Heartworm prevention is essential. Heartworm is a worm that lives within the dog's heart and is spread by mosquitoes. It is now found in all parts of Australia.
Heart worm is potentially fatal and can be difficult to treat. A heartworm prevention program should be initiated from the time of your pet's first vaccination.
