I'm having the same problem with medicating my dog. I don't feel comfortable with putting chemicals into his body but i don't know if that is the smart decision or just the popular decision. I started a discussion on it a while back hoping to get some advise so you should chek it out and see if it can help you make a decision.

As for the alternative, there are homeopathic preventions but I don't think thhre is much proof as to how effective it is and it is more indepth. You can read more on that here.

Christine, I can't answer your question about Heartguard--my Scout is on a different medication for heartworms, called Interceptor, but it may be similar. Until just a few years ago, heartworms were unknown in Idaho, but now they are here, and we must medicate. Don't know if there is any alternative, at least my vet doesn't think so. I mostly answered because I was so taken by how beautiful Riley is--what interesting face markings! We are wanting another pup to be companion to Scout (who is 7), and we are waiting for a litter from our breeder here in Idaho, but I have also looked at the website of your breeder in Gaston. I'm not sure just where that is, but isn't LaPine near Bend? We like that area a lot--guess we consider Oregon our "second" state.

Would like some feedback on Heartguard for heartworm prevention. We live on the High Desert in Central Oregon...La Pine to be specific. Starting in late spring through the summer we have sooo many mosquitos. My problem is, that It bothers me a great deal to have a dog tested for heartworm and to medicate with products that contain chemicals...even though I know that heartworm can be deadly. Is Heartguard the best solution to the prevention of heartworm?

You should check with the vet to verify what it is exactly. My friend's black lab would get something like that on one leg all the time and it ended up being that he had bad allergies and was licking and nibbling that spot due to the itching which in turn formed a wound. There are lots of things that can be done to help if that is the problem.

Question. . . Logan has this spot on his front leg that is red, sometimes seepy, starting to scab over and he's constantly licking it. He gets the same spot in the same place every 6 months or so. Other than the licking, it doesn't seem to bother him. So my question then, does anyone have any ideas what it is and how to get rid of it?

update on Bunny's torn ACL and weight - her right rear ACL is all healed, no residual damage evident at this time, though I'll keep her on a supplement with MSM, Chondrotin, fish oil/omega 3's etc for joints and tissue health.

She's lost 5 lbs so far! Still a ways to go before she's at her goal weight of 23-25, but with the good report on her knee more walks in the picture.

Please help if you can . . . pass along to other dog lists (I've already sent it to corgi-l and showcardi)

Anthony and Debra Pepe asked to post and request that you repost to any 'doggy' lists with members who may live in the area.

Their beloved 3 year old red and white Pembroke Welsh Corgi bitch (in show condition) escaped from being temporarily boarded in the Elkton, MD area early this week, and despite great efforts by everyone, has not yet been located.
She is microchipped and friendly, although undoubtedly frightened (they've had severe thunderstorms in the area which haven't helped with that, or with tracking efforts).
Please remember this little dog and the Pepes in your prayers, and reach out to any other lists in case there are any dog lovers in that geographic area MD/PA/DE) who may still be unaware. Anthony has to return to work in NJ this next week for a few days but will be back in the MD area soon--his cell phone # is 732-713-1709 and you can leave a message with any info or sightings.
