Cinema Veterinary Centre wishes to alert all of it's clients that we have had a confirmed case of heartworm infection in a canine patient of ours. While Santa Clarita is "low-risk", it is still here in the area and it is important to make sure you have your pets tested yearly as well as have them on monthly preventatives. If you travel with your pets to areas with mosquitoes or known to be "high-risk", please consider routine heartworm prevention as well. The treatment is long and expensive - it is easier to prevent than treat! Please call us if you have any questions or concerns. 1-661-253-9300.
