I am new to all this dog business. Squirt is the first dog I've had in 20 years. And treatment and care for dogs has changed a lot in the last 20 years. Man, this is like having a baby, I read about all the cool stuff here in the forums and I just want to have everything! I am driving DH crazy.
Anyway, when I picked up Squirt he had his heartworm medication for the month, and when I took him to the vet I asked where to get the medication in the future, do I just get it at a pet store, he said you had to have a prescription and I could get it there at the vet's office.
So if you buy it online, is that like buying human prescription drugs on line? Do you get a written prescription from the vet and send it in? I would buy human drugs from a place like drugstore.com, but I wouldn't buy human drugs from many other online places.
This dog ownership thing has changed a lot, I'll tell you that. I don't remember ever giving a dog heartworm medication, and I don't remember the vet ever recommending it 20 years ago. I am told here to give it year round.
