I give HW treatment once every 45 days. Vets will tell you it's a must to treat every 30 days, but if you research the life cycle of HW's, it's not necessary.

I give heart worm every month but only treat for fleas if they have them but i still haven't figured out is why they have to test for heartworm every year if you are on preventative?

Living in Georgia, I treat Butterbean with both Iverhart (for hw) and Advantix (for fleas/ticks) each month.

Well, I switched to it after Butterbean had a bad reaction to Frontline, and she hasn't had a bad reaction to it yet after two months of use. Every dog is different, I guess!
