Prevention of heartworm disease in dogs by eliminating heartworm larvae (Dirofilaria immitis) that infected the dog in the month (30 days) before treatment

    Benefits:

    Heartworm infection is spread by mosquitoes; when the mosquito bites your pet, the larvae are injected and migrate to the heart and blood vessels of the lungs. Over a period of months the larvae develop into adult worms that can reach up to 30cm in length. These worms essentially clog the blood vessels of the heart and lungs, leading to heart failure, respiratory disease, and ultimately death. Treatment for heartworm disease is potentially dangerous and expensive so prevention is essential in at-risk areas.

    Safety:

    All dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infection before starting treatment with Heartgard Plus, which is not effective against adult D. immitis. Infected dogs must be treated to remove adult heartworms and larvae before initiating a program with Heartgard Plus
