Heartworm

Heartworm use to be a disease only found in the northern states. As weather patterns have changed, we have seen heartworm cases spread all down the east coast over the past few years. Recent tests have shown positive tests in fox populations as close as Glenoroura and Puckapunyal (recent tests show 7% of the fox population is thought to be infected with heartworm).

Flea treatment and prevention is important in both warmer and colder months. In summer the warmer weather is perfect for flea populations to explode. In winter, when we have out heaters turned on, we create the perfect breeding nest for fleas inside. The best way to ensure your pets are free of fleas is to provide continual protection year round.
