Heartworm Amnesty @ Tropical Vet Services...

May and June, 2018

WHAT IS HEARTWORM?

Heartworm is a potentially fatal disease characterised by large,

parasitic worms that can infest the heart. It is a serious disease

that can cause heart failure, lung disease, organ damage and death.

 

 

HEARTWORM: KNOW THE FACTS

* Heartworm is spread to dogs by mosquito bites.

Heartworm infection remains a risk across Australia; all dogs need to be protected.

It is possible to treat heartworm infection, but the treatments can cause serious complications and are expensive – prevention is better than cure.

 

 

PROTECTING YOUR DOG FROM HEARTWORM

There are a number of ways to protect your dog from heartworm. Your vet will guide you through your options, so you can choose what’s best for your dog.

ONCE-A-MONTH VS YEAR-ROUND PREVENTION

Some heartworm prevention products are once-a-month, but there is also year-round prevention that your vet can recommend.

 

It can be easy to forget to give your dog a monthly tablet or spot on:

40% of dogs that recently

tested heartworm

positive were on

owner-administered

treatments.

 

If you think you might have trouble remembering to give your dog their heartworm medicine every month, ask your vet about year-round prevention. It is important to ensure your dog is protected for the full year.

 

TESTING FOR HEARTWORM IS RECOMMENDED BEFORE STARTING TREATMENT

Testing is performed in the clinic and requires a small blood sample. Results are provided in 10 minutes or less.
