Heartworm On The Rise in Phoenix

Heartworm Banner

We have always educated and discussed the importance of heartworm prevention, but with the recent influx of Hurricane Harvey animals, it is more important than ever!!!

We were recently informed of 5 Dobermans transported from Texas to Phoenix, 4 out of the 5 dogs tested positive for heartworm. That is just one SMALL group of dogs coming in and there are hundreds of rescues taking in animals. For every heartworm positive dog/cat brought into our area increases the risk of heartworm greatly. We have been steadily increasing over the past few years, but this will add an even higher risk than ever.

Prevention is the key to protection. One chew/tablet once every 30 days, that's it!!! So simple and affordable. For the most expensive Heartworm Prevention for a 1 year supply it only $11.72 a month per dog!!!! Plus when you buy a 12 month supply you get a $12.00 rebate so you only pay $10.75 a month!!!!! An extremely affordable preventative care that could save your pet's life.

If your dog/cat is not protected schedule your visit with our office as soon as possible. We are here to help protect your pets health and well-being.
