National Heartworm Awareness Month

Did you know?…….

  1. Heartworm disease is serious & can be life-threatening to our beloved furry pets.
  2. Heartworm disease can affect dogs, cats, and ferrets. Carriers of the disease can be found in coyotes, wolves, and foxes. It only takes 1 mosquito to transmit the disease.
  3. Most dogs with heartworm disease will show vague to no symptoms at all, until it’s too late. It takes 6 to 7 months AFTER exposure to diagnose.
  4. Treatment for this disease is risky & more expensive (~$1000 on avg) than just giving an ounce of prevention…every month…lifelong…to your beloved pet (~$11/month).
