Deadly Parvo Outbreak in Lowell Area …

Posted: August 19, 2014
*ATTN* There is currently a Parvovirus outbreak in the Lowell area that has killed 15 dogs. 

Please call us at Medfield Veterinary Clinic or our new office at Westwood Vet Care to make sure your dog is up to date on it's distemper vaccine (DHPP or DHLPP, which include Parvovirus) and always clean up after your dog. If going to a dog park, it's a good idea to bring your own water/bowl.

From the Doctors

“Heartworm disease, a serious and potentially fatal condition caused by parasitic worms living in the arteries of the lungs and occasionally in the right side of the heart, has recently become a lot more prevalent in our area. This is in large part due to the number of rescue dogs being shipped to the Northeast from the South. For this reason, we cannot stress enough the importance of keeping your dog up to date on monthly heartworm prevention all year. Also due to the increased prevalence, we recommend testing for heartworm annually since no prevention is 100% effective. ”
