Meet Featured Pet, Gizmo!

Gizmo is an 2-year-old female pitbull mix. A stray that was found earlier in the year, Gizmo was brought to us for her first exam by new pet parents when they discovered she had heartworm. Today, she has completed heartworm injections but is on restricted activity. Her next step is a heart worm test in roughly 5 months, to verify that the treatment has worked. Despite all that Gizmo has been through recently, she is a happy girl!


Checking for heartworm is an important step in ensuring your pet‘s well being, If you feel your pet needs to be checked for heartworm, make sure to contact us at Island Animal Hospital.
