|Heartgard® Plus Chewables
Dog's Name: Pete
Breed: Mixed Hound
Age: 6 years
His story: Pete's owners had not thought seriously about giving Pete heartworm prevention all year long until their next-door neighbor's dog acquired heartworm disease. They were very close to their neighbors and saw first hand the pain and expense they went through to get their dog well. It became abundantly clear to Pete's owners how serious the situation was and that a dog could die from the disease - and even from the treatment for the disease. Pete's owners talked to their veterinarian and learned that there were other heartworm cases in their area.
Outcome: Pete is on Heartgard® Plus all year long now, and his owners now have peace of mind. The bonus is that the owners don't have to worry about intestinal worms, either. He still gets a heartworm test every year from his veterinarian.
