Heartworm is 100 Percent Preventable


Heartworm is not something you want your dog to get, one simple explanation for that: Heartworm can be deadly says CEVA Animal Health Veterinary Services Manager Dr. Todd McCracken on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show.

McCracken explains how dogs get the disease. He says it’s “100 percent preventable” IF you use a traditional heartworm preventive, and Vectra 3D which also repels mosquitoes which provides a double defense.

We discuss that while heartworm is preventable the number of cases is on the rise. Why is that happening?

McCracken talks about a generic heartworm preventive – if cost is an issue – this is a great idea; it’s called MilbeGuard.
