Heartworm disease is a damaging and sometimes deadly disease caused by a parasite that is carried from pet to pet by mosquitoes. The heartworm migrates to the heart where they mature to adult worms. All dogs, and cats that go outside, should be on heartworm preventative.
If your pet is not on preventative, ask one of our Doctors about a antigen heartworm test. This is a test that is performed in the clinic and results are usually done by the next day.
For protection from heartworm and intestinal parasites, we recommend year round prevention. To make sure your pet has taken and absorbed the together.
