Q. How much for treatment for heartworms my dog is 5 showing signs cough premature gray on head

A. The cost of heartworm treatment can vary from place to place, so I suggest you call around and ask various vets in your area what their costs are and what is included. If your dog is coughing already, that means his heartworm disease may be more advanced and he may require more intensive care and treatment. I do recommend getting it done as soon as possible, leaving it untreated will only lead to progressively increasing symptoms and more damage to the heart and lungs.
