Heartworm is a serious and often fatal disease affecting dogs and cats and even other species of mammals. Dogs and cats of any age are susceptible, which is why prevention is so important. Without proper prevention, pets are at risk of contracting this potentially deadly disease.

Heartworm disease has been found in all 50 states. Mosquitoes infected with the disease bite a dog, cat or other susceptible animal causing ineffective larvae will mature into adult worms. These worms live in the heart and arteries or lungs causing extensive damage and sometimes death.
How to prevent Heartworm Disease?
Heartworm prevention is safe, easy and inexpensive. We offer Heartguard Plus which is a monthly chewable medication treat for dogs and Revolution a liquid medication for cats that you apply to the skin. these medications interrupt heartworm development before adult worms can reach the heart or lungs and are available here at our clinic.
