Pet Frequently Asked Questions in Belleville, IL

Do I need to get my dog heartworm blood tested every year?
It is important to get your dog a heartworm blood test at least once a year. In accordance with FDA recommendations, our doctors highly recommend yearly blood tests even if your pet is on the preventative medicine year round. If the preventative was missed for one or two months, it is possible that your dog became infected with heartworms, therefore the blood test is imperative. Ask your veterinarian for more information.
