Information about Heartworms:
Heartworms are transmitted into your pet's bloodstream via infected mosquitoes. The microfilaria develops into larvae, then into adult worms that live in the heart and pulmonary (lung) arteries. Signs include coughing, lethargy, poor hair coat, lung disease, heart failure, or sudden death. This disease is preventable by giving a monthly heartworm pill (topical varieties are also available starting at the age of 6 weeks) for the pet's entire life. Our doctors highly recommend monthly preventatives be given year-round. Also, since treatment is harsh to the pet and costly to the owner, our doctors highly recommend annual blood testing to assure effectiveness.
