According to the Companion Animal Parasite Council's (CAPC) interactive Parasite Prevalance Maps, Illinois is a high-risk state for Lyme and Ehrlichia diseases. At Wright Animal Hospital, we can perform Heartworm Test checks for these diseases as well as for Anaplasmosis, which is moderately prevalent in our state (but high risk in Wisconsin).
The Lyme vaccination, heartworm, and flea & tick prevention will help protect your pet from parasites as well as these vector-borne illnesses. Schedule your pet for its Spring Parasite Check today! We know it's cold outside, but the nice weather is right around the corner!
