The dvm360 toolkit: Honing in on heartworm disease
Matters of the heart can get tricky. That’s why we’ve developed a host of tools to help you get a handle on heartworm disease in dogs and cats. (With an educational grant provided by Bayer)
Heartworm disease does not discriminate. Cats are equally at risk as dogs for this disease, but may be overlooked by veterinary professionals and pet owners alike. Your veterinary hospital may see many canine patients for yearly heartworm disease testing, but do you see just as many cats?
This toolkit focuses on heartworm treatment, testing and prevention, and provides you with the tools you need to have an educational conversation with your clients about this potentially deadly disease. Open up the discussion, and help keep all your patients protected.
