Every Dog Needs Heartworm Prevention

By at July 15, 2010 | 3:29 pm | 0 Comment

Last week a friend of ours stopped over, and the topic of heartworm came up.

By at June 9, 2010 | 2:38 pm | 1 Comments

We bit the bullet and added to our furry dog family this weekend. I had been wanting to get another dog for our 3 year old poodle mix, Tad, to play with.
