Heartgard comes in a box of six- price depends on whether you're getting it for small, medium or large breeds.

Small- can be about RM56++

Medium- About RM64++

Large- Prob about RM70 smthg ++

Can be bought from any petshop- the prices will vary frm petshop to petshop.

A friends of mine just bought some last week for small breed (for her JRT).

Costed about RM56 I think.

Oh and all you got to do is just give it to your fur kid. Apparently it tastes like beef, so they'll happily eat the tablet Tongue

Yup, once a month.

But, my other dog, before she passed away, was on the heartworm injection which is a yearly thing.

If u think that is easier for you, perhaps you can ask your vet.

Sometimes once a month can be quite troublesome for some ppl.

Re: [ai_ney] heartgard [In reply to] Can't Post

Because the active ingredient in heartgard and the regular dewormers cover of different type of worms.
So if you give only heartgard, not all common types of worms will be eliminated. Heartgard does contain pyrantel which kills some worms but the regular dewormers contain pyrantel *and* a couple other ingredients(which means the can eliminate more species of worms). Just google the active ingredients..and you should be able to find out which active ingredient covers which worms. Smile

It also depends on the brand of deworming tabs you're giving...but most decent ones in the market have a few active ingredients.

Re: [ai_ney] heartgard [In reply to] Can't Post

i think Drontal is the popular one.. Deworming shud be 3 months once if alwys go to garden and outdoors a lot.. If indoor dog 6 months once is fine.. But need to give 2 times for every deworming.. for example u feed today the 'booster' for deworming is 2 wks from now. So everytime u do deworming remember the 'booster'

I use drontal plus...seems to work for my pack Smile

it depends on the dogs, the ones that go out more often, gets dewormed more often. Usually every 2-3 mths.

Not so often...would be around every 5-6 mths.

Hmmm ok.

Thanks for the info, I'll prob check with my other vet (one clinci got 2 guys- one is my regular, in this case regular vet wasn't around so the other guy told me this)

I remember my blackie Sprite was having issues bef this- no appetite etc.

Then I dewormed her and she was back to eating again.
