Preventing heartworms in our furry friends is an absolute must and a top priority for pet owners. If your dog becomes infected with heartworms, they can become very sick and might not survive the infection. Preventing these nasty parasites, thankfully, is not very difficult to accomplish. There are many products available, such as the pork-flavored Iverhart Plus. This is a preventative designed for canines which fights off not only heartworm infections but also helps treat and control infections of roundworms and hookworms. It is safe for dogs provided they are six weeks of age or older. It is similarly safe for female dogs which are pregnant or breeding. Not only is this product a very helpful safety measure, but its delectable flavor means your dog will be encouraged to take their meds.
