April is Heartworm Prevention Month!

Here at All Creatures Vet Clinic we carry an array of Heartworm preventatives available for dogs.
Heartworm prevention is very important for our furry friends since the incidence of heartworm disease is becoming more common in the Wisconsin/Minnesota areas, due to the amount of mosquitoes that thrive by the Mississippi River. Remember that you furry friends will need a blood test done around the age of 6 months and yearly after that to make sure they haven’t picked up any tick borne disease as well as checking to make sure they don’t test positive for heartworm.
