CAMERA CARE Don't leave film in the sun or in a car's hot glove compartment or trunk. Reload your camera in the shade, When flying, avoid X-ray baggage inspections. Despite what they say. the radiation can wreck your film. Ask to have your camera bag hand-checked. Clear, self-sealing plastic bags are handy for protecting cameras and gear from rain showers and dampness--but they are not tight enough for protection in underwater photography. Keep your hands on your camca gear and it is less likely to be lost or stolen. When home again, have your film processed as soon as possible.

Heartworm serious in dogs Many dogs annually fall victim to presence ot tte worms. canine heartworm disease. If unde- tected, the disease can lead to heart and lung damage and even death. warns the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American I-]eartworm Society. Canine heartworm disease is caused by long white worms -- Dirofilaria immitis. The infective larvae spread from dog to d,g by mosquitoes. The disease can reach advanced stages and even cause death, before signs are apparenl to the owner. The disease can be detected hv a blood test. Sometimes a veterinarian uses x-rays, repeated bleed tests and other laboratory tests to confirm the Most infected dogs can be treated successfully. While there is some risk involved in treating a dog for heartworms, fatal reactions are rare in otherwise healthy dogs. Prevention is the best medicine. The Society recommends that in areas where the disease is a problem, dogs should be regulary examined and started on a preventive program.
