- Vote for categories that inspire you. THE CATEGORY WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT IN IS "PET CARE"
- Individuals may only vote once per calendar day during the month of April 2017. Voting is limited by email address. If you submit a ballot more than once per day, only the first ballot will be counted. Vote every day of the month.
- Votes that are suspected to be duplicate votes in a given day will be disqualified.
- Vote for just one, vote for a few, or vote for all of the categories. You can vote the same way each day or choose to vote for different categories on different days.
Voting ends when the month of April ends... That doesn't give us much time so please vote and vote daily!
You're a dog owner. Do you know that all 50 states consistently report that dogs are still being diagnosed with the most easily preventable yet deadly parasite?
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
What are they?
• Heartworms live in the heart and blood vessels of the lungs, growing up to 12 inches long.
• Heartworm disease can lead to severe problems with the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys and may result in death.
• Unfortunately, there can be a lack of physical evidence until it’s too late.
• Heartworm treatment is painful for your dog, requires weeks of inactivity, and is expensive – costing up
How are they spread?
• Mosquitoes transmit heartworm disease from an infected dog to a dog not on a heartworm preventive.
• Just one bite from an infected mosquito can lead to heartworms in your pet.
• One million dogs are estimated to be heartworm positive in the United States each year, and dogs in all 50 states have been diagnosed.
How can Heartworms be prevented?
This one is easy.
• Prevention of heartworm disease is less expensive, safer and easier than treatment.
• Given each month, year-round, heartworm preventives can prevent heartworm disease.
• HEARTGARD® Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) is the Real-Beef Chewable that dogs love, so it’s easy to give.
Pioneer Animal Hospital is committed to preventing heartworm disease. We invite you to take advantage of the specials we are offering on heartworm testing and prevention.
