Thanks for the understanding words and I am definitely not going back to the bad-listener. He was horrible! And I realize I'm probably really picky but he didn't even introduce himself when he first came in, and my dog was a new patient! I like to see some nice, caring qualities when I am entrusting my dog's health to someone.
So, no, I will go to someone else in the future and hopefully have better luck. Of course, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I won't see anymore tapeworms and I'm hopeful that will be the case. I did take one aspect of his advice and put the frontline in three different spots on Buddy's back. I had always been told to just apply it at the base of the neck but I tried what this guy said and maybe it will have better coverage.
I'll keep you posted!
