Heartworm Prevention

SUPERIOR PARASITE PREVENTION FOR YOUR DOG OR CAT

As a dog owner, the choice of Heartworm protection shouldn’t come down to “he loves his monthly treat.” Selecting the appropriate prevention should be about protection for your pet, your family and your pocket from the ill and costly effects of a parasite infection.

For our cat owners, it has never been more important than now to protect your furry feline family members. Unfortunately, even our indoor cats are at risk for contracting heartworm here in South Florida. Heartworm disease, which is transmitted by mosquitos, manifests itself differently in cats than it does on dogs. Canine counterparts have treatment options but for the felines there is only prevention. With this in mind, the doctors and staff at VCA Stirling Square highly recommend that all cats be placed on monthly heartworm prevention.
