Heartworm Season

Share

Heartworm season is once again upon us. Heartworm disease is spread from dog to dog (and cats too!) by mosquitos. If your dog (or cat) is not on a monthly heartworm preventative please see your veterinarian and have a heartworm antigen test performed. This is an inexpensive and accurate test and, if it is negative, it is safe to start your pet on a preventative. Heartworm disease can be incredibly debilitating and even fatal. Preventatives are virtually 100% effective and most protect against the more common gastrointestinal parasites as well! For more information please call us at 212-706-4088 or visit this FDA website:
