Heartworm FACTS

The American Heartworm Society encourages testing on an annual basis. Heartworms are transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito. Pets may not show signs until late in the course of heartworm disease.  When was the last time we tested your pets for heartworms?

Signs of heartworm disease: Coughing, difficulty breathing, panting, exercise intolerance, decreased activity level, sudden death.

Heartworm disease is preventable. There’s no reason a dog should have it today.

Myth: Only outdoor pets are at risk of contracting heartworm disease. (You know those pesky mosquitoes can fly into the house.)

Heartworm prevention can save you money in the long run, not to mention it can save your pet’s life.

A heartworm infection is difficult to treat in dogs, and there’s no approved treatment for cats. Good thing it’s easy to prevent!

Our heartworm tests is accurate to as few as one female heartworm.

Heartworms can be hard to detect but we can help! Ask us how before they cause severe disease.
