To stay in compliance with the American Heartworm Society guidelines and all pharmaceutical company policies we are requiring a yearly heartworm test to stay on heartworm prevention. Because of high rates of heartworm exposure dogs, we feel this is the best medicine we can provide for your pet.
Did you know that not just warmer temperatures, but humidity is needed to sustain the mosquito population to transmit heart worms. As most of you know, who grew up in Indiana, we are very humid state most of the year. We only have less humidity in our homes because we keep them airtight to the outside most of the time in the wintertime. Because of this humidity as well as our temperature going up and down, heartworm transmission can occur all year round.
