Heartworm disease kills a lot of dogs, especially in Georgia. Once a dog has heartworms they need expensive injections, or long term treatment to rid their body of them. They are easily preventable with a monthly pill, but the pills typically cost between $10-$20 dollars a month, making them unaffordable for people who struggle to make ends meet.
There's a new product out on the market called PetTrust Plus, and it has the exact same ingredients as Heartgard for a fraction of the cost. For a limited time until January 31, 2013, you can get PetTrust Plus from Walmart pharmacies for only $1 a month!
In order to get PetTrust Plus your dog needs to have a heartworm test done. You can get this test done for only $22 at WellPet Humane's walk in clinic at 5348 Peachtree Rd in Chamblee, Georgia. Just stop in with your dog between 8am-12pm or 1pm-4pm Monday through Saturday. You don't need to make an appointment, and there's no exam fee for adult dogs.
Once you dog has tested negative ask the vet to write you a prescription for PetTrust Plus. Bring the prescription to your local Walmart pharmacy before January 31st, and receive a year's suppy of heartworm preventative for only $12, or 6 months for $6.
If you're not able to take advantage of this deal before January 31st, you can still get a great deal on heartworm preventatives by purchasing them directly from WellPet Humane. They sell Tri-Heart Plus for $17-$29 for a 6 month supply, depending on the size of the dog.
