I forgot to give my dog his heartworm pill on time. It is about a week late. Is it safe to give it to him now?
Hi Rsg,

Most heartworm medication is actually food for 45 days and not just a month. It is given on a monthly basis for ease in remembering to administer the medication. So it should be fine to give your dog the dosage now.

I hope this information is helpful to you.
