Important Notice Regarding Heartworm and Flea & Tick Prevention ~ The Village Vet

Important Notice Regarding Heartworm and Flea & Tick Prevention!

Year-round heartworm prevention has been nationally advocated for many years, since the heartworm preventatives cover not only heartworm, but also prevent many intestinal parasites. These parasites are commonly found in the environment even during the coldest winter months. Some of those intestinal parasites can be transmitted to humans, especially young children, and may cause major health issues. Therefore, keeping our dogs on year-round heartworm prevention has important health benefits to both dogs and their humans.

Please also note we have seen tick attachments on pets even in January! Ticks can transmit Lyme disease and are active any time the environmental temperatures go above 40ºF. It is advised to keep our dogs on a year-round flea and tick prevention as well.

We will be happy to discuss these current recommendations with you and help find the best prevention approach to suit your pet’s needs.
