I'm not going to argue, just say what I have read and have been told. I'm also not going to be scared into poisoning my dogs every month. I also have to add that I have problems explaining myself sometimes, but I'll try the best I can.
If the heartworms are not treated by a certain point then it can be a problem. It takes them time to get to that point so testing yearly or biyearly can detect them while they are in the larval stage. If they are detected while still in that stage they are easy to treat. It isn't real common around here, maybe if I were in the south I'd rethink it, but I'm not. Everyone will do what they feel is best for their dog(s). I've seen what a traditionally raised dog is like, I've seen what a more naturally raised dog is like. I've seen the positive changes in my cat, who was already over five when I switched him to raw and quit putting poisons on him. I've seen the changes in Vegas too, when he was a puppy. Everyone else has been switched as soon as they come into my home. I have a great vet who supports the choices I make with them. A healthy immune system works wonders, sadly my immune system sucks. But I do what I can for my animals.
