What You Should Know About Heartworm for Heartworm Awareness Month

Heartworm disease is one of the major health problems of dogs in the United States and throughout the temperate and tropical areas of the world. As well as being found in dogs and other species, it is now being found in cats in ever increasing numbers. The disease develops when a pet becomes infected with parasites called Dirofilaria immitis that are transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito. Heartworms are “foot long” worms that live in the heart and major blood vessels of the lungs. Heartworm disease is spread by mosquitoes to both dogs and cats as well as other animals, such as foxes, coyotes, and wolves, which act as reservoirs and help spread the disease.
