Heartworm Disease

Spread by mosquitoes from infected dogs to unprotected dogs, this disease has been in our state for years. 

Mosquito
We continue to see many positive cases in the clinic.  The good news is that the prevention products on the market today are highly efficacious and safe to give. 

In fact, most products on the market now also kill other parasites in addition to heartworm microfilaria.  These vary between products, but often intestinal parasites, fleas and even biting flies can be addressed monthly with one product.  As some of the internal parasites that dogs carry also affect people, this additional benefit makes sense.

Check out the products that we carry and see our specials!

We can assist you in finding the heartworm prevention product that fits your pet, your budget, and your lifestyle.  Come in and visit us today!
