Puppy heartworm protection
We recommend heartworm injections as the best puppy heartworm protection. The first heartworm injection is given at 12 weeks of age and is the only heartworm preventative that can kill all heartworm larvae. A second injection is given at 5 to 6 months.
This form of treatment ensures your puppy will not have heartworm, whereas other strategies can't ensure this.
Although this is the method that we recommend, it is not the only method. Tablets and all-wormers do exist and we can discuss these treatments with you, should you need advice. Please note: if you miss a dose of the tablets, blood tests will be required to test for heartworm larvae.
If your pet is not currently receiving heartworm treatment, please contact us.
