April is Heartworm Awareness Month in the United States. According to renowned dog trainer Cesar Millan, this means every dog owner should take the time to educate themselves on the disease. More than 130,000 dogs tested positive for heartworms in the United States last year, so the issue is more important now than ever. Cesar joined us on Good Morning Utah to talk more about this disease and how to prevent it. 

Heartworms are primarily spread through mosquito bites and early signs of the disease include coughing, lethargy, and decreased appetite. What’s the key to avoiding heartworms? Cesar says HEARTGARD Plus is the way to go. It’s the #1 veterinarian-recommended heartworm preventative in the form of real-beef chews that are easy to give. Always consult a veterinarian to see if HEARTGARD Plus is right for your dog.
