Maggie, I am worried about giving the ivermection, sorry it did not agree with your babies...I like the Interceptor best since the largest of mine is 5 pounds. (Eva's breeder uses ivermectin but she uses liquid and doses according to weight.) I took Rose in for her checkup recently, and my vet said production of Interceptor is scheduled to start up again in Feb. 2013 but that Novartis will be reintroducing the human meds first, so no telling when it will be back on the market. Like you, I am good until about April 2013, so hopefully it will be available by then..we'll see.

Both of mine have now had 2 doses of IH plus (0-25) with no issues so far. thank goodness. I really hate the flea meds more. Sammie had bad reaction to FP topical at HH. Thankfully I have'nt need it at home so far.
