Is Heartworm Medicine for Dogs Necessary?

There are some parts of the world that have a higher rate of Heartworm, such as south east United States.

These areas will have mosquitos, and will be hot for a long enough period of time for the Heartworm larvae to mature in the mosquito, for it to be then passed onto a dog.

If you live in an area where it’s very common, it’s recommended to put your dog on a preventative Heartworm Medication. If you live in a non-endemic area, it’s not necessary.

I hope this helps, here is a link to my eBook for more information:
