March’s Monthly Special: Heartworm Prevention

Hearts should be filled with love, not worms!


Heartworm disease is a life-threatening condition, but fortunately, it is easily prevented. It only takes one bite from an infected mosquito to spread the heartworm parasite to your pet. It migrates through the blood stream and settles in the heart, arteries and lungs, where the adult worms can live for up to 7 years. Dogs and cats of all ages and breeds are at risk. There is no approved treatment available to cure cats with heartworm infections. A monthly, year-round pill or topical medication is an affordable way to make sure your pet is safe from heartworm. Some products also protect against other harmful parasites, such as intestinal worms, fleas, ticks or mites. A simple blood test can confirm that your pet is heartworm-free. Then, depending on your lifestyle, the proper prevention will be chosen. During the month of March, get $6 OFF six doses of heartworm prevention or $12 OFF twelve doses of heartworm prevention. Let us know if you would like an e-mail or phone call reminder so that you don’t forget to protect your pet all 12 months of the year.
