I have had many dogs and consistantly applied flea/tick products and given Heartworm monthly after my lab-mix was infected. All of my fur-kids have lived long and happy lives, my GSD lived to be 15.5 years old, I have a 75lb golden/border collie mix who is 14 and extremely healthy.

Longevity and health depend on regular excersize, good food, and breeding. Dogs simply do not live long enough for most chemically induced diseases to appear.

While holistic vets may work for some, I prefer the efficacy of well established science. Heartworm treatments monthly ensure that my furkids are protected. Their lives, health, and happiness are my responsibility and I'm not willing to gamble them for the sake of political correctness.
