East Coast Fleas, Ticks and Heartworm in October
Nala and I are planing a trip to Connecticut and Maine in October and Tennessee in late November and I wanted to ask what type of medicine she would need for fleas, ticks and heartworm prevention.
We live in the mountains and because it's so cold we don't have flea problems and there are no cases of heartworm in our area (I do have regular bloodwork done to make sure!) We are also careful to not have her on unnecessary meds because of her liver issues.
I am going to call my aunt's vet but thought I would put it out to you havanese owners who live in that area!
Our holistic vet thought it was okay for her to travel and to take some preventive heartworm meds for a few months. I don't want to have to leave her at home!
I guess I am concerned about ticks and Lyme disease in that area...
