I recently discovered this site that offers inexpensive medications for my dog. Until now, I’ve been buying all my prescriptions directly from my vet, which meant that I had to make an appointment before I could get him treated for things like fleas and heartworm. I wish I had known before that I could merely order the products online! I made another important breakthrough as well. I’ve always bought my pup both Heartgard Plus for dogs and flea medicine. Everyone I’d ever talked to about dog prescriptions said these were the two that were utterly necessary. In looking over the site, though, I found something called Sentinel for dogs. Sentinel also treats heartworm, but it was significantly more costly, so I looked over the documentation on the site. Sentinel kills fleas as well as heartworm! My dog can take just one product and get rid of both problems. This was an epiphany to me.
This is going to save me both money and ado. Sentinel may cost twice as much as Heartgard, but the even higher cost of a prescription like Frontline Plus makes it a real deal. Of course, I need to give heartworm preventatives to my dog during part of the year, so I’m not sure how this will affect when I give him the medicine. Can I leave off during the cold part of the year completely, or does he still need some flea protection during the winter? It seems like fleas, too, are only around really in the warmer months. I’ll have to do more digging on the topic, but overall I’m elated. I wish a friend had told me before about this two-in-one solution. It’ll also be nice not to have to spread the sticky flea medication on my dog’s neck anymore. He always hates it and fusses.
