yeah it's very disheartening with all the food recalls and all the problems with vaccinations and pesticides. I know when I asked Sabine about this when it was relatively new, and she didn't want to recommend it because it was new and untested. Looks like that may be good advice now, who knows, there are risks with all this stuff. I BELIEVE NOTHING FROM AVMA . They'd sooner promote kibble instead of freeze dried raw.

yeah you have a unique set of circumstances for sure , between the food and the pesticides, she can take it all together and hopefully give you some remedies.

Ha! I asked her what consult I need. I really just want advice on parasites. I THINK I've got their diets figured out. I looked at my old consultation. Funny when I was reading over it I saw how many calories used to be in a primal nugget and it reminded me why I stopped feeding it!!! I was so mad when they added moisture and raised the price 30%! Oh well, my guys did well on it and Fred's skin seems to be clearing up on the grain free diet. I guess time will tell....

Emmie's been on Trifexis for 18 months and has never had a reaction. I think before changing your dog's heartworm/flea medicine that you consult with your vet to discuss in detail. What you read on the Internet may or may not be 100% accurate or applicable to your situation so it's best to do thorough analysis and not make a rash/emotional decision. -Jeanne-
