For what it's worth. About eight or nine years ago while my daughter was going to college she had a dog that shall we say was basically a mutt. She took the dog in for her shots and they talked her into testing the dog for heartworms. Test came back positive. The vet quoted her much more than she could afford and I being the mean Dad, I refused to spend that much money on the dog. I was worming my own dogs with ivermectin and talked to some other dog friends and one of them told me that he had a positive dog once and he went with ivermectin every two weeks instead of once a month. Thats what we did for about six months and then went back to regular dose once a month. Now we never did retest that dog for heart worms but she went on to live a long life and never appeared to have any long lasting effects. Like I said for what it's worth......
