Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Ugh! Thanks for sharing! We have 1 of those lot #s. Do I contact Iverhart or my vet where they were purchased?

Thanks Val. I called them and had to leave a message. I know for some recalls you have to go through point of purchase.

Edit: Just called my vet and they were not aware of this expanded recall, but since Evie's had 5 doses from this lot, now she has to go be retested. What a pain in the butt.

I'm sure they'll let you know whether or not to return it to the vet.

Well that's nice. My vet called Virbac and they are going to pay for her heartworm test. All I can say is she better not have it!!!

I have one of the lot numbers too but Saber's only gotten one dose so far. I guess I'll be calling them when they open.
