Preventative Care

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

We individualize your pet’s care. Some pets are strictly indoor pets, while others spend more time outdoors with more exposure to diseases. We understand that vaccines can , by themselves, cause problems, so we try to balance what is truly best for your pet. Also, some people may have stricter budgets and need our help as a team effort to balance their pets needs with what you can afford.

Our goal is to keep your pet healthy and happy.

Heartworm Disease


Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in dogs. It is caused by a worm called Dirofilaria immitis. Adult heartworms live in the heart and pulmonary arteries of infected dogs. They survive up to five years and, during this time, the female produces millions of young (microfilaria). These microfilaria live in the bloodstream. As many as 30 species of mosquitoes can transmit heartworms. The female mosquito bites the infected dog and ingests the microfilariae during a meal. The massive number of heartworms residing in the heart then causes inflammation of the lungs and heart failure.

Cats can also get heartworm disease, although much less commonly
