As a pet owner, you look forward to the warmer spring weather because it means you can finally spend more time outdoors with your furry friend. Unfortunately, it also means more exposure to environmental hazards for your dog or cat. This requires awareness of these dangers and active steps on your part to help your pet avoid them.
The heartworm parasite presents a serious and sometimes fatal threat to companion animals. Unfortunately, it is not difficult for your pet to be infected, and it’s difficult to treat in dogs. There is no heartworm treatment for cats.
Although most pet owners take excellent care of their dog or cat, many often overlook tooth brushing and scheduling regular professional cleanings.

The Glencoe Veterinary Clinic veterinary team encourages you to strongly consider the importance of dental health for your pet.
