How can I prevent my pet from getting heartworms?

Prevention is Crucial

Dogs diagnosed with heartworms must undergo a series of intravenous treatments created to kill the adult worm. It is essential to test puppies as soon as they are old enough, to establish whether or not they have heartworms. If puppies test negative they should be put on prevention medication immediately to protect them against these harmful parasites. There are countless brands of heartworm medications on the market, some good options include:

• Heartguard Plus
• Interceptor
• Revolution

Talk to your vet about your pet's best option and start administering the medication immediately.
