Heartworms are foot-long worms that live in the heart, lungs, and major blood vessels of pets. It sounds like something from a horror movie, but worse… it’s a reality. Whilst US dog owners rightly worry about heartworm, this parasite can also infect cats and ferrets, along with wild mammals such as coyotes, wolves, and foxes.
There’s nothing more refreshing for our homes than having beautiful, living plants. Some of these plants when ingested by your pup or kitty can make them feel less than energized and invigorated. Some can even be deadly. Here’s a list of the top most common plants that are poisonous to pets or can upset your furry friend’s day.
If your dog has intestinal worms, then any of the worming treatments can be used. There is no worming treatment that is 100% effective. Heartworm is more challenging to treat. Killing the worms can cause even more inflammation in your dog's blood vessels, and his symptoms may worsen significantly. For this reason, treating them is a two-step process.
