Heartworm prevention

The potential for the spread of disease increases in warmer, mosquito-friendly environmental conditions and the presence of both wild and domestic infected animals that transmit this deadly parasite to both dogs and cats. The American Heartworm Society (AHS) urges veterinarians and pet owners to follow its guidelines, which call for year-round heartworm prevention and annual testing of pets for heartworm infection.

 

At Santa Fe Animal Hospital, we test your pet every other year if your pet is on continuous, year-round heartworm prevention. If not, we test annually.

 

Treating heartworm disease is a difficult process for pets and their owners. It's expensive, and it's not always successful. Prevention is important.
