Heartworm Prevention for Your Dog

posted: by: South River Veterinary Service Tags: "Clinic Specials" "News" 

We currently recommend Heartgard for most dogs, but for certain breeds (especially the "heard" breads), we recommend Interceptor. These are oral products that should be given once a month, every month. Feeding mosquitoes inject infective heartworm larvae into the bloodstream, and these products prevent the larvae form reaching the heart.
