Did you know that one mosquito bite can transmit heartworms to your dog as well as to your cat? Rivertown Animal Hospital uses the most accurate and reliable heartworm tests available to determine whether or not your four-legged friend may have heartworm disease. Prior to prescribing a preventative, you animal should be diagnosed negative for heartworm disease. Our tests take only ten minutes and you can have peace of mind before you leave our clinic.
