This morning I discovered this site that sells inexpensive prescriptions for my dog. Until now, I’ve been buying all my medicine straight from my vet, which meant that I had to schedule a visit before I could get him treated for things like internal parasites and fleas. If only someone had told me before that I could just order his prescriptions online! I made another important find 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 absolutely necessary. In looking over the site, though, I found something called Sentinel for dogs. Sentinel also treats heartworm, but it was notably 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 trouble. Even though the price of Sentinel is twice that of Heartgard, the even higher cost of a medication like Frontline Plus makes it a real deal. Of course, I only need to administer heartworm preventatives to my dog during a portion of the year, so I’m not sure what to do about dosing. Can I leave off during the cold part of the year altogether, or does he still need some flea protection during the winter? It seems like fleas, too, are only a problem really in the summer. I’ll have to do more digging on the topic, but overall I’m ecstatic. I wish someone 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.
