Did you know that 42 dogs tested positive for heartworm in Washington County last year? Our local mosquitoes are carrying this disease from pet to pet right here in Hillsboro!

April is Heartworm Awareness Month and according to the American Heartworm Society (AHS), the incidence of heartworm across the country is up. That’s why it’s so important to have your pet tested each year, and to give monthly preventatives all year round. You can learn more about this deadly disease at this link on the AHS website.


Dr. Healey talks to KATU news about heartworms and preventing Heartworm Disease in pets. View full story here.


Make sure the pet you love is protected! We have many different types of heartworm preventatives available at Hillsboro Veterinary Clinic, and we can help you decide which one is best for your animal companion.
