I have had this Sticky Note on my mom's desk thingy for about 87 days... I am finally getting around to telling you what I learned about this.
IverhartMax is a GENERIC form of Heartworm medicine... that one of our furends talked about early this spring. In that post they told us that IverhartMax was WAAAAY cheaper than Heartguard, for example. Now My mom and I are both up for saving green papers... when it is GOOOD and when it is SMART...
I talked to my VET.. Dr. HUNKY/Husty and this is what he said:
I will NOT recommend it. I will... If you and your mom INSIST give you a script for it... You WILL save some BUTT you will NOT get ANY financial help IF Frankie would ever happen to have heartworm. AND... that does DOES DOES happen... even if you take your pill EVERY SINGLE MONTH.. like the goood boy you are. ONCE IN A WHILE... DAWGS GET SICKIE AND .... THROW UP.... after they take their pill.... If that happens and you get stung by a mosquito that carries heartworm... you could get them.
NOW HERE IS WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING....
IF your VET will show that you have taken HEARTGUARD Every single month for at least one full year, AND you DO develop heartworm... HEARTGUARD will pay a good portion of the treatment cost for getting RID of the heartworms. OK??? Following me so far???
IverheartMax... will NOT pay a single cent.. in this situation.
SOOOOOOO I say... it is better to pay a little More NOW and avoid the Risk.
There now... I can get rid of this... very DUSTY note.
PeeS.... If you have blogging questions that you would like answered (except for the cat crap stuffs from Yesterday)... email me frankiefurter(AT)wildblue(DOT)net
PeePeeS.... After yesterday... I am SERIOUSLY SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING A SWITCH TO WordPress. Soooooo maybe we should all discuss the pro and cons of switching.
