Prevention & Early Detection

At Marcello Veterinary Hospital, we recommend annual testing for heartworms and a lifelong preventive treatment program for companion pets. Testing for the presence of heartworms is quick, easy, and economical, and preventive treatment is much more cost effective than medical care for an infected animal.

Heartworm disease is a life-threatening condition that can affect outdoor and indoor pets. Spread by mosquitoes, heartworm larvae are transmitted to healthy animals by mosquitoes that have bitten infected animals.

This disease can result in heart failure, severe lung disease, damage to other organs, and death. Preventive treatment and annual testing at Marcello Veterinary Hospital are key to keeping your pet healthy and heartworm-free.
