  • Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition in dogs.
  • It is caused by worms that spend their adult lives on the right side of the heart and the large blood vessels that connect the heart to the lungs
  • It is transmitted through infected mosquito bites
  • Dogs of all ages are susceptible to infection
  • Signs range from no sign at all to persistent cough, fatigue, fainting and weight loss
  • Heartworm disease is usually detected with a blood test
  • Treatment is an expense for the owner, and a painful, prolonged ordeal for the dog
  • Prevention of heartworm disease is recommended versus heartworm disease treatment
