Due 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.
