We really do always say it, and it’s true: “The cost of prevention is minimal compared to the cost of treatment”. Heartworm and intestinal parasites are a real threat to your pet, no matter the time of year.

Here at Malletts Bay Veterinary Hospital, we emphasize the importance of eliminating parasites through routine testing and prevention. We regularly screen our patients for intestinal parasites by sending out fecal samples. We can look for heartworm infection with our in-house blood screening, also known as a 4DX, a quick and easy test that gives our doctors results in less than 10 minutes!

Of course, we recommend year-round preventatives, like Sentinel Spectrum and Heartgard Plus, two products we proudly carry here, to keep those nasty bugs out of your pet and out of your mind!
