Heartworm disease is a potentially deadly infestation of the parasite Dirofilaria immitis. Once an animal is infected, the treatment to kill the heartworms is costly and painful. Failure to treat heartworm disease may result in heart failure and/or serious disease of the liver and kidneys. Untreated heartworm disease is usually fatal. Luckily, heartworms are easily prevented with a once monthly chewable!
Dogs are considered the definitive host for heartworms. However, heartworms may infect more than 30 species of animals (e.g., coyotes, foxes, wolves and other wild canids, domestic cats and wild felids, ferrets, sea lions, etc.) and humans as well. When a mosquito carrying infective heartworm larvae bites a dog and transmits the infection, the larvae grow, develop and migrate in the body over a period of several months to become sexually mature male and female worms. These reside in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels. As mature adults, the worms mate and the females release their offspring (microfilariae) into the blood stream.
During the month of May, we have two different rattlesnake vaccine savings plans!
For your animal's first vaccine, in order to be fully protected, they will need an initial vaccination as well as a booster in one month. Both of the vaccines will cost ONLY $60! That is a $10 savings!
For those needing an annual booster, we didn't forget about you either! We are offering a $5 savings, making the annual vaccination only $30!
Living in beautiful Colorado, we are all too aware of the dangers associated with rattlesnake bites! By getting your animal vaccinated, you are decreasing the severity of the bite's toxin. Benefits of the vaccines are that it allows more time to get to a veterinary hospital, it reduces the amount of pain and swelling experienced and provides faster recovery times.
