As pet owners, we want to make sure that our animal friends remain safe, healthy, and happy. In order to do this, pet owners should look into veterinary care, particularly for parasite prevention. Infestation from fleas, ticks or heartworms poses a serious and even fatal health risk to our pets.
Dirofilaria immitis occurs when foot-long worms invade the heart, lungs, and blood vessels of an animal. Heartworm disease could have a serious impact on your pet, potentially leading to heart failure, lung disease, and organ damage. When left untreated, heartworm disease could prove to be fatal. Cats, dogs, and ferrets are popular targets of this disease.
Pet owners don't have to allow their loved ones to suffer through a parasite infestation. Here are some preventive measures you can take for heartworm, flea, and tick prevention.
For those pet owners curious about heartworm prevention or treatment, please give the Animal Emergency Centre a call at (818) 760-3882. Our veterinary center is offering quality care to the pets of Studio City, CA.
