DOES MY DOG NEED HEARTWORM PREVENTION?

April is Heartworm Prevention Month! But how do you know if your dog needs it?

We have found a handy flowchart to help with your decision!

The short answer is YES!!

EVERY SINGLE DOG NEEDS HW PREVENTION!


But what if my dog is an indoor-only dog?

This is a reasonable question! However, if we really think about it, it makes complete sense.

I am an indoor-only human yet every year I get multiple mosquito bites! Plus, we are in an extremely high risk area!

So YES, your dog needs prevention!


Can I buy it over-the-counter?

Unfortunately, no. Heartworm prevention is prescription-only.


Take-home point: Every single dog needs heartworm prevention!


Which one do we recommend?

We recommend Simparica Trio!

It is one monthly chewy chunk that protects against fleas, ticks, intestinal worms, AND heartworms!!
