The Impact of Heartworm on Historically Non-Endemic Areas and How to Respond to New Information and Strategies on Treatment and Prevention

Dr. Grant will dissect the trends in heartworm prevalence and incidence of heartworm disease nationwide and locally in the Portland Metro area looking at trends and current data up to the month prior to the meeting.  The lecture sparks discussion on updated information from CAPC and the American Heartworm Society on treatment and prevention of heartworm disease and additionally, the topic of resistant strains of heartworm and the risk these strains pose to us in Portland.
