Learn More About Heartworm

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition affecting pets in the United States and many other parts of the world. It is transmitted by the mosquito and results in foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure and damage to other organs in the body. The length of warm weather and mosquito seasons play a vital part in heartworm disease statistics in the Southeast, along with the burden of flea and tick infestations. Sadly, these dogs have become infected with heartworm disease due to lack of preventive practices by their previous owners.
