Heartworm Disease in Dogs (2)

Heartworm Treatment and Prevention

The heartworm infection resist is greatest in dogs that are housed outdoors. This is because there is a high probability of being bitten by mosquitoes that have heartworms. As pets try to block mosquitoes as much as possible indoors, their indoor life can help prevent them from getting heartworms.

Taking preventive medicine is the most common preventive measure -there is a preventive medication in chewable, tablet, and topical forms. Also, getting an injection is another way for prevention. The American Heartworm Society recommends monthly prevention and heartworm tests once a year through a guideline.

  • However, the carcasses of heartworms killed by drugs may accumulate and block clood vessels, causing blood clots. Therefore, you should be able to identify the situation in advance through steady blood tests and heart tests and prepare for appropriate countermeasures.
