Prevention is the Best Medicine!

Did you know heartworm disease is preventable?

Did you know that treating heartworm disease is much more expensive than giving your pet a monthly preventative?

The average treatment of heartworm disease can range from $1000-$1500.

A pet that is diagnosed with heartworm disease can have life-long damage to their heart, lungs and internal organs. Not only is treating heartworm disease expensive, the treatment itself is harsh for the pet and requires months of injections and multiple veterinary visits. This also includes limiting their exercise for months and months while they go through treatment.

If your pet is not on heartworm prevention, don’t wait! Schedule an appointment to get them tested and start their heartworm prevention.
