Heartworm prevention!!!

It has always been strongly suggested by Veterinarians to their clients that their pets be given heartworm prevention all year round in the state of Florida. This disease involves a parasite, transmitted by mosquitoes, that attacks the heart and circulatory system (bloodstream). Aside from the disease being potentially fatal and debilitating it is very expensive to treat. Recently there has been a very important udpate that needs to be addressed. In the past there has been an injectable, easily accessible medication that was used to treat dogs with heartworm disease. Unfortunately this product is on indefinite manufacturers back order which means Veterinarians will be no longer able to treat dogs with heartworm disease for an undetermined amount of time. It is for this reason more than ever that your pets be put on heartworm prevention all year round without missing any doses. Please ask one of our staff members about the many heartworm preventative options we provide.

Thank you!
The Management at DPC Veterinary Hospital
