The first part of the discussion regarding reservoirs, spread, endemic areas was easy to understand and instructive. The section on reach back was a little confusing.

Description

Dr. Matt Miller, DACVIM (Cardiology), discusses the impact of just ONE positive heartworm dog and how it impacts your neighborhood or town. This was seen with Hurricane Katrina, where heartworm positive dogs were rescued and disseminated throughout the United States to areas that didn't traditionally see heartworm. Veterinarians and veterinary technicians, along with those who help rescue and place dogs throughout North America, must be aware of the impact of heartworm on your town.
Dr. Clarke Atkins, DACVIM, discusses how veterinary professionals should treat the "missed" dose of heartworm preventative. Pet owners can accidentally forget to dose their pet. What is the impact or risk to the pet when this occurs? How should veterinarians and veterinary technicians better educate pet owners to prevent this from happening?
