I have a question. Loki just got over a bout of roundworms. I wormed him and then we went for a checkup at the vet. The vet tested for heartworm and that was negative. Loki was then put on Heartguard. That was three weeks ago. Well, the roundworms are back. I asked the vet whether I should reworm him and he said no. He said the heartguard would take care of it. Now, I know that is what the box says...but I am unsure. Anybody have and thoughts or suggestions.

It's Heartguard Plus right? It's clear up the roundworms, but rounds come from fleas, so you may want to look into your flea control to prevent the roundworms entirely. Otherwise your dog can keep contracting them.

No problem. I have been obsessed the last few days and have done my worm research...yuk. Anyway, I am really hoping this heartguard kills them. It is so disgusting. Loki keeps reinfesting himself...I think because he can't keep grass, dirt, and sticks out of his mouth.
