My dog wasn’t even on heart guard until a month ago.. Long story.
Anyway, we took her to the vet and she got a shot instead of the monthly pills. It was like $50 for 6 months. I’ll have to take her twice a year but she’s protected and I don’t have to think about it!

AgileK9s: This is exactly what I do. I pay $5 for a tube of Ivermectin, mix correctly and dose orally monthly. You only need to mix it once then store it in a jar in a cool dry place. A tube will expire before I need to purchase another (approx 2 years). No issues, and we test yearly for heartworm.

pinkshoes: My dog is between dosage levels too and I was told to give him two of the lighter weight ones (he’s a large breed, but only 6 months old). Like PP said, I’d be hesitant to do anything without asking the vet. One of my friend’s dogs had heartworm and it’s very serious and costly to have treated.
