Pet Tips of the week

Importance of heartworm preventative

Heartworms are a serious worm-like parasites that gets into your pet's heart.  Heartworms can be carried by mosquitoes and be passed on to your pet. The tiny immature heartworms are transmitted through the bite of the mosquito. They first enter through the dog's tissue, then they occupy the heart.  They will grow and reproduce inside the heart make the blood harder and harder to move through the heart. When other mosquitoes bite your infected pet, the mosquitoes will then pass it on to others.  If left untreated, heartworm disease can result in congestive heart failure and failure with other organs.

Signs of heartworm disease

 Signs may not show until the disease is progressive and the heartworms have reproduced multiple times. Some signs however are having a persistent cough, listless, tire easily, and can become anemic.


 The best treatment is preventative. It can get costly with treatment due to hospitalization and injections given. So it is best if you give monthly preventative like Heartgard, Revolution, and etc. or a 6 month injection of Proheart.
