Give your clients the facts about the damage heartworm disease can do not only to their pet’s health but also to their pocketbook.

Many dog and cat owners don’t understand the serious implications of heartworm disease. In fact, many don’t even know how heartworm disease is transmitted. It’s the veterinary team’s job to convey parasite-related information to clients, including how heartwormdisease occurs, why it’s so dangerous and the cost of treatment versus prevention.

Owners who learn that treating heartworm disease—including medications, lab tests, radiographs, veterinary fees and posttreatment preventives—will put a major dent in their wallet may be more likely to follow prevention and testing recommendations.

Use this handout to help explain the vital importance of heartworm prevention to your clients.
