Heartworm Testing

When mosquitoes bite, they can transmit heartworm infection. Those heartworms can wreak havoc on both dogs and cats. These parasites can severely and sometimes fatally damage the heart, lungs, and blood vessels of dogs and cats.

Treatment for heartworm disease in dogs is far more expensive than prevention and potentially life threatening. There is no approved treatment for cats.

Fortunately, we can perform yearly heartworm screening on your pet, and you can then administer a monthly medication to prevent heartworm disease.  Ask us about how the benefits of testing for heartworm disease.
