Is Heartworm Testing Really Necessary? DEAR PAW'S CORNER: My vet tells me my dogs have to be tested for heartworm every two years, even though they take heartworm medication regularly. Why? It's expensive -- one test times three -- and I don't see why it's necessary. Seems like a way for the vet to make money. -- Dog Mom in New York DEAR DOG MOM: It's a valid question, but there really is a good answer for why the veterinar-

April 11 - 17, 2013 ian insists on testing your dogs for heartworm. The reason is that monthly heartworm medications, while billed as "preventative," work by killing off the microfilariae (heartworm larvae) that enter a dog's bloodstream through an infected mosquito's bite. The medication doesn't stop mosquitoes from biting your dog; therefore, there's still a risk of heartworm infection even though it is taking preventive medication. The other reason is that the doctor can't be 100 percent sure that your dogs are taking their heartworm medication every month. He doesn't administer the medicine, so -- while you probably are giving your dogs their monthly dosage right on schedule -- he can't take your word for it. That's because, as you know, there are some pet owners who don't give pets their heartworm preventive on schedule. To reduce the number of heartworm infections, and keep your dogs healthy, the vet has to check them regularly. He does it every two years because it can take several months for an infection to be detected. Some vets test for infection every year, particularly in regions with a high infection risk. What if the vet detects a heartworm infection? He'll treat your dog with a much stronger medication to kill the heartworms. The healthier your dog is when treatment starts, the better it will be able to tolerate the treatment. Send your questions or comments to Did you know mosquitoes can transmit heartworm larvae to dogs, but fleas don't? Find out more in my new book "Fighting Fleas," available now on Amazon.

by Samantha Weaver

• It was pioneering science-fiction author H.G. Wells who made the following sage observation: "Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo." • In a match between a 200-pound mountain lion and a 20-pound porcupine, the lion is likely to be the loser -- and will probably die if it tried to take a bite of the desired prey. • In an odd coincidence, President Abraham Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy, and President John F. Kennedy had a secretary named Lincoln. Kennedy the secretary told Lincoln the president that he shouldn't go to Ford's Theatre the night he was shot; Lincoln the secretary tried to convince Kennedy the president not to go on a trip to Dallas, where he was shot. • Those who study such things say that Americans watch more television during the months of January and February than at any other time during the year. • You may not realize it, but you've probably seen pictures of the French village of Mont-St.Michel. It's a picturesque place, a tiny islet in the English Channel with an 8th-century abbey at the top of a high hill, surrounded by stone houses and cobbled streets. It wasn't always an islet, though; the hill on which the abbey sits was once surrounded by an oak forest, and the shore was miles away. That all changed in the year 725, though, when an earthquake struck the region. A tidal wave washed over the forest, leaving a vast tidal plain in its wake. Ever since, twice a day, 40-foot tides completely surround Mont-St.-Michel. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

• On April 28, 1789, three weeks into a journey from Tahiti to the West Indies, the HMS Bounty is seized in a mutiny led by Fletcher Christian, the master’s mate. Captain William Bligh and 18 of his loyal supporters were set adrift in a small, open boat. Bligh and his men reached Timor in the East Indies in June, after a voyage of about 3,600 miles. • On April 24, 1800, President John Adams approves legislation to appropriate $5,000 to establish the Library of Congress. The first library catalog, dated 1802, listed 964 volumes and nine maps. Twelve years later, the

• On April 26, 1937, during the Spanish Civil War, the German military tests its powerful new air force -- the Luftwaffe -- on the Basque town of Guernica in northern Spain. One-third of Guernica’s 5,000 inhabitants were killed or wounded, and fires engulfed the city and burned for days. • On April 23, 1954, Hank Aaron hits the first home run of his Major League Baseball career. Twenty years later, Aaron became baseball’s new home-run king when he broke Babe Ruth’s long-standing record of 714 career homers. • On April 27, 1963, Margaret Annemarie Battavio’s very first single, “I Will Follow Him,” reaches No. 1 on the U.S. pop charts. At age 15, the singer better known as Little Peggy March became the youngest female performer ever to top the Billboard Hot 100. • On April 22, 1970, Earth Day, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time. Millions of Americans participated in rallies, marches and educational programs.

