I wish I had listened to you about Brevado. I have used cap

I wish I had listened to you about Brevado. I have used cap star a few more times but still would see a flea from time to time. Ollie went to the vet on Friday for sentinel (which he started on Monday or Tuesday). I did give him capstar today because I saw a flea last night. When he was at the vet they said he had very mild E Canis which barely showed but he's on antibiotics. Now my son is sick but dr said she doesn't think he has that and probably just ate too much Italian last night. I hate to give medicine to myself kids or dog. Especially when they can't tell me if it makes them feel bad. I have a few questions.1) I didn't think about ticks so next month when the sentinel wears off can I switch to heart guard and Brevado?2) I have one capstar left since he took one today and is on sentinel do I need to give another one if so when?3) since he has E Canis does that mean he has a tick somewhere? I haven't seen any and I've been checking for fleas. He sleeps with my son should I be checking them both?

My dog has been sick for a few weeks now. It started with blood in her urine and was treated as an iurinary infection with antibiotics. Then after the antibiotics her stool were watery and loose plus she was vomiting often while still stringing to pee. Took her back to vet and found a stone in her bladder. She is scheduled for surgery Fri but I'm worried because tonight in her cage she had an accident while I was gone (diarrhea) and while cleaning it up I found a small skinny slimy black worm. Yuck!!! Could that be from her??JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess.

My wife and I are caring for a 16 yo miniature schnauzer who

Hello - My wife and I are caring for a 16 yo miniature schnauzer who has been healthy - about 3 months ago she exhibited a seizure - leg movements while on her side with barking - I have used Calm from a local store and I purchased an anti-leptic on line that is homeopathic. She continues now about nightly - I am very very reluctant to get phenobarbital or bromide - did that for another old schnauzer in the year 2000 and it was not a good experience. What can we do - our goal is comfort, peace, calm, and we do not want to put her down - we don't believe that way - thanks
