What is the best heart worm medication? Heart worm medication is something that has to be prescribed by a vet, so if you think that perhaps your dog has heart worm or your dog hasn't been checked for heart worm any time recently. Your vet is where you need to go for the first step for that. Most vets are going to prescribe Heart Guard, which is by in all the most popular, effective, and safe form of heart worm protection. He'll tell you to take it on a monthly basis, though it's a chewable tablet, though technically I believe Heart Guard actually last for something like thirty-eight days. A month is just a good indicator for most people. And help people keep on track as far as taking the medication or giving the animal the medication rather. There are other medications out there like Interceptor, and there are some topical ointment medications that you put on the dog that helps fight flea and tick as well as heart worm. Those don't seem to work all that well, and people have had some side effects with them, potential health problems for the animal. And there was also a injectable heart worm medication called Pro Health, however that was recalled due to the amount of problems that is was causing in the health of the animal that it was being administered on. So be wary of other medications that's out there for heart worm. Stick with the Heart Guard, there's really no reason not to use that one. And it is overall the best on the market.
