Heartworm medication is due again!
Heartworm feels like a summer disease but mosquitoes are prolific right through September and don't fully taper off until November. That means transmission of heartworm disease can continue to occur as late as November. Ticks and fleas are also still very active at this time of year.
Today is the day to give another dose of the heartworm, flea and tick preventative medication prescribed by your veterinarian. Remember with the transdermal (liquid applied to skin) medications that you need wait at least four hours before giving a bath or letting the animal go outside in the rain.
Our creative team at the Animal Hospital of River Oaks take pride in providing educational information as well as keeping our River Oaks's Families well informed in up-coming events happening at the hospital!
