Heartworm disease is a serious condition that results in severe lung disease, heart failure, other organ damage, and death in pets, mainly dogs and cats. Heartworm larvae are transmitted to healthy animals by mosquitoes that have bitten infected animals. We are here to provide heartworm testing for your dogs and cats. There are preventative treatment programs that we will guide you on which route to take. This medicine will protect your animal for the rest of their life.

If you haven’t had your companion pet tested for heartworms, schedule an appointment today at Best Friends Animal Clinic by calling (530) 272-2817. We will work with you to determine the best heartworm preventative based on your pet.
