Lethality spec - Kaliyo or Dr. Lokin as companion?

I just got Dr. Lokin but haven't geared him so I am not ready to use him just yet. However, I wanted to know if I should use him instead of Kaliyo once I do gear him up.

I read that Dr. Lokin can transformer into a rakghoul (I'm level 39). I'm not sure if that means he'll do more damage using that option. I'm using the Lethality spec and I like how Kaliyo does a lot of damage and keeps the enemy off me while I am doing my damage up close and personal. I would imagine as I keep progressing into the character, the fights may be more challenging and I'll have no choice but to use the Doc. Or do I?

Is it more difficult to level up using Kaliyo than Lokin? I'm not interested in being a healer myself, but I could change to concealment. Anyway, just looking for some advice.

its 'easier' to use lokin, but noticeably slower, personally i like to use a tank pet, like kaliyo, that does their share of damage and allows me to just go to town unhindered. i dont bother to heal them after fights, just keep going until theyre low on health then unsummon-resummos/mount-unmount.
