Protecting Your Dog from Heartworm and Other Parasites
December 9, 2015
“Prevention Is Better Than Treatment.”
There are many dangerous parasites and insects that can infect your pet. And by the time you notice symptoms like mild persistent cough, reluctance to exercise, fatigue after moderate activity, decreased appetite, or weight loss – it’s already too late.
It takes six months for a dog bitten by a mosquito to test positive for a health issue. And a heartworm can live inside your dog for up to 7 years. That said, parasite protection isn’t just a good idea; it’s the only way to prevent dangerous, dormant disease from affecting your pet!
