One thing - the Advantage Multi covers heartworms. Otherwise we would be in big trouble with our collie. o_O

OMG how did I miss that (apparently I missed Revolution too)! I'll fix that on the original and try to replace it!

ETA: FIXED!

Thanks, I am taking my copy to the vet tomorrow since Jaro's recent fecal came back positive for whipworms and I want to change to something that covers that. He took Panacur for 3 days, and in 30 days is suppose to do it again, but I am afraid those little eggs will be in my backyard for years to come and I don't want to keep treating him for reinfestations.

Revolution just started handing out pills with their topline products for hook worms and roundworms.... Pricey but I love that it also protects against ticks and fleas in addition to heartworms

Been there, and in some climates (probably my hot, humid one) the eggs can persist in the soil up to 5 years!
BTW, when it happened to Brooks, I was a new pet owner and didn't really understand what I was told when someone said, if you had your dog on Heartguard, and he got whipworms, you can contact the Heartguard company and they may reimburse you for your medical expenses. I thought, no way, so didn't even try. But years later I heard this again, so maybe it is true.

Heartgard Plus covers heart worms, round worms, and hook worms. Interceptor also protects agains whip worms, but Heartgard does not.

But whips ARE covered in the guarantee (to be competitive with Interceptor). As long as you can prove that you purchased the med from a vet and you have given them in a timely manner (ex. if you purchased 12 pills 14 months ago you are SOL; but if you purchased 12 pills 11 months ago, you are good to go).

For some reason my computer would not let my pull it up i have only ever used 3 heartworm preventsion--the old daily tables years and years ago, the monthly. However i did make the very fatal mistake of using proheart6 on my precious hunter (avatar) and it killed him along with only god knows how many others, before fda had them pull it. It is back now, supposed reformulated, but i would never trust it again.

I had used the frontline and frontline plus for years, but starting about 3 years ago, it only worked about 2 weeks. I tried theadvantix, same problem. Luckily since we have not had ticks in years and years, i can give honey comfortis..and i only give them toher if i find she has a fea or suspect fleas. Her lat one was in june.

Do you think it does cover whips, since it's not on the label?
