Did you know that April is National Heartworm Awareness Month? It is! Heartworm disease is spread by mosquitos and is prevalent in all 50 states. It takes about 6 months after being bitten by an infected mosquito for a dog to test positive for heartworms. Prevention is easy and MUCH less expensive than treatment.
Our Veterinarians agree that heartworm preventative needs to be given twelve months per year to be as effective as possible. An annual bloodtest to check for the disease is required in order to purchase a yearly supply of medication. We urge you to mark your calendars and to give your pet the monthly prevention regularly.
