    I have red bugs!!

    Hello members, I seem to have a really bad case of red bugs, my sps are shutting down slowly one by one.. I'm trying to track down anyone that has any Interceptor Pills(heart worm meds for dogs/cats) it's the only know effective treatment. I've done Iodine dips but I have a lot of encrusted stuff that I can't dip. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    go see a veterinarian and explain the situation, they should be able to write you a prescription.

    That's hilarious! I wonder if they'd give me any barbiturates or anesthetic to euthanize my kid if I tell them I have a St. Bernard

    So, how do you treat using the Interceptor Pills? What is the dosage etc? I'm fairly sure I can get some of these, but wouldn't know what to do with them if I had any...
