Preventing Heartworm in Pets
The idea of your pet being infested with heartworms is a disturbing thought, but it’s also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not properly dealt with or prevented. Heartworms pose a variety of health issues for our pets, who can be very susceptible to certain parasites depending on age, region, and other factors. It can even be fatal.
At Premier Veterinary Hospital, we emphasize the importance of preventing heartworm. Through preventative measures, you can successfully protect your pet. But pets that are not protected often develop parasites, leading to serious problems for them and their owners.
The cost of prevention is minimal compared to the cost of treatment, which can be expensive and stressful on your pet. Heartworm can even be fatal, so protecting your pet is of the utmost importance.
