Did not know that slapshot, thanks for the info. If it wasn't for the fact they have taken it off the market it wouldn't be a big deal as I have 2 dogs and thats what we used... but it is no longer available

Yeah I knew they took it off the market to bring their facility "up to standards" which is kinda scary, but hey it works! But yeah both vets I've used were out, and its what we have always given to our 2 dogs too because Chloey throws up for 2 days after every heartguard tablet. My vet now offers a shot that lasts 6 months that she was fine with..... but that doesn't give me any interceptor for my tank that way.
