What’s the difference between the oral or topical heart worm medication? The oral treatments come as pills or tasty, chewable tablets to give your dog once a month. They’re highly affective and some also protect against other parasitic worms. If your dog is fussy and won’t take pills, there are topical treatments You apply a drop or so to her skin between the shoulder blades once a month. These also control fleas and some control ticks too. They’re easy to apply but if part of the dose gets stuck on your dogs fur, or gets washed away, your dog might not be protected. Another pet can lick off the medication which is not good for either of them. Many veterinarians are prescribing heart worm medication for cats too. This medication is designed especially for felines.
