If your dog will never leave our area, Claremont/Upland/Rancho, you probably don’t need to. The mosquito that transmits heartworm disease in dogs is not commonly found here. So why over-treat? Natural essential oil insect repellents may be all your dog needs.
But if you plan to travel or camp with your dog, you should contact veterinary offices in the areas you plan to visit and find out if heartworm is a problem there. Then you can plan necessary heartworm prevention treatment with your local veterinarian before you travel. Waiting until you get back from a heartworm infested area can be risky for your dog.
Whatever heartworm solution you need, we can help.
