Protect Your Pet From Heartworm

It's that time of year again - Heartworm Season - the time of year when mosquito's come out to play. 

Unfortunately, these mosquito's can be harmful to your pet's health.  All it takes is just one mosquito bite to infect your pet through the injection of immature worms into the tissues of its host with mosquito saliva. The immature worms then develop and migrate their way to the lungs and potentially the heart of the animal where they will mature into adults and begin reproducing.

These immature worms can grow to 15-20 cm in length and in severe cases, your pet can be infested with hundreds of worms which may obstruct blood flow to and from the heart causing damage to internal organs.

Don't worry, this fatal process can easily be prevented.

FouFou Dog uses a veterinarian prescribed topical parasticide for dogs called Revolution® (selamectin). 

Each package comes with 6 syringes that look like this.

You simply pop open the top of the syringe using the cap that comes with it and squeeze the contents of the syringe onto the nape of your pet's neck.  The syrum smells a little like rubbing alcohol and will leave a small wet patch on their neck, but dries quickly.  And don't worry, you only need to do this once a month.  I usually apply it on the first of each month from June through November (when Mosquito season is at its peak).

How does Revolution® (selamectin) work?

A: Revolution enters the bloodstream through the skin. Concentrations of Revolution in the blood and tissues prevent heartworm disease. Revolution selectively redistributes from the blood to the skin, where it provides protection against fleas, flea eggs, American dog tick, and mites.

This simple application could save your pet's life; ask your veterinarian about Revolution today.
