Does my dog need to be on heart worm preventative all year long?
Answer: Yes, basically animals need to be protected up to 1 month after mosquito season. Since our weather in Florida is warm and humid it is almost always mosquito season, even in the winter.
Note: If you have never gave or have stopped giving heart worm preventative Do Not start giving it to your animals with out consulting a veterinarian. Testing will be required and not doing so will put your animals life in jeopardy.

Answer: Yes, see our coupon for our special on multi-animal discounts.
Does my indoor cat need to be on heart worm preventative?
Answer: Yes, feline heart worms are carried by a type of mosquito that likes to hang out around the outside of structures. This leads to easy infiltration of the mosquito into the structure by various means. All that is needed is one infected mosquito and you can have an infected cat. Remember there is no treatment for feline heart worms, so please keep your cats on heart worm preventative all year long.
