What to do if you miss a dose of Heartworm Preventitive

It can happen to any of us.  What to do if you miss a dose of your dogs heartworm preventive?

If you miss one month. Give a dose right away and continue with the new date from that point forward.

If you miss two months, start up right away and consider giving the antibiotic Doxycycline for one month.

If you miss 7 or more months, get a heartworm test done and then get back on a monthly schedule.

If you EVER have any questions or concerns, Please call you Vet.

Refer a friend and you will BOTH receive $10 off your next visit!

  • "Wow! Thanks to all the staff at Anderson Vet Clinic. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in. Fortunately, it’s usually just for a check-up, but I would not leave Lola in anyone else’s hands but yours. Thank you for your caring commitment!"
    Maya Smith / Los Angeles, CA
  • "I have benefited tremendously from the care my pet received from Dr. Anderson."
    John Doe / San Diego, CA
  • "Fabio wasn’t eating the food I was giving him and I didn’t feel he was getting the nutrition he needed. Thanks to Dr. Anderson, he evaluated Fabio and his current diet to make some recommendations and now Fabio has gone from barely eating to finishing his meals and he looks healthier than ever. You clearly are an expert in your field...thanks so much!"
    Tara Brown / Kansas City, MO
