RSPCA Queensland is reminding pet owners to protect the hearts that love them most - their pets. Heartworm is a serious yet preventable disease, most common in dogs, but cats can contract the parasite also.Heartworm is quite resistant to treatment. Prevention is the best method to protect your pets and avoid serious health issues.

Transmitted to pets from mosquitos, Queensland dogs are at risk of contracting heartworm if owners are not using effective preventatives.  For further info visit www.rspcaqld.org.au

HEATWAVES AND YOUR FUR BABIES

In this hot and humid weather, it is important to keep your pets cool with ample shade and water.

·       Never leave animals tethered as they can get tangled and not be able to reach shade or water.

·       Walks and playtime early morning or late afternoon

·       Never leave pets unattended in cars - they can turn into ovens in a matter of minutes.
