If your pet has been diagnosed as being heartworm positive, we treat with the injectable drug Immiticide. The patient will stay over night and go home with meds after treatment. Once treated, the time to keep your dog quiet is 6 weeks. If this may be a problem, please discuss this concern with one of our veterinarians before thinking about proceeding with this route of treatment.
It is very important that our pets be kept on Heartworm prevention EVERY month to avoid having the possibility of becoming heartworm positive. It is so much safer, if not cheaper to just keep your pet on prevention monthly rather than do a more serious and more expensive route such as Immiticide Treatment.
