There are many misconceptions about heartworm disease in New Mexico. It is a parasite that does not discriminate between inside/ outside dogs or long/ short hair as it often bites on the nose. The cost of treating heartworms ranges anywhere from $1000-1500.00. The course of treatment is 7 months with restricted activity for 4 months and is hard on the patient. The good news is, it is very easy to prevent. You just need to confirm they are negative with a simple blood test which cost about 34.00, then start prevention which ranges from about $36-80 for a 6 month supply depending on patient size. We recommend that they are on prevention year around. Schedule an appointment today to get your four legged friend tested and on prevention.
