April Is Heartworm Awareness Month

So spring has supposedly sprung, although it's hard to tell judging by the weather we are having in Boston today - more snow and sleet! Nevertheless, soon enough it will so hot that we will all be complaining about the heat and humidity. That weather, of course, brings out all the nasty bugs that like to bite me and my dogs - yum for them.

April has been declared Heartworm Awareness month.

Heartworms are life threatening parasites transmitted by mosquitoes, so it's even more important to make sure your dogs are taking their heartworm medication this time of year.
