Which heart worm medication is safe to use on MDR1 gene dogs?

Asked by: Dog Lover
All brands of heartworm prevention (including those that have ivermectin and milbemycin) is safe to use in dogs that have the MDR1 gene as long as they are given the proper dose for their weight.

Can you use this medication even if your dog does not currently have worms but  rather to prevent them?

Asked by: Leni
MilbeGuard will prevent heartworms but "only" treats and controls hookworms, roundworms and whipworms by killing them once a month. Due to the intestinal worms' short life cycle, infection may reoccur after 2 weeks, but the worms are then killed when the next monthly treatment is given. It will not prevent your pet from getting intestinal worms.
