Take the Bite Out of Mosquitos and Heartworms
April 30, 2020If you’ve ventured outside of your home during mosquito season in Indiana, you know those pests are everywhere, just waiting to bite you. Mosquito bites cause more than discomfort. The tiny pests can spread diseases and parasites to both humans and animals. For dogs and cats, the biggest fear is catching heartworms from mosquito bites. If an infected mosquito bites a dog or cat, the baby parasites are transmitted and can grow. Heartworms can cause significant damage to vital organs and even lead to death. Fortunately, you can protect your furry friends against heartworms. This is critical if you live in Fishers, Indiana, or the surrounding area. Learn about the signs that your pet has heartworms, as well as what you can do to protect your beloved pets.

If your pet experiences one of these conditions, life can become pretty unbearable very quickly – both for them and you. Unfortunately, itch-triggering conditions are very common, and we see countless pets each year who are suffering unnecessarily from chronic itching.
