MosquitoDue to the influx of adoptions from the South, lately, we've been seeing more heartworm positive dogs than we have in recent years.

Heartworm is a serious disease that can affect your pet's heart and lungs as well as several other major organs. Heartworm is spread via mosquito bite and treatment can be costly, so prevention is the best course of action. 

We follow the recommendation of the American Heartworm Society to conduct annual heartworm testing and use year round heartworm preventatives. If you have any questions regarding your dog's current heartworm status or the preventatives we recommend, please contact us.

For more information about heartworm disease, check out this helpful infographic or visit the American Heartworm Soeciety's website

puppy kitten springIt’s that time of year again! Our Annual Spring Fling “Paws for Art” event is just around the corner, and we’d love for you to join us!

Middlebranch Veterinary is partnering with Putnam Humane and Happy Life Rescue to raise money for animals in need! This event is very special to us because it helps raise awareness and funds for these two wonderful organizations.

Protect your petTo better protect your dog against Lyme disease, we are now carrying the newest, most comprehensive vaccine called Vanguard crLyme.

This vaccine is unlike any other on the market, which is why any dog that has been vaccinated against Lyme disease previously will require an initial series of two vaccinations, followed by a yearly booster vaccine.

Please call us today at (845) 278-8000 to schedule your dog's vaccination and ensure your pet gets the best protection available.
