Heartworm disease is very prevalent in the Gulf Coast region. Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes. Year-round prevention is strongly recommended by our doctors. We offer a variety of preventions including Proheart6, Advantage Multi, and Tri-Heart Plus. Fleas and ticks also pose a problem in our climate, so we offer Advantage II, Comfortis, and Seresto collars to combat this life cycle. Our staff and veterinarians are happy to discuss your options and make a recommendation based on each pet's needs.
