Upland Animal Hospital is open 7 days a week. Our Veterinarian is available Monday through Sunday. We are closed major holidays. We offer bathing, toenail trimming and grooming (only for medical reasons) with or without sedation. We know the cost of pet care is a concern, so therefore we always provide estimates for services and will explain in detail about recommended procedures beforehand.
Even though Southern California may not be endemic as far as Heartworm infections in dogs, we have never the less diagnosed the parasite on a number of occasions in dogs from this area. Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes and live in the heart of dogs, less common in cats, and cause symptoms of heart failure. The parasite is easy to prevent, much more difficult to treat. We recommend Heartgard Plus which is a chewable “treat” that is given once a month for as long as you want your pet protected. We recommend Heartworm testing once a year; even in dogs that are current on Heartworm prevention.
