I adopted a dog and he is high heartworm positive. I can't afford the injections and the vet started him on an antibiotic and heart guard. I'm hoping this will work. How successful is this long term treatment.
I have given my Dogs heartguard for yrs without problems . 15 yrs to be exsact!!!!!!

As for online vet companies getting their hands on Heartguard and such from non-approved sources, that was the last I had heard too. In the last notes we got at for our service dogs, we were warned that no online retailer had the rights to sell their meds online... the reason given? They were afraid people would give the meds to their dogs after the vets would just approve an order without seeing the pet and then start seeing animals die because they already had an infection (see CrazyCatLady's explanation of why this is dangerous). Is the heartguard harmful to dogs? Does it not prevent heartworm? I am not sure I get the gist of this.

Heart guard for dogs comes in the form of a beef-flavored chewable tablet. Dogs must chew it instead of simply swallowing the dose in order to really ingest the treatment. Upon digestion, it kills heartworm larvae as well as hookworms and roundworms. The product uses ivermectin and pyrantel parmoate. Ivermectin destroys the parasite’s nervous system, paralyzing and killing it. Meanwhile, pyrantel parmoate does the same for intestinal worms.Simple fact: This is actually certainly not accurate. Instances of heartworm condition has actually been actually disclosed in every FIFTY UNITED STATE jurisdictions. Acquire pet dogs assessed as well as utilize preventative actions to guard all of them.Heartguard Plus is a vet-recommended product that kills heartworm larvae which comes in the form of an oral medication which not only acts as a heartworm treatment but as a treatment for hookworm in dogs as well.Heartguard for dogs is a product that can help prevent heartworm disease. The brand Heartgard is the number one choice of veterinarians for heartworm disease prevention. I buy small, medium and large dog Heartguard - we have every kind and size! I have been buying from Joe's Pet Meds for years for the best prices - our household is Heartworm Free! I tried "generic" before and ended up with hard pills my dog would spit out. If this is generic Heartguard, neither my dog nor I can tell! Soft chewables that actually seem bigger and softer than actual Heartguard. The shipping takes a little longer but well worth it for the great prices. If you use it correctly, heartguard can protect your dog against heartworms; and control roundworms and hookworms. Heartgard Plus is approved for use in puppies as young as 6 weeks of age. It is also safe for pregnant or nursing females, stud dogs, collies, and dogs with collie genetics.Heartguard For Dogs comes in three different varieties and is given just once a month.
