Border Animal Hospital shared American Heartworm Society's video.4 weeks ago
Checkout this ultrasound video from the American Heartworm Society. Shown are adult heartworms in the tricuspid valve. Both Canine and Felines are at risk, and it takes only one mosquito carrying microfilaria "baby heartworms" to bite your pet and deposit the microfilaria.

Here in the RGV, we have mosquitoes year round, so to prevent your pet from getting heartworms, they need to be on a heartworm prevention year round for life.

Call 956-968-3858, and find out how to get your canine or feline pets on year round heartworm prevention, and let Border Animal Hospital help you keep your pets happy and healthy.

Border Animal Hospital shared CATalyst Council's post.1 month ago
Did you know? ... Cats age more rapidly than humans, and are masters at hiding illness.
Sometimes we overlook our feline babies, and they deserve just as much veterinary care as their canine siblings.
Come in today or call 956-968-3858, and let us help you keep your kitty cat, happy and healthy.
