April is National Heartworm Awareness Month.
It's not too late to get your dogs tested and on monthly prevention.
A false belief is that Arizona does not have mosquitoes. The past several years mosquitoes have been a source of constant complaints to the cities surrounding Phoenix. Calls come in daily reporting swarms of mosquitoes making it impossible for home owners to enjoy the outdoors. That means their pets are also suffering.
It only takes one infected mosquito to infect your dog or cat with heartworm disease. Please read the following link from the American Heartworm Association to learn the basics of heartworm disease and how you can protect your dogs.
If your pet has not been tested for heartworm and is not currently taking a monthly preventative, we have many veterinarians which you can choose from to make an appointment with.
Please see our list and find a veterinarian near you to schedule an appointment. Each profile has their own link that will bring you to their personal business website.
Thank you for being a responsible pet owner!
