    The only heartworm preventative for my tiny babies.

    By on

    I don't like giving any heart worm preventative and putting that insecticide in my babies' bodies, but it's a necessary evil in NC; my vet carries only preventative that is for up to 25 lb. dogs, and my babies are in the 2 lb. to 5 lb. range, so I absolutely will not give them something that has enough poison for a 25 lb. dog. I've used Interceptor (Not the "plus" version that has additional poison for fleas) for years with no negative results that I'm aware of. My babies do not have fleas, and are inside 95% of the time, so I do not use any flea preventative of any kind. I use common sense when administering it - especially for my 2 lb. baby - so as not to "overdose."
