It's Heartworm Season!

One mosquito bite is all it takes....will your dog be protected? 

Although more prevalent in the Southern U.S., more and more cases of Heartworm disease are being diagnosed every year in Canada. Here in Quebec, we get a break from the infectious parasite more than half the year thanks to cold temperatures and snow, but, when the weather starts to get warmer, and mosquitos emerge, that is when our pets are at risk.


Before starting a preventive program, all dogs that could have potentially been infected with mature heartworms should have a blood test done to detect any microfilaria.

Recommended products for Heartworm prevention:

Advantage multi, Heartgard, Revolution, Trifexis.


Please contact us for more information or to schedule
an appointment for a heartworm test.


Heartworm disease can be difficult, risky, and costly to cure, however, prevention is much safer and more economical. Your dog can be given a preventive treatment at the beginning of Heartworm Season destroying any possible microfilaria from a mosquito bite from being able to develop and reproduce. Certain products will repulse mosquitos and ticks on dogs and can act as a dog flea control.

Heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) is transmitted to your pet through a mosquito bite. Without prevention, irreversible damages to the heart and lungs are possible.
