Heartworm Treatment

Heartworm prevention is essential.

Heartworm is a worm that lives within the dog's heart and is spread by mosquitoes. It is now found in all parts of Australia. Heartworm is potentially fatal and can be difficult to treat.

A heartworm prevention program should be started from the time of first vaccination.

Puppy heartworm protection

Your vet will advise the most suitable method of heartworm prevention based on your pet’s unique circumstances.

Heartworm preventative injections at time of vaccinations are a safe, effective method of heartworm control that ensures protection. 

If you miss any heartworm treatment(s), please contact the clinic for advice on restarting your program.  

If your pet is not currently receiving heartworm treatment, please contact us.
