April is National Heartworm Awareness Month!

Heartworms are transferred by mosquitos. A mosquito will take a blood meal from an animal that has heartworms and when it takes a blood meal from another animal, it transfers the heartworms. It takes several months before the heartworms can show up because of their development cycle.

Heartworms will grow in the heart of your dog, causing the heart to enlarge and will ultimately lead to the suffering and death of a pet.

Heartworm is easily preventable through the use of a monthly preventative heartworm medication. You can get these from your veternarian, who can also do an annual heartworm test to make sure your dog stays heartworm free!
