With the beginning of a new spring season, all pet owners should be thinking about getting their furry friends tested for heartworm disease, and putting them on a yearly preventative.

The good news is that heartworm disease is preventable. And it's far less expensive to prevent than it is to treat. 

This Heartworm Awareness Month, please talk to us about which prevention products are best for your pet. We also recommend annual screenings, even if your pet is already on heartworm preventatives. Call us at (203) 322-0507 today!
