Dr. Karri McCreary, co-owner of the Greenville Animal Hospital, says dog owners should be more vigilant about preventing heartworms in their pets.  Heartworms are spread by mosquito bites, and from dog to dog. Dr. McCreary says heartworm preventative medicine is relatively inexpensive.  She says she's also seeing a lot of problems this summer with fleas and ticks.
