Virtually all puppies are born with some burden of parasites they get from their Mom or the environment. Dogs usually go outside and lick-up parasites or parasite eggs, and become infected. This is why we recommend annual dewormings. Also, all dogs have some level of risk of becoming infected with Heartworm disease across the United States. For this reason we recommend year-round, monthly Heartworm preventative for your dog.
At Utah Veterinary Hospital, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
