I am very lucky to have parents that give me a monthly pill to prevent heartworm disease! Heartworm disease is transmitted by mosquitos and can be passed even to dogs that live indoors (think about it, have you seen a mosquito in your house.) Heartworm disease can be fatal if not treated. Riverview Animal Hospital has heartworm tests that they can run in house with results in just minutes. Diagnosing the disease earlier can lead to a better prognosis. Even better is preventing the disease! Riverview Animal Hospital has different heartworm preventitives, call to set up an appointment to discuss heartworm disease and to get your pet tested.
