Protect Your Pets Against Heartworms
From April through September, we are offering 5% off on heartworm testing and a 12-month supply of Heartguard Plus (with a coupon for a $12 rebate when the supply is purchased in the hospital).
Heartworm disease is prevalent in Colorado. The larval parasite is transmitted by mosquitoes that then migrate to the heart and pulmonary arteries. Once inside the host, the larvae start to grow, eventually reaching the size of a strand of spaghetti. One mosquito bite can infect your pet with hundreds of larvae. While they grow to adulthood, the worms live in the lung tissue, causing irritation, and the heart struggles as it pumps blood. This leads to heart failure and death. Cats seem to be able to limit the growth of the larvae. However, the larvae do not need to reach adulthood to cause considerable damage to the heart. One heartworm is enough to kill a cat.
Once heartworms are established in dogs, treatment involves a long, expensive course of medication, including multiple injections of Immiticide (an arsenic-based drug) to kill the adult worms. Treatment can be risky, depending on the severity of the disease, and cost upwards of $1000. There is no effective treatment for adult heartworms in cats.
Prevention is inexpensive and painless. Maintaining your pet on a year-round course of Heartguard Plus will help to ensure that your friend does not suffer.
