April is Heartworm Awareness Month. What better time to learn more about this infection, than today?
As Texas gets hotter and mosquito populations grow, the risk of infection increase dramatically. Treating heartworms can be costly and painful for your dog. From personal experience, it’s heartbreaking to see a dog go through that pain. Between meds, shots, and crate rest, it can be an ordeal for the entire family.
Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. There are so many low cost vaccination and prevention options out there. From local mobile vets to shelter wellness clinics to your current veterinarian, there are affordable options for all.
