    I just saw that story. I hope they remain a rare parasite.

    Wow, now that is scary!
    I always had my boys on 12 months of heartworm protection. Since I live in MI I never thought I would be at risk.
    Curious about this statement "monthly heartworm prevention and a mosquito repellent” - is there a dog mosquito repellent?

    They do. Search for it on Chewy. There are a couple of natural ingredient brands, and ones that are similar to OFF.
