I couldn't find where this was covered even though I swear I've seen it somewhere. It's time for a new heart worm med. I'm thinking about changing. What is your recommendation??

I dilute 1 % Ivermectin with vegetable glycerin. Its a whole lot cheaper than buying stuff from the vet and is the exact same thing you find in Heartgard.

I always used Ivermectin on my dogs, just straight out of the tube, never had problems or worms.

Been giving 1/10th of a cc per 10 lbs of Ivomec since 2004. Have not had a dog with heartworms since.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

I have been using the Ivermectin paste from the tube for years and never had a problem with heartworms or intestinal parasites.
I did read not long ago that some tests were done on dogs after hurricane Katrina hit Nola that found some dogs with heartworm infestation that had been treated with Ivermectin. These were studied and found that the parasites were resistant to Ivermectin.

Same here. Been using it for years with great success. 1/10th of a cc per 10 lbs
Picked it up at Tractor Supply, but Whoa is right, Atwoods as well.
