Hello 'Fellow Deerstalkers'. I was considering whether it is necessary/advisable to treat my dogs for lung-worm and heart-worm. Both my dogs spend much of their time out and about in the countryside game-shooting and stalking. I shoot mostly in the NW of England and in SW Scotland over mixed farmland and forestry. I regularly 'worm' my dogs for the usual parasitic worms, but never for these two. I have spoken about this topic with my vet and naturally they recommend treatment for both. I'm just wondering how many of you treat your dogs for these two parasites? Are the two widespread and endemic? Or is the risk very small and localised? Your thoughts on this would be appreciated, thank-you.
