After one month of weekly exposure of mosquitoes to heartworm- positive dogs, one group treated with a repellent insecticide and one group not treated, McCall found a repellency rate of 95%. Mosquito repellency is defined as antifeeding activity.

The insecticidal efficacy of treatment was also greater than 95%. This elevates the importance of understanding heartworm disease and discovering new strategies for prevention, diagnosis and treatment.” Proceedings from the event will be made available to veterinary professionals who didn't attend in in the peer-reviewed journal Veterinary Parisitology.

The signs of post-treatment complications include coughing, spitting up blood, labored or rapid breathing, lethargy, lack of appetite, and fever.

The preventives do not kill adult heartworms, and will not eliminate heartworm infection or prevent signs of heartworm disease if adults are present in the pet’s body.

Therefore, a blood test for existing heartworm infection is recommended before beginning a prevention program to assess the pet’s current heartworm status. A recent study at Auburn University has shown us a new side of feline heartworms. Dillon and Blagburn, with the financial backing of Pfizer Animal Health of New York, performed an amazing study1.

Given the challenges heartworm disease continues to present to the veterinary profession, discovering new strategies for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment is vital to reducing its impact.

The book takes each part of the veterinary day and explains the background, protocol, and expected outcome. Some veterinarians don't take the time to explain WHY a thing needs to be done, so that lack of understanding can impair the overall workings of the case.

This book. Active non-users reported statistically fewer discussions with their veterinary team about heartworm prevention and received fewer brand-specific recommendations than user groups did.
