What is the best way to cover both issues with mininmal inconvenience at this point?
Our Vet Says:
Unfortunately there are only a few products which cover all
problems and one of them is Revolution. It is a prescription product.
Alternatively you can try Interceptor or HeartGuard for
heartworms and gastro-intestinal worms and another product like K9Advantix or
Frontline Plus for fleas and ticks.

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...?
