Headlines read: Heartworms are on the rise in pets taking preventatives.
Interesting stuff? Frightening stuff?
My own personal belief about this is that these dogs immune systems are so shot and compromised that they can not work properly to keep these or any other “parasite” under control.
First of all, Heartworm meds such as the one pictured above are NOT preventatives, there are in fact toxic pesticides designed to kill the heart worm larvae in the blood before they can develop into adults and migrate to the heart and lungs.

I have been discussing my beliefs about heartworm and the immune system with Dr Patricia Jordan and I wanted to share her recent email and request to me in hopes of having those of you fitting the criteria write testimonials. Please read below and leave a comment or send me a private email if you can help.
I think we should get anyone who has testimonials from LA, MS Delta area or coastal NC,SC,GA,FL that doesn’t administer heartworm prevention and get what they do use. Also if they have the dogs tested yearly, or every two years and by what method. Funny, Arkansas now locked in with this story.
There are many states that the dogs don’t get heartworm prevention and then every day have positive dogs coming into their clinic. I wonder if these dogs were on heartworm prevention of if this group just used the reports from the Mississippi and LA Delta area and are being the rugs for business for their hospitals based on mongering the info from LA and MS.
