Prescription Medications

Heartworm

Approximate annual heartworm testing is required before the purchase of canine heartworm prevention

WHY ANNUAL HEARTWORM TESTING IS REQUIRED BY VETERINARIANS IN ORDER FOR PET OWNERS TO PURCHASE MONTHLY CANINE HEARTWORM PREVENTION

  • GIVING HEARTWORM PREVENTION TO A DOG THAT IS INFECTED WITH HEARTWORMS CAN BE FATAL.
  • WITHOUT ANNUAL TESTING AND PROOF OF PURCHASE FROM A VETERINARY ESTABLISHMENT, THE WARRANTY BY THE MANUFACTURER OF THE PREVENTION WILL NOT HONORED.
  • WE HAVE SEEN PETS VOMIT AFTER GETTING THE PREVENTION, TAKE IT AND HIDE IT SOMEWHERE AND ONLY GET A PARTIAL DOSE AFTER SOME HAD FALLEN OUT OF ITS MOUTH.
  • NOT GIVING THE PRODUCT EVERY 30 DAYS MAY EXPOSE OUR PETS TO POSSIBLE HEARTWORM INFECTION. SO OUR PET MAY BE POSITIVE WITHOUT US REALIZING IT.
  • IF YOUR PET IS INFECTED WITH HEARTWORMS, YOUR VETERINARIAN NEEDS TO KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE IN ORDER TO PREVENT IRREVERSIBLE HEART AND LUNG DAMAGE.
  • ANNUAL HEARTWORM TESTING IS A MEDICAL STANDARD THAT IS RECOMMENDED BY THE AVMA, AMERICAN HEARTWORM SOCIETY AND STATE BOARDS OF VETERINARY MEDICINE IN FLORIDA AND ACROSS THE UNITED STATES.
