"How Can I Order Heartgard Plus Online?...

Heartgard Plus is a monthly preventative that everyone should give to their pets. This product prevents heartworm  infestation, and also controls hookworms and roundworms. All three of these parasites can make your dog very ill, and can even be fatal.

Therefore, as a loving pet owner, it is your responsibility to protect your dogs. Prevention is the key, and Heartgard Plus is one product that is safe and effective.

Heartworm disease is transferred from one animal to another via mosquitoes. Adult heartworms living within one host will release Microfilaria (heartworm larvae) into the bloodstream of that host. Mosquitoes taking in blood from the infected host will become infected with the Microfilaria.

When the mosquito bites your dog, the infective larvae will enter him or her through the bite wound and live just beneath the skin for up to two weeks. They will then move to the chest and abdominal muscles of your pet. A few months later, the larvae will enter the blood stream and enter the heart and lungs.

They will grow into adults, measuring up to 30cm in length. Your pet’s infestation may be minor or severe, and may show no symptoms of the disease until it is too late.

That is why it is vital that you prevent the infection before it even starts. Heartgard Plus can do this. If you have not done so already, you must have your pet tested for the disease before starting his or her monthly dose. Heartgard Plus requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

If you give an infected dog a preventative, it could possibly cause a severe reaction, and on rare cases lead to death. When you take your pet to the doctor, a simple blood test will be performed and you will know within minutes whether or not he or she has the disease. Once given a clean bill of health, you can begin to give your pet monthly dosing of Heartgard Plus.

Your dog’s Heartgard Plus will come in the form of a beef flavored tablet. Most dogs actually eat it as if it is a treat. If your dog refuses to chew it, or spits it out, it can be wrapped in cheese or a bit of peanut butter to make it even more tasty.

Remember that Heartgard Plus is an anti-parasitic medicine that is given only once a month. Your dog’s dosage will be based on weight and it is also very important that you do not miss a monthly dose. Your dog could become infected in the one month that you forget to give him his preventative. You will then have to spend more money by paying for another doctor visit, and another blood test.

Every year there are a tremendous number of dog fatalities due to heartworms. That is why prevention is so very important. Most pet owners consider their animals to be family members. You love your dog.

Start him or her on Heartgard Plus right away. The cost of the preventative is token compared to the possibility of losing something that you love so very much.

Once the veterinarian has prescribed Heartgard Plus for your dog, you do have the option of purchasing it over the computer so that you won’t have to make trips to the doctor for purchase.

You may also find discounts over the Internet, on your computer. Your dog is devoted to you. Be devoted in return and start him or her on Heartgard Plus as soon as possible.
