What are heartworms and how can I prevent my pet from getting them?

Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes to dogs and cats. If your pet is not on preventative medicine, this parasite can imbed itself into your pet’s heart and mature into an adult. Left untreated, heartworm disease can be deadly to our pets. Monthly preventative medicine is much more affordable when compared to heartworm treatment. Our veterinarians have a variety of preventatives to offer you and your pet. Please call to have your pet heartworm tested and placed on a preventative today.
