Heartworm disease is a major problem for dogs in our area. For this reason, it is important for owners to understand a little about the disease, treatment, and the prevention.
Heartworms do not always cause a problem until they are adult worms. They can grow up to twelve inches as an adult. At that point, they live in the right side of the heart and the lungs. Affected dogs can have lung disease and heart failure.
Treatment is necessary or death will occur. However, as the heartworms die, they can cause even more problems so it is important to watch dogs carefully through the treatment process. There are times when more than one treatment is needed.
Fortunately, heartworms are preventable. Here at EVA-Woodforest Veterinary Medical Center, we recommend preventing heartworms instead of dealing with the consequences. We believe in a once a month chewable. It is much easier than dealing with the heartache of losing a beloved dog to heartworms! Preventable heartworm medications also help to keep your dog healthy by taking care of intestinal parasites.
The idea of your pet being infested with parasites is a disturbing thought, but it’s also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not properly dealt with or prevented. Parasites pose a variety of health issues for our pets, who can be very susceptible to certain parasites depending on age, region, and other factors.
At EVA-Woodforest Veterinary Medical Center, we emphasize the importance of preventing parasites. Through preventative measures, you can successfully protect your pet. Pets that are not protected often develop parasites, leading to serious problems for them and their owners.
The cost of prevention is minimal compared to the cost of treatment, which can be expensive and stressful on your pet. Parasites like heartworm can even be fatal, so preventing parasites is of the utmost importance.
