Heartworm disease is spread by the ever-pesky mosquito. Georgia’s warm humid environment is conducive to an almost year-round mosquito population. Heartworm disease is a potentially fatal condition where spaghetti-sized worms reside in your pet’s heart and blood vessels. A pet that contracts heartworm disease will die early unless it undergoes a series of uncomfortable and expensive Heartworm treatments with a drug called Immiticide. However, heartworm disease is 100% preventable. Heartgard is a flavored chewable treat that is given orally once a month. Iverheart is a generic, more economical monthly product, only slightly less palatable than brand name Heartgard. Revolution is an easy-to-use liquid that is squeezed onto the skin between your pet’s shoulders once a month. Using the oils in your pet’s skin, Revolution spreads over your pet’s entire body, protecting it against not only heartworms, but also internal parasites, and ectoparasites such as fleas and ticks.
