Heartworms

 Does my pet really need heartworm prevention?

YES!!!!!  Heartworm disease is serious and very painful and expensive to treat.  It is easily prevented.  Heartworm prevention for dogs should begin at 8 weeks of age and given every 30 days year round.  Cats should also be protected from heartworms beginning at 9 weeks of age and applied monthly year round. There is no treatment for heartworm disease in cats. Heartworm prevention should be applied to indoor cats as well, as the mosquito vector has been known to come indoors. Please take the responsibility to protect all your beloved pets.
