Wow! There are so many options! So which preventative will be right for you and your pet? This will depend on you and your pet’s lifestyle, wants and needs.
If your dog is difficult to medicate, or you wish to cut your prevention down to twice a year rather than monthly, then ProHeart 6 is the best choice for you. It is slightly more expensive than some other options, but it is more convenient and is good for pets that are hard to medicate.
Trifexis is a good choice for pets that are not typically exposed to tick-prone areas. It combines heartworm prevention and flea prevention in one chewable tablet. It has a larger up-front cost, but the overall cost of combining flea and heartworm prevention can save you money in the long run.
Heartgard is our most affordable heartworm preventative. It only covers heartworm disease and must be given monthly. It is the tastiest of our oral preventatives and therefore easiest to give to difficult-to-medicate pets.
Revolution is good for cats and very small dogs. If you are concerned about giving an oral preventative to your pet and prefer to give it topically, then Revolution would be a good choice for you and your dog or cat.
