The promise of heartworm prevention: An expert Q&A

Heartworm disease prevention and annual testing are a must for dogs and cats across the United States, says Dr. Stephen Jones. Here’s why.

Stephen Jones, DVM, knows a thing or two about heartworms. A general practitioner and partner at Lakeside Animal Hospital in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, Dr. Jones has treated thousands of heartworm infections in pets over the years and served on the board of the American Heartworm Society for more than a decade.

During a lecture at the 2020 Western Veterinary Conference, Dr. Jones noted that despite the fact that Dirofilaria immitis is increasingly found in both endemic and non-endemic areas across the U.S., questions remain about the need for heartworm disease prevention. He set out to answer those questions.
