It’s important to administer a heartworm preventative regularly because heartworm disease, though preventable, is fatal if not treated in time. If a dog is bitten by an infected mosquito, worms grow in the bloodstream and settle in the heart, causing certain death if not addressed. Even when heartworm is diagnosed, treatment takes several weeks, and it is very uncomfortable for the dog. By the time the dog exhibits outward symptoms of heartworm disease, it may be too late.

Ivermectin is considered a relatively safe medication for treating most dogs. But there can be side effects -- especially if the dogs are given too large a dose or if the medication is given in combination with a sedative such as Valium, an amitraz dip or other amitraz treatment, or the flea preventative Comfortis. Depression, lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite, lack of coordination, seizures and excessive salivation may result.
