Crate, mat, bowls, leashes (regular & 30 ft for fetch while he still needs to be on leash), treats, food, nylabone, kong, tennis balls......oh my.
Still need to get tags.
Question....how long after getting our dog should we take him to the vet for his first "regular" check up? After the 2 week shut down (barring any unforeseen sickness/accidents)? Cos I need heartworm & flea/tick medication.
Also, do you guys and gals usually get the flea/tick & hearworm meds from the vet, or the kind at PetCo/Walmart/PetSmart/etc.
Isn't heartworm only available at the vet?

I replied "but any responsible Pit Bull owner should have one, just in case of an emergency."
