I give my dog Ivermectin for heart worm protection. I volunteer in a rescue, and it is so sad and traumatic for the dog when we get one that is heart worm positive. I would NEVER take that chance with my dog. I give preventatives. We hike to a lot of places, and sometimes he's off leash. I don't always see what he's sniffing or licking from the ground. So, for his safety, I do a preventative and I urge everyone to do so.
I just want to point out that heartworm does not come from hiking, sniffing, licking or eating things. It is carried by mosquitoes.
I think that it is very important for people to know this, so that someone with a dog who is never off leash or what have you, won't think that they don't need heartworm preventative.
