At Indy Paws Veterinary Hospital, we recommend keeping your pet on treatments for heartworm, flea, and tick prevention in Indianapolis throughout the year. This should occur even for strictly indoor pets, as fleas, ticks, and even mosquitoes (which transmit heartworm disease) are all capable of getting indoors.
We recommend regular testing for invisible intestinal parasites and heartworms, as some of these parasites are zoonotic (can be transferred to people). We carry a wide variety of options for preventative medications.
Please discuss your family’s lifestyle with our staff, and we can help you find the best product for your pet.
