In today’s VETgirl online veterinary CE podcast, we interview Dr. Brian DiGangi, MS, DABVP on what veterinarians, shelters and pet owners need to know about caring for heartworm-positive dogs. What should shelters consider when planning on treating heartworm positive dogs, and how can we best care for these dogs’ behavioral health while undergoing treatment? Dr. Brian DiGangi, MS, DABVP who is a Senior Director of shelter medicine for the ASPCA, is uniquely qualified to discuss this topic. He is board-certified in shelter medicine, as well as canine and feline practice, he is a past president of the Association of Shelter Veterinarians, and he has been on the American Heartworm Society board of directors for 6 years.
