If your pet has not been on heartworm prevention we strongly recommend you speak to us about a heartworm test prior to starting a prevention program.
We recommend the Proheart SR-12 injection for all dogs. The injection is given based on your dog’s bodyweight. In puppies, the injection is given at 12 weeks of age, then 6 months of age. This is to account for your pup’s growth and change in bodyweight over time. Once adults, the injection is given once a year, often at the same time as vaccination.
We recommend Bravecto Plus Spot On treatments for all cats. This spot on application is based on weight, and provides coverage for 2 months. If applied continually, it will provide protection again heartworm, intestinal worms, fleas and paralysis ticks.
