April is Heartworm and Lyme Disease awareness month.

Infected mosquitoes transmit Heartworm disease to dogs and cats. To protect your pet, they should be tested once a year for Heartworm Disease and be given heartworm prevention once a month.

Ticks are out and about. Any day that is above freezing is a day that they are looking for a meal. Protect your pet against Lyme Disease by using Nexgard or Frontline Gold once a month as well as vaccinating them against lyme disease. To set up an appointment please call 630-543-9500.
