I need to purchase my pack their heartworm and flea/tick medications again (I have 5 dogs). I usually keep them on flea/tick 8-9 months per year and heartworm all year round. However, with all these new products (Advantage Multi, Sentinel, etc), I was wondering which you would recommend… My past vet had them on Frontline Plus and Heartgard Plus but my new vet says Interceptor is better…..
