Comment on Heartworm Prevention by Gina http://gracenfriends.com/2013/03/heartworm-prevention-2/#comment-25714 Gina Sat, 20 Apr 2013 16:02:12 +0000 http://gracenfriends.com/?p=680#comment-25714 Unfortunately, there are no outward sings of heartorms, and they can only be detected by a blood test. It's a very simple and inexpensive procedure, with same day results. A fecal sample is used to test for other types of worms. Products like Heartgard and Iverhart Plus, given every 30 days, protect against all types of worms except tapeworms. Dogs get tapeworms from eating fleas, both dead and alive, and this is one of the few types of worms you can actually see in your dog's feces. They are small and white and look like rice. Tapeworms are not difficult to kill, but they do require a trip to the vet and usually an injection followed by several days of oral medication. There is no preventive for tapeworms, other than keeping your dog and the area he lives free of fleas. I spray my yard with Spectracide every week or two, and use a monthly topical for fleas and ticks. There are many out there, but I use Flea4X from 800petmeds. I hope this helps.

I just wanted to know how you can tell if your dog has worms, and what are the diagnostic procedures carried out when you take your dog to the vet. Also, is there a broad spectrum dewormer that takes care of all worms, or do you have to get different kinds of medication for different worm types? Alana Gina,

Comment on Adoption Event at Petsmart by Gina http://gracenfriends.com/2012/09/adoption-event-at-petsmart/#comment-20042 Gina Fri, 08 Mar 2013 15:48:31 +0000 http://forprofitblogs.com/grace/?p=155#comment-20042 Yes I get a lot of spam comments. Actualy yours went to spam and I'm trusting it's a real request for help and not just a spam comment. There is something called Akismet that will keep the spam from going directly to your site. Sometimes it gets legit posts, and it doesn't catch everything, but it's a big help. Costs $5 a month I think. Yes I get a lot of spam comments.

If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.
