This is not usually something they recommend in this area. After seeing that picture, I think I will ask my Vet when we go for a scheduled appointment this afternoon.

We give Effie her tablet every month, since we live in the South.

In PA, we only gave tablets in the summer, our vet was OK with it.

I like to give it year round because of the protection against other types of worms,

We don't because of where we live. When we lived in MI we gave it to the dog monthly April/May through Oct/Nov.

Heidi gets Interceptor every month, year round. I don't care to take any chances with my girl.

Lola gets her monthly heartworm pill (Heartgard Plus) from May to October! I'm not taking any chances and dogs usually get blood tested only every 2nd year!
