On the COA-L site, Kay Lee posted a Vet Blog with Dr. Eric Barchas. Apparently there are several medications (animal and human) medications that are no longer available. One of these is "Sentinel" for heartworm.
My dog, Prancer has been on this medication for nearly nine years now, 12 months of the year. I love this medication because it is taken orally. With his thick coat I often wonder if his flea/tick topical ever make it into his system. With the pill form I know it is getting down there to do the job. He is unfortuately a very fussy eater (no hiding it in anything - not every his favorite - cheese) so I have to just put it at the back of his mouth. It is small enough that it slides down easily.
I have been checking on-line for what I could use as an alternative. The pills I have seen are much larger. In fact one of them would have to be broken up several times which I am sure would not go down as smoothly.
Whenever I make changes to his diet, in any form, he always get diahhrea for a few days. So this makes matters even worse.
Does anyone have any suggestions....... what do you use?
