Hollywood Feed University Presents Online Course on Heartworms in Pets: Everything You Should Know & How to Prevent Them

Hollywood Feed recently hosted a free virtual class, entitled “Heartworms in Pets: Everything You Should Know & How to Prevent Them” taught by board member of the American Heartworm Society, Angele Bice. This course was part of Hollywood Feed’s free pet wellness education resource known as Hollywood Feed University.

In this presentation, Angele taught that the best way to easily prevent heartworms in pets is by properly medicating them. Some of the key points of her presentation included which types of pets are at risk for heartworms including dogs, cats and ferrets. Other critical information she shared with participants included the importance of heartworm prevention, treatment options, how heartworms are transmitted, how they grow in your pets, symptoms that your pet may have heartworms, and the importance of using an appropriate and effective heartworm medication prescribed by a vet.
