Prevention of Heartworm Easy, Treatment Not So Easy
Listen to Dr. Ernie Ward on Steve Dale's Pet World talk about heartworm disease:
I really don't get it, heartworm (transmitted by mosquitoes) can be prevented in dogs and cats.
In cats, there is sadly no treatment....In dogs, treatment is available (but now potentially hard to come by).
Dr. Ward also points that the weather has favored more mosquitoes, which means potentially even more heartworm disease.
