The use of heartworm prevention is critical for your pet in the North Carolina area. Heartworms are spread by carrier mosquitos and are very prevalent in our area. It is essential that you have your pet tested yearly. Monthly preventatives will ensure your pet does not die from this serious life-threatening disease.
Mount Airy Veterinary Hospital has convenient in-house testing available for heartworms. From a small sample of blood, we can have results in less than 30 minutes. With a negative test, our doctors will recommend a product that is effective and economical. If prescriptions are used properly, testing is only required annually. Listed below are a few of our popular products, feel free to ask one of our veterinarians or staff for more information.
