Description

Dr. Susan Little, clinical parasitologist from Oklahoma State University, discusses what a positive heartworm test means in dogs. How often should veterinarians or veterinary technicians test canine patients for heartworm disease? What should one do when their patient is heartworm positive?

Dr. Little also discusses the process of heat-treating heartworm samples in dogs. As a veterinarian or veterinary technician, should you be performing an antigen heartworm test or a microfilaria test? What test should you use in your canine patient? When should we be performing the process of "heat-treating?" Due to the formation of antibodies against heartworm antigen, the process of heat-treating samples may be necessary in your samples.
