Default How much heartgurad?

It is time for their heartguard, should I give Ike a whole one? It says up to 25 lbs, but he is only 3 lbs. Anyone use it and give it to their Chi's?

I give mine a whole one since she was 2.5 lbs and now she's 3.4 lbs. But I give it to her about every 45 days. Mine is the heartguard plus.

Yes that is what I have, thanks, I will wait 45 days for her to have another.

OH Mercy! I would never in a million years give a 3lb dog a pill for up to 25lb. I used to quarter those for my 5 lb poodles.

I use the plus as well. I used to use triflexis, but prefer heart guard.

Heartgard chews are not designed to be broken in half, quarters, etc. The active ingredient (Ivermectin) is not dispersed evenly through out the chew. You can try Sentinel or Interceptor which comes in a 2 to 10 lb. dosage. Also, giving heartworm meds every 45 days is as sufficient as every 30 days.
