April is Heartworm Awareness Month!
During Heartworm Awareness Month, pet owners are encouraged to take steps to protect their pets from heartworm disease. This includes getting their pets tested for heartworms regularly and administering preventive medication to protect against infection.
Pet owners are also encouraged to educate themselves about the signs and symptoms of heartworm disease, which can include coughing, difficulty breathing, fatigue, and weight loss. Early detection and treatment are essential for improving the chances of a successful recovery from heartworm disease.
Heartworm Awareness Month is an important time to be reminded of the importance of preventative care and the steps you can take to keep your pets healthy and happy.
Be sure to speak with your veterinarian about heartworm prevention and to schedule regular heartworm testing for your pets to ensure they stay healthy and free of heartworms.
