    I have not found them in Canada. I purchase mine off of eBay. One collar costs 30-40 dollars. Win-win. Most sellers on ebay ship quickly.

    heartworms :

    Tks Sharon. The reason I ask is because when I wanted worm medication (not heartworm) they insisted on a check up for the dog and the cat and there was no blood work done. $70 for a 5 minute check up led me to OTC products and diatomaceous earth. Bella also get brewers yeast every day all year long.

    My vet would want a feces check before giving me deworming meds , which I would want too.

    To me, a general check up seems a bit over board for worm medication, but I'm not a vet so maybe.......................

    What's your reasoning for the need of diatomaceous earth? Brewers yeast is given by many to their dogs apparently. Certainly not essential.

    If your vet trusts that you know what a tape worm is in your dogs poop...you shouldn't have to have him to confirm it and just sell you the pill.

    I had to order them it online to avoid that $75 gouge. ..it worked, worms gone, dogs healthy...imagine that

    I discovered quite a few farmers/locals use it for deworming when I worked at the feed store...the only downside it takes about a month of treating their food once they have worms.

    Good information on this topic here, thank you all. The collars sound very interesting. I spend a lot of time at my cottage at Long Point in the summer and tons of ticks there. However, two of my dogs are fairly young and quite playful with each other and are always wrestling and pulling each others necks. Do you feel this could be a challenge with the collars both from the perspective of pulling them off or breaking them and the health issues of mouthing them? They all wear nylon collars when not hunting and I don't generally have problems with them being pulled off.

    Just picked up Advantix II for X-large dog @ Meijers in Michigan. $49.99Us = $67.00cdn for a 4 month supply. Hope I didn't over-pay...lol

    If you're concerned about that, you might consider Nexgard.

    OK thanks used Advantix 2 last year without any issues. Maybe I will just stick with that. My Vet is the wife of a hunting and fishing buddy and she usually gives me good advice and even tries to save me money. (To a point ) I will see what she suggests.
