PRESCRIPTION
HEARTWORM PREVENTATIVE MEDICATION

LIFELONG PREVENTION BEGINS
NO LATER THAN 
12 WEEKS OLD 
All it takes is ONE infected bite

Carter Veterinary Clinic has an in-house, fully stocked pharmacy with our favorite, dependable heartworm preventatives available for immediate purchase.  Heartworm medications are by prescription only and are not sold over-the-counter.  Speak with us today about your pet's specific needs and get started on preventing your pup from this deadly disease today.  

If your puppy is over 6 months old and hasn't been started on Rx heartworm medication, please contact us to schedule testing and examination so preventative treatments can begin.

Heartworms are a preventable, but serious and potentially fatal disease that can only be transmitted by mosquitos. When a mosquito bites an infected animal, young heart worms called microfilariae enter into that mosquito's system.  Within two weeks, the microfilariae develop into infective larvae inside the mosquito which can be transmitted to another animal when the mosquito takes it's next blood meal.

HOW DO HEARTWORM PREVENTATIVES WORK?

Heartworm preventative medications kill immature heartworm larvae and prevent them from reaching adulthood. If owners routinely skip doses or choose not to place their pet on Rx heartworm preventative medications, immature heart worms will reach adulthood.  Puppies begin preventative medications at 12 weeks of age and prior to any present heartworm larvae reaching adulthood.  

RX PREVENTATIVE MEDICATIONS KILL IMMATURE HEARTWORM LARVAE.  THEY DO NOT KILLESTABLISHED ADULT HEARTWORMS.  AN ADULT HEARTWORM'S LIFESPAN IS 5-7 YEARS

Once your pet has an established, adult heartworm infection, the only way to treat this disease is through costly heartworm treatment, which slowly kills off adult heartworms.  Adult heartworms can reach lengths of 14 inches and damage the blood vessels, and reduce the heart's pumping ability, resulting in severe lung and heart disease, which can be fatal.  Catching this disease early is extremely important in preserving the life of your pet.
