Heartworm Prevention Month

American-Heartworm-SocietyApril is National Heartworm Awareness Month, and, by protecting our dogs and cats, we as pet parents can also protect ourselves from the heartache that can come from the loss of a companion or the expensive and difficult treatment due to this preventable health issue.

Established in 1974, the American Heartworm Society strives to stop the spread of the disease through both the distribution of funds for heartworm research and the spread of the information to researchers, veterinarians and the public.  Through a series of infographics and videos the organization arms animal lovers with the knowledge they need to combat this potential pet killer.  Please visit their website here.
