I currently work for a vet- we are moving towards “requiring” a yearly negative heartworm test even for animals that have been on preventative and have not missed doses. This is due to pressure from other clinics- it is a money maker. …which is not to say that it is a bad idea to test yearly- just that it can be expensive when you have a situation like Kathy has. To my knowledge, you can not purchase from places like pet meds, etc w/o a valid prescription. Some practices will allow you to refill yearlywith out a current test, but they are few and far between. It is a sadsituation to be in- to be able to rescue and provide a home and food, but to have to scrimp and do without medical care/prevention. Best of luck- Lisa G.
