Importance of Heartworm Treatment
Heartworms are found in worldwide including Australia. They are a serious problem for many pets and animals, but dogs are particularly susceptible to them.
Heartworm larvae are carried by mosquitoes. When a dog is bitten by a mosquito the larvae is transferred to that dog. This larvae can then grow and multiply with up to several hundred of heartworms.
Heartworm can cause severe health problems for your dog and impact their quality of life, even after the heartworms die. In severe cases, heartworm disease can even be fatal to your dog.
Monthly preventative heartworm treatment is an important part of caring for your dog and keeping them healthy. Dogs that are infected with heartworm larvae usually don't show any symptoms for the first few months. That's why it is important to treat them every month so the larvae don't have the chance to mature into adult heartworms.
Starting your heartworm treatments on dogs as young as possible is advised to ensure they are protected. Please remember that as your pup grows, they will gain weight, which means they will need a different dosage of heartworm treatment. Larger breeds will also need different treatments from smaller breeds. It’s vital to give your dog a heartworm treatment suitable for their weight at any given time.
