Beth didn't have Frontline on her last December and I found a couple of ticks on her after walking in the woods in NY State! I'm only going to stop for January and February in Iowa. Heartworm meds all the time.

Ohio here: my vet recommends year round Interceptor and Frontline, summer and fall. I live close to the river and mosquitoes appear with warm spells.

Depends where you live. Heartworm is a year-round risk in a mild climate so we stick with treatment. We only use anti-flea products when we need to.

Heartguard year around in Florida, Frontline when I remember or think they need it.

Last year (in Chicagoland) I didn't give Heartguard to my hounds in the winter to save some money, and had to spend plenty of money dealing with hookworms as a result (my little girlie is a roadkill queen :sick) -- so Heartguard all year long in my house.

 

I do give my hounds Frontline once in the middle of winter (late December/early January), since I have bunny-catchers, and my first grey explained to me that bunnies have fleas all year long (um ... she taught me that lesson 3 days before Christmas).

Used to be April/May - November when I lived in the northeast.

 

Yup. I used to use them year round, but now things are really tight and since we have long, very cold winters here my vet says I don't need to use them year round.

Year round HW preventative here in the N. Ga Mts., but I have stopped misting with the Adams, as I haven't seen any ticks, and had NO fleas at all this summer.

Interceptor/Heartgard year round.

 

Frontline year round but I usually go every 60 days in the winter months. Last year I wished I had stuck to every 30 days. Human houseguests brought fleas. Ai yi yi.

I'm in Ohio also... I use Heartgard year round. Heart worm is the easiest thing to prevent and to me it is a bigger deal than worrying about fleas. When it gets cold I stop giving Advantage until it gets warm again. Good luck!

Year-round Heartgard. I don't use Frontline on them at all because where we are there aren't a lot of fleas and ticks. When we move into our house on the open prairie I will use Frontline year-round as the ticks are bad there. It only takes a few warm days for those pesky critters to start waking up.
