Have you heard of PetTrust Plus?  Probably not.  PetTrust Plus is a new generic heartworm medication by FidoPharm that is now available in Sam’s Clubs and Walmart Pharmacies nationwide.  The cost of this product is approximately 50% less than Heartgard, a popular heartworm preventative.

I do a lot of work in rescues and see heartworm positive dogs come through the door all the time.  It is so sad because it is preventable with just one tablet a month.

Pet owners will still need a prescription from their vet, but hopefully this will allow more pet owners to purchase the preventative especially those that might have cut back due to the poor economy.
