Monthly Heartworm Medication

Studies presented on the FDA web site for oral monthly heartworm medication shows the efficacy for monthly heartworm medication is the same if given every month or every other month.

Every other month heartworm medication has been proven 100% effective against heartworms. This applies to all the oral heartworm medication brands on the market.

Why give a drug twice as often as needed? Would your physician give you medication twice as often as studies show is needed because it was traditional to do so?
