It is important to cure your pet. Understanding the disease process and the treatment options available for your pet is the first step. We will evaluate your pet’s general health status and discuss treatment options and the known success rates with each variable.What is heartworm disease and why should we rapidly treat heartworm disease? If your dog tested positive for adult heartworms, there are 6” worms attached to the greater vessels around the heart. When the heart beats, it moves blood at approximately 140 miles per hour; the worms hang on for the ride. These heartworms are slapping the inside walls of your dog’s blood vessels and create damage and scar tissue in these delicate areas.The sooner your dog is treated and clears the heartworm infestation, the sooner he/she can heal and prevent future scarring and damage to the heart valves and major vessels around the heart.Repeatedly our customers tell us our cost of treatment is cheaper compared to most veterinary hospitals.
