Testing For Heartworm Disease

Heartworm is a serious disease for your pet. It’s important to ensure that heartworm prevention is up to date. Testing for heartworm is simple, fast, and potentially life-saving.

Heartworm is a parasite that is transmitted by mosquitos and infects both cats and dogs. The parasite matures in the pet’s organs for six months, becomes a worm, and then migrates to the heart and the blood vessels of the lungs.

For dogs, there are almost no signs of heartworm until heart failure. Not only is this condition highly fatal, but treatment for cats and dogs can be complex – so prevention is key.

Book your pet in for a heartworm test to make sure that they are heartworm free.
