Part of Hill Country Animal League’s mission is to educate our clients about pet wellness. The American Heartworm Association is a great resource for learning more about this deadly disease.

“Every three years, the American Heartworm Symposium draws researchers and veterinarians from all over the world to present, hear and discuss the latest scientific information on heartworm disease. These presentations are also published in a peer-reviewed proceedings, and the information is shared with the wider veterinary community through the communications efforts of the Society.”

This disease is can be prevented by getting an annual heartworm test and giving your pet a monthly heartworm preventive. Most preventives are a chewable treat they will love.
