Going into spring, heartworm will become more and more of a problem for dogs, cats, and other small mammals. It’s common, but it’s also a very serious disease that can have serious repercussions. It’s key to have your pets on preventative treatment and to seek regular testing so that if infection does occur, you catch it early. Testing usually requires taking a blood sample that can be analyzed relatively quickly by veterinarians and lab technicians. If the test is positive, your veterinarian can help prescribe the correct treatment for your beloved pet.

Dogs and cats should both be tested annually for heartworm infection and should be on heartworm prevention medication year-round. Even if you are using medication, you can’t always depend on it. Pets are notorious for spitting out pills, and humans are notorious for forgetting to administer them; both leave your pet vulnerable! Try to set reminders for heartworm medication and testing so that you keep tabs on your pet’s health.

For more information about what you can do to prevent heartworm or to make your appointment, call TLC Pet Care Centers today! Dial (513) 683-2300 for their East location and (513) 825-4011 for their West location. Visit their website to see a full list of services and to get to know their team!
