I am from So CAL, and now live in Western North Carolina, in CA we did not need to use Heartworm prevention, where I live now in the summer months it is hot and humid we have a creek and a small swamp near by so we must use it. Tapeworms are also common here even on dogs who use flea protection, over half of the dogs going in to rescue here test postive for Heartworms, the only good news is up to date Vets do not treat it in the old way, they do it over a longer period of time with less poison, in the old days many of the dogs would die from the treatment. I do not treat in early spring part of fall or winter months.
