Huntington Beach, CA Veterinarian, Dr. Gill Educates Pet Owners on Heartworm Prevention

Heartworm disease has the potential to be fatal to pets. It develops from parasitic worms that live inside the arteries in the lung in dogs and cats, as well as other pets, like ferrets. It is transmitted to pets after being bitten by contaminated mosquitoes. Without treatment, a heartworm can grow up to an astounding twelve inches. More seriously, it can block vital heart valves, which pump blood through the body. Veterinarian, Dr. Gill at Adams Pet Hospital wants to educate Huntington Beach, CA pet owners on the importance of heartworm prevention.

The good news is heartworm disease is preventable. That’s why it is important to speak to Dr. Gill in Huntington, CA to take the necessary steps to protect your pet against this dangerous disease. While treatment in dogs for heartworm disease is possible, it is a lengthy process, complicated, and expensive. The better choice is to prevent heartworm disease through the services of Adams Pet Clinic in the first place.

Depending on your preferences, there are a variety of choices you have for preventing heartworm disease in both cats and dogs. These include injectables, topicals, tablets, and even chewables. All of these medications work by disrupting the development of the heartworm before it becomes an adult and travels to the lungs. Dr. Arun Gill urges Huntington Beach, CA pet owners to visit Adams Pet Hospital to have their pets receive protection against the serious repercussions of heartworm disease.
