3 Important Things to Do for Your Dog Right Now!

Now is the perfect time to make sure your best friend is protected from the dangers of fleas, ticks and especially potentially life-threatening heartworms that mosquitos can carry.

Keeping your dog safe is as easy as 1-2-3:

1. Be Aware!

The American Heartworm Society (AHS) reports that more than a million pets in the U.S. have heartworm disease—with cases diagnosed in all 50 states. Don’t let your dog be a statistic!  It only takes one infected mosquito bite to give your pet heartworms.Heartworm disease

2. Take the Test

Vet The Woodlands

In the early stages, many dogs show few symptoms of heartworm disease—some no symptoms at all!  If your dog hasn’t been on a regular heartworm disease preventative, we can conduct a quick, safe and easy heartworm test and then help you select the best preventative for your canine friend. 

3. Protect for the Long Run

Monthly preventatives are effective—as long as you remember to give them. We all have busy lives, and even the most conscientious owners can forget a dose. One missed or even delayed dose of heartworm preventative puts your dog at risk. The AHS recommends year-round heartworm preventative for all pets. We can take the worry out of protecting your dog with just 2 injections a year. Vet The Woodlands
