There are so many heartworm products. Which is best for my dog? - aprox. 60 lbs - 7 yrs. old - mix german shep. and lab. Is not ill now / but last ck. up said he had heartworms and the vet wanted about $350-400 ! That was nearly 8 months ago and he is still fine and active as ever.
Your dog should not be on heartworm preventative if your pet was diagnosed with heartworm disease. The preventative does not cure the disease and can make the situation worse. First, your pet should be treated for heartworm disease. The disease will kill your pet. The price you mentioned to treat heartworm disease was not so bad, to be honest. After the dog is treated you should start your pet on heartgard, interceptor or revolution ( all are excellent )Vetcare
