PSA : Don't miss/skip your dogs monthly heartworm dose
I missed december and my dog just tested positive for heartworm
We had a mild december and the mosquitos must have still been out
She wasn't due for a semiannual heartworm test till October, but i was there for other stuff and had her tested early
Thank god i didn't wait till October. ...
The vet said since i have been giving het monthly doses it helps contain the heart worm and there's a chance i may be able to treat her with some drug that kill the heartworm in just one month, but no guarantee
Twenty years ago my parents treated their dog for heartworm and it cost almost $1000
