Heartworm Disease in Dogs
Let's talk about heartworm disease in dogs.
This is a necessary conversation because the rate of infection in dogs is increasing which means that more dogs are suffering this disease's effects.
More dog owners are having to grapple with the decision, "Should I spend the money to treat Buddy, or is it too late?"
Perhaps the data tells the story. For those dogs that are taking heartworm prevention, the average dog is only given the medication 4.9 months out of 12. From this statistic, it appears that many pet owners are forgetting to give the prevention tablet every month.
You are probably wondering, "What about the dogs that never receive preventives at all?" The answer is, of course, they are also at a high risk of being infected with the disease.
