Re: Heartworm Medicine

Heartworm prevention is usually in the form of a monthly chewable tablet not vaccination. Heartguard Plus is one brand that comes to mind. If you have multiple dogs many on here will give Ivermectin 1% which is the same main ingredient as Heartguard but is a liquid form that is sold for use on swine...

Re: KINETIC Dog Food?

Kent and Hubbard feeds, makers of Kinetic are not affiliated in any way.

Kinetic is not some revamped version of Native.

Looking for opinions, the good, the bad and the ugly if there is any.

What brands and or models are trustworthy and durable? The consensus from I can find so far seems to point to Dogtra or TT/Garmin.

Two problems will result. 1- soft mushy stools 2- pup becomes plump and they grow too fast. Better to keep him a little on the thin side to prevent the possibili...
