Heartworm prevention for dogs is an important concern for every pet owner.
This parasitic infestation is a serious medical problem and will lead to a permanent damage if it is untreated. But the good news is, heartworm infestation is completely preventable. By giving your dog the heartworm medication for the recommended period of time, you can protect your dog from this nasty parasite.
Our clinic is located in Tokyo and the recommended treatment period is from May until the end of December, or year-round protection if desired.
There are a variety of preventives including monthly chewable pills and topical 'spot on' products. Some can protect your dog from intestinal parasites or external parasites ( such as fleas and ticks ) as well as heartworms.
We will be happy to figure out which type of treatment that best suits your dog!
