Prevent Heartworm In Pets

Prevent Heartworm before you have to treat it!

Treatment:

Dog’s heart, liver, and kidney functions will have to be evaluated first to be sure they are strong enough to endure treatment.

Adult worms are eliminated with an arsenic-based compound.

After treatment is administered the dog is restricted to rest for several weeks. This is to make sure the body absorbs the dead worms. If the dog were to exert its body the dead worms may “break loose” and end up in the lungs. Heartworms in the lungs can cause respiratory failure and death to the dog. This type of treatment goes on for weeks until heartworm tests come back negative.

In advanced cases of heartworm disease a dog may be required to go under surgical removal. In cats this high risk surgery has only been successful once in veterinary history.

In the cases of early detection a long term treatment of taking doxycycline and Heartgard Plus daily for more than a year has shown to be effective.  Early detection of heartworm disease is difficult due to it being majorly asymptomatic.

Prevention:

There are several veterinary drugs available to prevent heartworm infection. Options for prevention include medications that can be taken orally or applied topically on the pet. These preventative drugs are more than 99% effective in protecting dogs and cats from heartworm disease and some even help control fleas and ticks (though this option may vary depending on the drug). DV Medical Supply recommends check up appointments with your pet’s veterinarian. At the very least, pet owners should get pets heartworm tested annually.

Cephalexin

cephalexin

Found at DV Medical Supply

Cephalexin is an antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body. This means it treats bacterial infections such as ear infections, skin infections, upper respiratory infections, and as well as urinary tract infections. It should be said, as always, check with your doctor before taking any medication if it is okay to take it. It could be very dangerous for some to take Cephalexin because some people may be dangerously allergic to it. When using this medication you have to make sure to take it at a specified time every day that is prescribed by a doctor. The symptoms of the infection can be fully treated even before the specified time period ends but you must continue with the treatment. This will not treat a viral infection such as the flu or cold. The storing of the tablets should be in a room temperature area but the liquid form medication needs to be refrigerated. If any of the medication is not used after fourteen days you should throw the remainder away.

When going through the treatment the common side effects that may occur are:

  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness; feeling tired
  • Headache
  • Joint pain
  • Vaginal itching or discharge

Here at DV Medical Supply, Inc. we supply Cephalexin to professional medical practitioners that can also treat the infections of dogs. Here is how you can use it for your furry companion.

Cephalexin is an antibiotic that treats bacteria in animals that can become the cause of a staph infection, a urinary tract infection, hot spots on the skin, a bone infection, a respiratory tract infection, an ear infection, and/or an e coli infection. The dosage of the medication is typically 10-15mg for each pound of body weight but always consult with your veterinarian first.

When your pet is taking this medication the common side effects that may occur include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Weight loss

Health is important not only for you but as well as your furry friend.
