Question on heartworm medicines
Tue Aug 22, 2017 3:04pm

Having been gone off and on for the summer, I'm easing back into being home now. I missed a lot on here while I was away. so many changes as many of our precious doodles get older.

Puppy Maxwell is now 6 months old, 21 pounds, and is getting better trained all the time. Great in the house, rings his bell to go out, loves chewing on squeaky toys, comes when called. We have had him 3 months now, but it seems much longer.

He started his heartworm meds with two different free puppy packages, and at 21 pounds he is now ready for a real prescription.

Bear was so unhappy with the topical gel, that he got chewables.

Maxwell seems to tolerate the gel just fine, but i don't know much about the pro's and con's of the different prescriptions. The vet is recommending revolution, but I seem to remember some negative comments about it?

Looking on line, there are different formularies. some with more side effects than others.

What are you all most comfortable with?

Max and I thank you!
