GET READY FOR HEARTWORM SEASON!
Heartworm is a disease that is transmitted between dogs and mosquitos during the seasons of spring and fall. It can be fatal and treatment for heartworm can be risky and costly.
However, prevention is easy!
All dogs are at risk and those dogs that live outside, play outside or accompany you on camping trips are at a higher risk.
Make sure your dog is protected!
To ensure your dog is protected, call us now. A simple blood test will determine if your dog is heartworm free and ready to start the preventive medication.
