The Inaugural Ace of Spades Pet Thread
[L, Elle & Misanthropic Humanitarian]

Good day to owners and lovers of pets. Well, you are really not owners you are the ownees. Long time pet owners know of which I speak.

Protecting your pet against heartworm The calendar says it is mid February. At the current time temps are hovering around zero, the ground white and more white stuff predicted. However other parts of the country are warming up and heading into spring. With spring comes the damn mosquito and the possibility of your pet acquiring heartworm. If your pet spends anytime outdoors please consider taking it to the vet for annual blood tests and the preventive meds that are on the market for heart worm.


The meds have come a long way since I first became a pet owner in the early '80s. It is now a monthly chore instead of daily. Price wise the drugs are reasonable. Some vets even sell individual doses in case you can not afford all 6 months at one time. Prevention is cheaper than treating heartworm. Our dogs love the taste of the medicine. They think the medicine is a treat. Unfortunately, these prevention medications are not over the counter. So you will need to take your little buddy to see the vet first.

Lyme's Disease and pets Also making a spring appearance with mosquitoes are the numerous varieties of ticks. Often these guys show up before mosquitoes. Tick diseases are not as prevalent as heartworm. In the upper Mid-West we see wood ticks and deer ticks regularly. Ticks can carry several diseases. Lyme Disease being the most common. Again, regular check ups with the vet and preventive medication on the market will help keep your pet healthy. Most of the tick prevention medications can be purchased over the counter.
