Heart worm prevention

My 6 month old Dobie pup Hans drives me crazy when I open a Guinness beer. I did some research and found that a small amount every month will prevent heartworm. Any input on this.
Thanks

Ummm, no. Just...no.

Please use heartworm preventative. If you've never gone through heartworm treatment with a dog...you do not want to. It's awful. A simple heartworm preventative is inexpensive, low chance of side effects, and very, very worth it for your dog's health. Heartworm can be found all across the country.

My dog also likes beer. He's occasionally gotten a few drops. I don't consider it anything but a tasty treat. BUT only a few drops.

A grooming experience

I brought Hans for nail trim. He was very nervous, and they put laughing gas to his nose and I took it away. Any thoughts on that.

Thanks Al

Nitrous oxide? Or isoflurane? I'm thinking that nitrous oxide isn't commonly used for animals? Iso, on the other hand, is very common.

Train him to accept nail trimming. If you are on Facebook, this group has a bunch of information. https://www.facebook.com/groups/nail...nance.for.dogs This one covers all aspects of cooperative care, not just nails. https://www.facebook.com/groups/258308611603015

Thank you Al
I really recommend you start a new thread when you want to discuss new topics, rather than continuing the same thread each time. People won't see your new topic in the old thread. It's confusing.

That said, I use Embrace.

Hi Al...

First off: You should obtain canine health insurance as soon as possible. This is to lessen the possibility of having to deal with "pre-existing condition" issues.

That being said... I would personally speak or chat with an actual rep of a few companies before deciding both which company and which plan would best fit your needs.

Personally, like Meadow Cat, I use Embrace. Several folks I know like Trupanion.

Keep in mind, Insurance premiums for a pet plan are not static. As the dog ages, your annual insurance premiums will almost always increase. Also, some companies take your location into account.

Still, for me, the bottom line is that Health Insurance is a must for a Doberman and their owner.

Best to you and Hans!
