Heartworms are a parasite that can cause severe damage to the heart, lungs, and blood vessels of your pet. If left untreated, heartworm disease can be fatal. The good news is that heartworms are easy to prevent. Prevention consists of using a preventative monthly heartworm medication. This medication kills the larva that would become the deadly adult heartworms.
AMicrochip is roughly the size of a grain of rice and is injected into the tissue beneath the skin on the back of the pet’s neck. The chip contains a number that can be read by a scanner. Most veterinary hospitals, animal control bureaus, SPCA’s, and other organizations likely to receive stray animals are capable of scanning dogs and cats with unknown owners.
