Heartgard for Dogs
Protection to live
"I have a 10 year old Jack Russell Terrier who hates taking pills. I have suffered through sticking them down his throat, sneaking them to him in food (only to have him spit them out), and crushing them. At last, I can protect Mickey from heartworm year round with chewable preventative medication that he loves. He looks forward to is monthly Heartgard Plus chewable. And I am relieved that I don't have to struggle with him every month."
