Talk to Vet First
This product requires a prescription from your vet. It does not say this on the website and if ordered with other products will hold up your whole order until your vet sends them the prescription.

Best price around
Paid with Pay Pal. The charge from Pay Pal did not match the original price I signed up for, making it difficult to balance my monthly bank statement. Not sure whose fault this was, but I will no longer be using Pay Pal.
ProsGood price, delivery time average.
ConsQuoted price did not match what I was billed by Pay Pal.

Protect Your Dog
Recommended by our vet, we've been giving our Golden Retriever this medication once a month for 12 years. This is a banner year for mosquitoes as it has been very hot for months. We don't take chances with her health. Never had a negative reaction and she loves the tabs so they're easy to give.
