Now is the perfect time to make sure your best friend is protected from the dangers of fleas, ticks and especially potentially life-threatening heartworms that mosquitos can carry. Call today and ask us about the safe, convenient injection that provides 6 or 12 months of protection from heartworm disease for your dog and peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to remember monthly medication.
Keeping your dog safe is as easy as 1-2-3:
1. Be Aware!
The American Heartworm Society (AHS) reports that more than a million pets in the U.S. have heartworm disease—with cases diagnosed in all 50 states. Don’t let your dog be a statistic! The AHS has designated April as Heartworm Disease Awareness Month. Ask us about the dangers right here in our area.
2. Take the Test
In the early stages, many dogs show few symptoms of heartworm disease—some no symptoms at all! A new Harris Poll says that of the 55 percent of owners who provide their dog with heartworm disease preventatives, only 43 percent have their dog tested for heartworms.1 If your dog hasn’t been on a regular heartworm disease preventative, we can conduct a quick, safe and easy heartworm test and then help you select the best preventative for your canine friend.
3. Protect for the Long Run
Monthly preventatives are effective—as long as you remember to give them. We all have busy lives, and even the most conscientious owners can forget a dose. One missed or even delayed dose of heartworm preventative puts your dog at risk. The AHS recommends year-round heartworm preventative for all pets. We can take the worry out of protecting your dog with just 2 injections a year.
