Dewormers are typically available over the counter at pet stores and some grocery stores. Pyrantel and Panacur (Fenbendazole) are the two common products.

As for a heartworm preventative, those are only available with a veterinary prescription. You could try to use an online pharmacy and explain your situation. They may send you some Heartgard to help out. They're not too strict with those products.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
