Health Alert - Treatment of Adult Heartworm Infections Not Available

We have a very important HEALTH ALERT to share with you!                   
 
The only drug approved for treatment of adult heartworm infections, Immiticide, is not presently available nationwide due to technical problems being experienced by the manufacturer, Merial. Until Animal Hospital of North Asheville is able to obtain the drug again, we are unable to treat adult heartworms. The manufacturer is not saying when Immiticide will be available again, so


PLEASE DON'T MISS ANY DOSES OF HEARTWORM PREVENTION (Sentinel or Interceptor)!

Since we cannot treat heartworms at this time, it is now more important than ever to protect your dog from heartworm infection. If your pet is not presently on heartworm preventative every month, please call us at 828-253-3393 or email us at info@ahna.net to determine if your pet needs testing before resuming preventative medication. Please administer the once a month pill every month!
