For the month of April, we will be giving a $5 discount to owners who opt to get a heartworm test (which also screens for Lyme exposure) and who purchase a 6 month supply of heartworm prevention. Heartworms are spread through infected mosquitoes and Lyme disease comes from infected ticks. Both mosquitoes and ticks are rampant in North Carolina and it is very important to keep pets on heartworm and flea/tick prevention year-round. Unfortunately there is no cure for Lyme disease, we can only help manage the symptoms that come with the disease. For heartworms, there are treatment options, however they can be very costly. It is best to keep pets on prevention to ultimately avoid being put in either of these situations. We always have rebate coupons on various preventatives, so be sure to ask a staff member about our current rebates next time you stop by our office.
