Tick and heartworm season!

Spring is finally here and with the arrival of spring comes those pesky parasites, ticks and mosquitoes. Are you prepared for tick and heartworm season?

We recommend heartworm testing mid-April to mid-May, at which point you can pick up your heartworm prevention medication for the season. It’s a simple, inexpensive blood test which can detect four infections (Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichiosis and heartworm disease) in one blood sample and results are obtained in less than 10 minutes.

For more information about heartworm and why testing and prevention is so important, please watch this video below.

Call today to book your appointment to get your dogs tested!
Don’t forget about your cats! They don’t need to be tested, but they still need protection!
