|Heartworm Prevention |
|The good news is that most dogs with heartworm disease can be successfully treated, usually with drugs (adulticide, microfilaricide) that kill adult heartworms and their offspring. But prevention is the best cure - it's safer, less expensive, and better for your pet!|
Preventative medications are extremely effective and when given properly, on a regular basis, can prevent your pet from contracting heartworm disease. But remember, year-round heartworm protection is as good as your diligence in remembering to give your pet the prescribed medication, as directed by your veterinarian!
