Question from Nicole Oliver Lewis

How often do you give your dog the Programs Plus - just once a month? Please advise.

Our Vet Says:

Program plus is a monthly treatment, it is not necessary to administer earlier than 4 weeks. If you have a very heavy infestation of fleas you can administer Capstar. Here is some more information about Capstar:
Capstar is indicated for the treatment of fleas on dogs and cats.
Dosage and administration
Capstar tablets are administered orally at a minimum recommended dose of 1mg/2.2lbs
Capstar tablets should be given orally, either directly into the mouth or mixed into a small portion of food and given immediately. Administer on any day when fleas are seen on the animal. No more than one treatment should be given per day.
Contra-indications None. Special precautions for use
Do not use on animals less than 4 weeks old or weighing less than 2.2lbs
Further information
Effects on fleas may be seen as soon as 15 minutes after administration. Between 95% and 100% efficacy is observed within the first 6 hours and 100% efficacy is reached within 24 hours.
To help prevent re-infestation, the additional use of a suitable treatment to control immature stages of the flea life cycle in the environment is recommended.
Nitenpyram is neither embryotoxic nor teratogenic. It can be given to animals at all stages of pregnancy or lactation

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? I�m 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...?
