Heartworm Testing for Heavy Silver Ferrets

Like cats and dogs your heavy silver or pewter ferret should be on a heartworm prevention program in order to avoid contacting heartworms. If you’re not sure if he is on a program, contact your vet. Your ferret should also go in for annual wellness visits and be tested for heartworms as well. A simple blood test can detect the presence of heartworms. If your ferret tests negative then a heartworm prevention plan can be started. If your ferret tests positive for heartworms, immediate and aggressive treatment will be started. Your ferret may not be able to start a prevention program until the heartworms have been cleared and his blood test returns negative. Heartworm disease is a dangerous disease that can be fatal if not monitored and treated properly. For more information about heartworms and how to protect your heavy silver ferret, please call your vet care North Phoenix, AZ.
