I'll be taking a road trip with Darmok to the East Coast later this year and the Vet would like to give Darmok heart worm medicine before we go.  I'm near Seattle and the Vet says that Darmok doesn't really need the heart worm meds in this area but absolutely while traveling to the East Coast. She said there's a couple of different kinds both of which have some side effects.  Do any of you give your AI dogs heart worm meds and if so which one and did your dog experience any side effects?

My AIDogs have been taking Heartgard Plus since they were pups.  They tolerate is very well.

Ayita has been on Sentinel for almost 4 years. No side effects that I am aware of.

All my dogs have been on either heartguard or sentinel, and never had any problems.  Nakoma is now on Sentinel and Interceptor (for the fleas and ticks) and never has any side effects.
