Description

In today's VETgirl online veterinary CE podcast, we discuss transport of the heartworm-positive dog. Heartworm disease has been diagnosed in all 50 states, over the years moving from traditionally endemic areas to areas of the country where heartworm infection was once considered uncommon. Today, we're joined by Dr. Brian DiGangi, a diplomate of ABVP in canine and feline practice as well as shelter medicine. Dr. DiGangi is a senior director of Shelter Medicine with the ASPCA, a past-president of the Association of Shelter Veterinarians and a current officer on the American Heartworm Society board of directors. Tune in to learn how shelter veterinarians are addressing heartworm in their day-to-day work, what standards they are following in reducing the spread of infectious diseases such as heartworm disease, and what we can do to help protect pets from heartworm infection.
