Don't Skip Your Pet's Heartworm Prevention

Have your pet tested for heartworms annually

The American Heartworm Society reports pets being diagnosed with heartworms throughout the year in all 50 states. And with the hot and humid summer months in full effect, protecting your pet is extremely important. If your pet isn't already on heartworm preventatives, you should consult your veterinarian about scheduling a heartworm/blood exam. Having your pet tested can determine if your pet currently has heartworm disease and if preventatives are safe to administer.

Give your pet heartworm medication each month

Prevention against heartworms is certainly the most cost-effective way to avoid costly veterinarian bills. But most importantly, heartworm prevention helps protect your pet against contracting this potentially fatal disease. When giving your pet heartworm medication, always give it the same time each month. This will help the effectiveness of the medication and reduce the risk of infection. In addition, some heartworm preventatives also protect against other intestinal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. (See individual product package for full details.)

Max's Tip

Heartworm-infected mosquitoes are the transmitters of heartworm disease. Consider using a flea medication like K9 Advantix II to protect your dog against fleas and mosquitoes.
