As a pet owner, you know the importance of maintaining your pet's overall health. Not only does your pet need a healthy diet and exercise, but he also needs protection against dangerous internal parasites like heartworms, roundworms, and hookworms. Using a monthly heartworm preventative like Heartgard can help prevent heartworms, while also controlling roundworms and hookworms.
If you've never had your dog tested for heartworms, you will need to schedule a blood test with your veterinarian who can conduct a blood test to determine if your pet already has heartworms. It's important to never give Heartgard to any pet that has not been treated for heartworm disease. This is because if there are any present heartworms in your pet, the medicine will kill the adult heartworms, which can cause serious heart failure and even death. That is why Heartgard Plus is given as a preventative, which kills the heartworm larvae before they turn into adult heartworms.
