September 12, 2008, Newsletter Issue #253: Heartworm Alert

Tip of the Week

If you live in a region with mosquitos, take action against potential heartworm disease in your dog. A female mosquito transmits the disease-causing parasite when biting a dog. Both indoor and outdoor dogs are at risk. Have your dog tested for heartworm, then set up a prevention plan with your veterinarian.

Heartworm disease is easily preventable with these three little steps: a trip to the veterinarian, a blood test and heartworm medication. Make sure you give the medication as directed to avoid this deadly disease.
