The Pandemic Effects on Heartworm Prevention

"At the beginning of spring 2020, many veterinarians saw a drop in wellness visits and heartworm preventive sales," says Kristine Smith, DVM, DACZM, verterinary medical lead (preventives) for Zoetis Petcare in the U.S. "They pivoted quickly to curbside care and, though it was not the same experience with clients in the room with their pets, they still saw patients and got them the care they needed."

The American Heartworm Society (AHS) even offered recommendations in April 2020 to help veterinary clinics navigate the push for minimal non-emergency visits alongside the need to keep pets protected from heartowrm disease and avoid lapses in prevention.
