Do Not Let a Mosquito Break Your Pets Heart! Protect Them from Heartworms

It takes one bite from an infected mosquito to break your pet’s heart!



Boyce & Berryville pet owners - Heartworms are a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets. Foot-long worms live in the heart, lungs & blood vessels of infected pets, causing lung disease, heart failure, organ damage and can be fatal if untreated.



How does my pet get heartworms?  Heartworms living in an infected dog, cat or wildlife produce baby worms that circulate in the bloodstream. When a mosquito bites an infected animal, it picks up these worms and when it bites another animal, the worms enter through the bite wound. Heartworms can grow and live for 5 – 7 years in dogs and 3 years in cats.



Heartworms



How prevalent is heartworm disease?  Heartworm disease is a year-round problem. In Virginia, 1 in 130 dogs tested positive. 



What can I do to protect my pet? Heartworm disease is preventable! Dogs should be tested annually and before starting prevention. Prevention is the safest and most cost-effective option, but treatment is available for dogs (although costly & lengthy). Cats should be tested before starting prevention and re-tested as the veterinarian deems appropriate. There is NO treatment in cats, so prevention is critical and the only means of protection.



Heartworm



Roseville Veterinary Clinic has safe, effective products available that cater to you and your pet's lifestyle and budget and should be administered year-round to protect your pet:




  • Heartgard is a tasty chew given monthly to dogs to prevent heartworms. (Purchase 12 months of protection and receive $50 rebate and receive 50% off your heartworm test!)


  • Revolution is applied topically monthly to cats to protect against heartworms plus kills fleas & treats roundworm and hookworm infections and ear mites. 





Keep your pets safe from this deadly but preventable disease!



Call us at 540-837-1334 now for their heartworm test and to discuss the best prevention options for your pets.
