Heartgard is a medication for dogs that can be taken once per month to prevent heartworms. It comes in beef chewable tabs so that your dog will want to eat it. Heartgard also has a Plus version that additionally protects your dog against hookworms and roundworms. You can get Heartgard through your vet or save a few dollars by buying it without a prescription in Canada.
Use Petdrugs.com (see resources), one of Canada's top websites for selling Heartgard. Shipping is a flat $6.95 if you live in the United States, but is free if you order over $99 worth of the Heartgard. Since your pet will need the Heartgard once per month, it makes sense to stock up and take advantage of the free shipping.
