How Does It Work?

When life gets busy, it can be easy to forget to give heartworm medication to our pets on the exact same day every month.  Fortunately, there is Pawmetto Lifeline's Heartworm Prevention Program!  Heartworm  prevention is so important, as it not only protects your pets from heartworms, but fleas and other parasites too. Our program is a subscription-based service.  Your credit card is charged once a month, or every six months depending on the subscription you choose, and your pet's heartworm medicine comes in the mail.  How easy is that?!  To enroll in our program, we require proof that a heartworm test (dog), or rabies vaccination (cat) has been completed.  If either service has been provided by Pawmetto Lifeline, just let us know the date and we will locate your record.  If either service has been provided by another veterinarian, please email the record to us at prevention@pawmettolifeline.org or fax it to (803) 407-0996.  If a heartworm test, or rabies vaccination is still needed, we would be happy to help!  

 

We have three convenient ways to get your pet's heartworm test, or rabies vaccination administered:
