Heartworm Day

It's Heartworm prevention day. We found a picture of a heart full of worms; but it is too revolting to show you. Take it from me. It was horrible. Since we've had so much rain, there are mozzies everywhere--they are the carriers. Some dogs have the yearly injection to protect them, but Alpha prefers the monthly treatment. That's because it gets rid of all worms, and Kendra and Bella suppliment their diets with disgusting things they find on walks.

We love the tablets. Kendra always begs for hers........actually, she begs for anything edible.

We're hoping there'll be seconds.

Kendra even tries licking out the packet. Oh well, that's it until next month. I hope you are protected from all those horrible things out there.


  1. Our Mom thinks giving us heart worm preventative is one of the best things she can do for our health. Can you believe she has to cut Pipers into little slices. We girls love them and would take his away but Mom guards him.

  2. great job guys! prevention is the key!

  3. We just got our a couple of days ago too! I can remember awhile back when I used to get a daily heartworm pill called filaribits but mom says they don't make those anymore! It was a daily treat instead of a monthly treat!

    Love ya lots

  4. We have those same treaties too! We LOVE em! In Florida we pretty much have skeeters all year round, cept this year and we had 3 cold months, a true rarity. We get these the first of each month. Nummy Num.

  8. I take those too, I love them, they're like little cookies!

  9. Yes, we are given those too! However, our humans are told that it does not get rid of all worms so we are given deworming pills too every 3 or 4 months.