My Social Security

There is an easier way to get answers from Social Security than sitting on hold on the phone. Social Security's website (http:// has a long list of things you can do online after creating a My Social Security account: get your benefits verification letter, get your statement, apply for retirement or disability benefits, appeal a disability decision, estimate your retirement benefits, check your application status and so much more. The biggest concern, however, is that if you've done a Google search about the topic, you easily could end up at a fake website that is not Social Security. For example, replacing your card is free, but if you accidentally wander to a scam site, they'll want to charge you as much as $50. Not only that, but they'll have your Social Security number when

you type it in. If you marry and want a card in your new name, you'll need to contact Social Security directly. Don't fall for an online scam. Even if you haven't hunted online for information yet you receive what looks like Social Security email, beware. Social Security will never send you email asking for information such as your name or number. Any emails asking for that are from scammers. If you receive that kind of email, call the real Social Security administration immediately at 1-800-772-1213 or the fraud hotine at 1-800269-0271. Do the same if you receive a phone call from someone pretending to be from Social Security. They might have excuses, such as their computer system went down or they need to verify your banking direct-deposit information. If you sign up online for a genuine My Social Security account, beware. Be sure what webpage you're on. Remember to look for the ".gov" at the end of the address.

MRI Can Verify Gulf War Illness Gulf War illness is not psychological, and scientists can prove it. Researchers at Georgetown University were able to see the damage to the brain in 31 test veterans with Gulf War illness. The findings, published recently in the PLOS ONE journal, describe how a fast and definitive diagnosis can be produced. Specifically, they looked at brain fibers that process pain. In veterans with Gulf War illness, those fibers never turn off. Pain is constant. The key here is that researchers (or doctors) can see the actual damage to the fibers with a machine that many hospitals have -- an MRI, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging. All that's needed is special software called fMRI. Knowing that Gulf War illness is not psychological is not new. Studies have linked it to 19901991 exposure to sarin gas, pesticides, oil-well fires, smoke, petroleum, anti-nerve-gas pills and a whole array of vaccinations, including anthrax and botulinum toxoid. A partial list of illnesses tied to exposure: Chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, muscle and joint pain, headache, memory problems and skin conditions. What's been seen in the 250,000 veterans who were exposed is that the illness doesn't go away. It gets worse as time goes on. Veterans who meet certain criteria can receive disability compensation, starting with a Gulf War Registry health exam. Enrollment in Department of Veterans Affairs health care is not required to get the free exam. Also available is the full range of VA health care. However, there is a time limit: Per the VA website, symptoms must be present for at least

Q: Will "Major Crimes" be back? I enjoyed the first season and felt it had a good cast. Hope we will see them again. -- Amma B., via e-mail A: As I reported in an earlier column, "Major Crimes," which stars Mary McDonnell and is a spinoff of "The Closer," will return for a 15-episode second season. But now I have a premiere date to give you: June 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. I have a few more premiere dates of TNT favorites to reveal. Season three of "Falling Skies" begins June 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT with a twohour season premiere. Gloria Reuben (Noah Wyle's fellow "ER" alum) and Robert Sean Leonard ("House") are set to guest-star this season. Season four of "Rizzoli and Isles" will start up June 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the second-season premiere of "Perception" at 10 p.m. "Franklin & Bash" kicks off its third season on June 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, as Heather Locklear joins the cast as the firm's newest partner. ••• Q: I love the new ABC show "How to Live with Your Parents," especially Elizabeth Perkins. How does she like her new show? -- Jeanette T., via e-mail A: When I spoke with Elizabeth recently, she told me what a joy it is to play Elaine in "How Elizabeth Perkins to Live": "There's nothing ordinary about Elaine, and I love it. I don't take ordinary roles. I sort of gravitate toward the odd ducks, and she's definitely an odd duck. "Elaine is just filled with positive energy and life. And for her, the glass is always half-full. There's always a positive outcome to everything, and she's completely nuts. I'm having a ball. She doesn't censor anything she feels or says. She puts her foot in her mouth, and she's completely unaware that she has. That's been a real treat for me." ••• Q: Since Jimmy Fallon will be taking over "The Tonight Show" when Jay Leno retires, does this mean Conan O'Brien could return to "Late Night"? -- Debbi W., Akron, Ohio A: While all of this is still speculation and rumor, Jimmy is reportedly taking over "The Tonight Show" beginning in fall 2014. TBS recently announced that Conan's show has been renewed through November 2015. In Hollywood, anything is possible, but if Conan were to return to NBC, it would have to be when his contract with TBS is up. If they need someone to host "Late Night" during the one-year interim, my vote is with Joel McHale. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.
