  •   lil_beermaiden What a cutie!!! What kind of flea medicine do you use for him? I was reading that some can be toxic for Aussies. 2mon
  •   chembrulee_ @lil_beermaiden Deleted my last comment to give a little more info haha. The sensitivity is to ivermectin, which is a heartworm prevention/treatment drug. The sensitivity is caused by an MDR1 gene mutation that you can get him tested for (not sure how much that costs), but it's fairly rare. I would check with the rescue because they probably administered heartworm meds, and if they used one with ivermectin he is fine to keep using that or any other ivermectin based prevention. You can check with your vet also, they will have options if you aren't sure. Finli doesn't have the MDR1 mutation so we use Tri Heart Plus. The flea control we use is Bravecto, it's a chewable pill that lasts up to 3 months. We've tried several topical flea meds and they just don't work, they itched all the time still and it washes off if they go swimming or we give them a bath, honestly just not worth the money. Both should be available through your vet 2mon
  •   chembrulee_ ^^Neither of them have a single itch on Bravecto, I wanted to add. It works amazingly well. 2mon
  •   lil_beermaiden @halfpint____ Thanks for the great info!!! I'll double check w/ the shelter! :D 2mon
