Heartworm Season


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:
