Did you ever wonder what you are preventing your dog from each month when you give the heartgard pill? In the pictures posted below, there is active microfilaria (baby heartworm) in a dogs bloodstream that we found under the microscope. It is important that pet owners stay current with giving their dogs heartgard each month to avoid this from happening. It is also important to have an annual check up with your vet so they can take a small blood sample and test to make sure they are still clear of this disease. The worms are spread simply through the bite of a mosquito.
