hi, when my dog buddy was in his first year it was suggested that i give he the heartworm medicine .i did for 6 month treatments . however, since he does not come on contact with other dogs feces and such. i have not given it to him for a year know.i originally thought six month treatment was all i needed to give him in his first year of life ,he is now 2 years old and it was told to me that i should be giveing him heartworm medicine once a month all his life is that right??
please help.thank you
Heartworm is transmitted by mosquitoes so if your pet comes in contact with mosquitoes then your pet can contract heartworm dz. vetcare
