As some of you may know my collie of 11 years died in August and it was just heartbreaking for our whole family. My five year old son who is on the autism spectrum took it particularly hard.
We have not been actively looking for another dog until I came across a sheltie on Petfinder on Saturday night
So, I adopted him Sunday, took him to the veterinarian on Monday (got all his shots, micro chipped, we are treating an ear infection, and he was heartworm negative).
Anyhow, I asked my vet about the ivermectin sensitivity and she recommended Revolution. So, I am going to get that. Has anyone's animal been on that? We have three other dogs (two we have had for 11 years, one we have for 3 1/2 years) and they are all on Heartguard / Frontline. Educate me about this medication! I have heard it is strong and can cause seizures....but maybe that is just an overreaction.
Thanks in advance!!!!
(oh and this dog reminds me of when my collie, Laddie, was a puppy...great addition to our family and my son loves him!!!)
