YIKES! Did you know, pups and doggies from Newfoundland, that we are the island of Newfoundland is the only place in North America that has reported the parasite of French Heartworm?! It was first found in Europe in the 1800s, and can infect both dogs and foxes. The first found source in Newfoundland was in 1973. It can be extremely dangerous, especially to puppies. That is why it is so important to take a flea and worm medication. It is particularly hospitable on the Eastern part of the province due to our moderate temperature year-round. Both Sentinel and Advantage Multi protect against French Heartworm.
Here's a pamphlet for you to become informed on French heartworm! We love our doggie friends and want to make sure you are protected!
