Heartworm prevention is on the minds of most pet owners and most conventional veterinarians offer treatments that are toxic to those we love most. Most Holistic and Homeopathic veterinarians warn against buying into the profitable spot-drop and pill solution for heartworm prevention because of the harm these treatments can cause.
The most complete and detailed review of holistic heartworm prevention can be found from Dr. Will Falconer. He offers resources that clearly explain not only how to prevent heartworms, but how to prevent disease and other chronic illnesses in dogs and cats.
The top 5 areas crucial to health and heartworm prevention: nutrition, vaccination (an interesting and widely-debated topic between conventional and holistic practitioners), toxic exposure, disease outcomes, and lifestyle.
A great first step in preventing heartworms is to reduce you dog's exposure to mosquitoes. A quick mist of Wondercide's plant-based Flea & Tick Pets + Home before outdoor playtime will protect them. Flea & Tick Pets + Home is a powerful mosquito repellent. By repelling mosquitoes that carry heartworm, you reduce the chance of your dog being infected.
Protect your dog or cat by offering proper nutrition and exercise. Avoid conventional pesticides, fertilizers, and home cleaners with toxic ingredients. Then use Wondercide's Flea & Tick Pets + Home spray as the first-line of defense against those mosquitoes. These simple steps will make your pet stronger and more capable to fight off natural predators that cause disease and illness caused by heartworms.
*Wondericde is a topical spray and does not get into your pet's bloodstream so it can't eliminate heartworms already present. Consult your veterinarian for the best total heartworm prevention routine.
