HEARTWORM FAQ'S

Q: What is heartworm disease?
A: This disease affects dogs and occurs when an infected mosquito bites your dog. The mosquito passes a very immature stage of the heartworm that then matures into adult male and female worms living inside your dog's major blood vessels in the lungs and the heart. It takes approximately 6-7 months for the worms to mature. The adult worms cause damage to the blood vessels that can lead to severe lung disease and heart failure.

Q: How can I protect my dog from getting heartworms?
A: You can help protect your dog from developing heartworm disease by giving a heartworm preventive prescribed by your veterinarian. It is important you follow the directions of your veterinarian and the product. Your veterinarian will need to perform a simple blood test before starting your dog on prevention.

Q: Which heartworm prevention should I choose for my dog?
A: All heartworm prevention products are highly effective when given according to their label directions. The best heartworm preventive product for you and your dog is the one you both will be the most compliant with. Talk with your veterinarian about which one is right for you and your dog.

Any further questions or concerns please call us at 713-723-6427

The FDA has issued a warning regarding Duck, Chicken, and Sweet Potato jerky treats made in China. Serious kidney disease can occur. 3,600 dogs have fallen ill and at least 600 have died. Unfortunately not all jerky treats are required to be labeled where they are made or what they contain. Best advice would be to avoid all Jerky treats at this time. Call our office 713-723-6427 for any questions or concerns.
