Did you know that heartworm season is here?

Did you know that heartworm is spread by mosquitoes? When a heartworm positive mosquitoe bites a dog the larvae is left on the skin which can migrate into the blood stream.

Did you know that even if your dog is on heartworm prevention year around, your dog should still be tested?  Nothing is 100% guaranteed so why take the risk; we suggest testing every other year.

Did you know that your dog might have heartworm and you may not even know it? It can take years to have your dog show signs of being heartworm positive.

Did you know that heartworm are real worms that can live in your pet's heart?  Gross we know.

If you have any questions or want to discuss heartworm with us please give us a call and we would be more than happy to help.
