    Thank you Ed for your posting.
    I am in the process of changing Tease's AKC registration (actually sent in 2 weeks ago) and if she comes back negative on her HW test, still plan on doing the breeding Phil so much wanted.
    I will keep in touch.

    Thanks, Ed. I have used ivermectin forever with no problems, so this is reassuring.

    I try to keep up-to-date on all the studies involved with heartworms. In studies we know the given dogs actually received the medication and received it all in the same manner. In the studies I have found all forms of heartworm treatment ( including injectable moxidectin) have failed except for the topical moxidectin(advantage multi). Not trying to stir up anything, but since I have my dogs on advantage multi I would like to know if anyone has found studies where advantage multi has failed or had resistance? I am not talking about articles that have no substantiation but actual scientific studies. In part, I am hoping it corrobates what I have found so far. But on the other hand, if I am overlooking some studies , I want to know also. Education is the key to prevention.
    For years we were told there was no resistance to heartworm products that were on the market. A variety of reasons were given why some dogs came down with heartworms that were on preventative. Now more recently, due to studies , resistance is finally being acknowledged. I hope these studies continue because they are the key to eventual prevention of heartworms and/or better treatment.
    Look forward to seeing if someone has the answer about the studies and advantage multi

    I live in Arkansas surrounded by rice fields which remain flooded most of the summer, mosquitoes are a problem. My 3yr old CBR was on heart guard year around and got heartworms. We test every six months. She went through the treatment and was heart worm free after a year. For the last four years I have been giving them the Ivemec liquid orally .1cc per 10lbs of body weight every month. In addition I have a 1/2 hp fan that blows through the kennels 24/7 from April to Oct. So far I have not been hit again, but I am always nervous now when we do the heartworm tests.

    Thanks for the post Dr. Ed. I question your 6th point. Or the Heartworm Society's 6th point.

    All statins aren't created equal, so why are all macrocyclic lactomes? 40 mg and then 80 mg of pravastatin didn't budge my LDL but 40 mg of atorvastatin put a pretty good dent in it.

    I pretty much live in the epicenter of all of the heartworm problems. I know several kennels were giving heartguard (merial) on 1rst and interceptor (now sentinel novartis) on 15th and still had some positive tests. Those kennels didn't change anything except their preventatives to advantage multi (bayer). No more positive tests. I know that's anecdotal as is my LDL cholesterol level. Is there a scientific explanation for this?

    Again, I'm skeptical of the American Heartworm Society's 6th point. They are Bayer, Elanco, Merial, Novartis, Zoetis, and Merck.

    I guess the AHS could be as indifferent to it's 'sponsors' as the United Nations is to it's main contributor, but I don't trust anything coming out of there either.
