Default Re: Annual Vaccination, De worm, Heartworm & License

Hi, Dr. Clement.
My family and I adopted a mixed terrier dog, Sweetie after her owner (expatriate) and family left Malaysia for next job posting in another country. SXweetie is 7 or 8 years old.

We got Sweetie's health passport and advised by the previous owner that, we take Sweetie for her annual check-up and vaccination, which is due this coming September. Apart from that, we understand that there is no need to visit vet, unless Sweetie is not well and require medical attention.

I just heard from my friend about heartworm and kind of concerned because I do not know anything about this. Is this heartworm vaccination included during Sweetie's annual vaccination? And how do we know if Sweetie need to go for this vaccination or take tablets as prevention?

We are living near Wangsa Maju and would like to know where to apply dog license and how to apply..perhaps, there is a website on this for more info.

Please advise.

Thank you.
