Exposure to mosquitoes can cause your pet to be infected with heartworm disease. Heartworm disease is prevalent in all 50 states in the US during the spring and summer season. Once exposed and infected, it is a difficult issue to diagnose and cure.
Intestinal parasites such as Hookworms, roundworms, and whipworms can also be found in any environment. As a result, your pet’s health can be compromised and are more susceptible of heart failure and other health complications.
Prevention is the best way to protect your pet from intestinal parasites. In general, it is much easier and cheaper to use preventative measures rather than running the risk of infections. Heartworm medication can be prescribed to your pet at one of our clinics, and may also be ordered through our online store with a prescription from your vet. If you suspect your pet may be infected with such disease, please have them tested and treated as soon as possible.
