Description

Dr. Clarke Atkins, DACVIM, discusses the controversy of "slow-kill" for canine heartworm disease. If your canine patient was just diagnosed with heartworm, find out if it is indicated or contraindicated to use slow-kill protocols. Not only is slow kill slow, expensive, and potentially dangerous, but it can result in pulmonary emboli and secondary vascular damage.

Dr. Matt Miller, DACVIM (Cardiology), discusses the role of doxycycline, the commonly used antibiotic, in the treatment of heartworm disease. Should veterinarians routinely be using doxycycline to help prevent resistance in treating heartworm? If your patient was just diagnosed as heartworm positive, find out if you should use doxycyline or not.
