Dogs and cats who go outdoors should be protected with monthly medications against heartworm and other parasites common between the spring and fall, if not all year round. They should also receive annual heartworm antigen testing to ensure they are negative carriers before staring any monthly heartworm prevention treatments. Always get approved topical and oral preventative medications through your veterinarian for your pets safety. These include Revolution, Advantage(Multi), Heartguard, Sentinel, Advantix, and other veterinary-approved medications.
