Heartworm disease is one of the deadliest conditions seen at Airport Animal Clinic and yet is preventable in both dogs and cats. Heartworms are transmitted when a mosquito bites an animal that is infected with heartworms and then bites an uninfected animal, such as your dog or cat. The heartworms mature in the body of the newly-infected animal and cause numerous deadly conditions in not only the heart but also the lungs and arteries.
Airport Animal Clinic carries heartworm preventative products for both dogs and cats, and each medication has been hand-selected by our veterinarians based up safety and efficacy of the drug. Our stocked pharmacy includes heartworm preventatives that can be taken orally, applied topically and an injectable product which lasts six months.
The prevention of heartworm disease is always more effective and less expensive than it is to treat. You’re your precious pet tested for heartworm disease, and then place them on a preventative that is right for the lifestyle of you and your beloved pet.
