If you live in Houston, Texas or any of the southern region, your dog must be on heartworm preventative year-round.
If your dog is unprotected now, Neartown Animal Clinic in Houston can do a quick blood test to check for heartworms. If the test is negative, we can get your dog started on heartworm prevention asap.
*Cats can also get heartworms but there is no treatment. Your best bet is to keep your furry felines on Revolution for heartworm and flea protection.
