Another question: is your dog healthy enough for these medications? The “Heartworm Prevention” page of the states: “Healthy kidneys and normal liver functions are essential in metabolizing most medications.” Many dogs, including my Jiggy, do not have healthy organ function. I wonder how many unhealthy animals are nevertheless on meds?

Anne – the information in the article IS correct.
The difference is mg (solids) vs ml (liquids) — that’s why it’s so important to read CLOSELY before dispensing meds to our dogs 😀 Insulin & Diabetes Medications for Dogs & Cats - 1800PetMeds

Two exceptions: 1) “Forgetful” and irresponsible pet parents who won’t begin the medication on time or build their dog’s natural immunity might want to medicate year round, although that means they have to remember to give meds every month. 2) If your dog contracts heartworms within a few years of beginning medication … and you can show you gave meds year round … and your dog had the required blood tests (2 or 3), you may benefit a little financially because drug companies will pay for dog’s treatment. (Read the terms published by an on-line seller.)Remember, you kill heartworm babies after the fact. You can only “prevent” them by avoiding mosquitoes. (You can also kill them with a healthy immune system.) This means starting meds 30-45 after the weather warms and mosquitoes appear. Also, Washington State University warns, “If your pet travels to heartworm areas, prevention needs to be administered within 30 days of exposure to infected mosquitoes. Adult dogs (older than 6 mos.) need to be tested before starting preventative.”If you’re not going to use meds, homeopathic veterinarian wrote me that he advises semi-annual testing when not using preventatives. My own vet, , agrees. Testing twice yearly helps you catch disease early when it’s easier to treat. Dr. Martin Goldstein in The Nature Of Animal Healing says: “Only a small percentage of dogs who get heartworm die of it, especially if they’re routinely tested twice yearly for early detection. Even in untreated dogs, after a period of uncomfortable symptoms, the adult worms die….”That’s the beauty of testing every 4 months … you know it takes at least 5 months for the microfilaria to develop into the harmful adult heartworms, so if your dog’s test is positive, you can just give him regular heartworm meds for a bit or, if you’re holistically minded like me, you can treat him holistically with the help of your holistic or homeopathic vet.Your dog’s heartworm meds probably cost from $5 to $20 per month, depending on his size. You probably also test in the spring before starting the meds if you live in a colder climate. Testing is typically $30 to $50 per test.Welcome to Joe's.
