Protect your pooch
A common case we have been experiencing in clinic is heartworm positive dogs.
Heartworm is contracted through mosquitoes and it is very easy to prevent by either giving a tablet, spot-on treatment, or injection once a month, every three months or annually depending on the type of prevention your choose to give.
Early symptoms of heartworm in dogs are:
- Mild persistent cough
- Reluctance to exercise
- Fatigue after moderate exercise
- Decreased appetite
- Weight loss
If left untreated, heartworm can cause heart failure and result in death. Heartworm can be detected by performing a simple 10 minute blood test in clinic.
