    Wish you had been more holistic in your response.
    There is no heartworm preventative medication, only treatments. Ivermectin actually kills the heartworm and does not prevent heartworm form entering the system. Additionally, it takes 3 months for the larvae to mature to the adult heartworm, therefore, monthly treatment is overkill, especially in states north of FL.
    It's too bad that consumers are so pushed to constantly medicate their pets which in the long run is damaging to their systems.
