Heartworm Disease

Heartworm Disease InformationDog Heartworm Control Comparison Chart
Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition that dogs and cats are susceptible to. Each bite from an infected mosquito can introduce heartworm larvae into your pet’s bloodstream and infect an unprotected pet. Once infected, parasitic worms develop and live in the arteries of the lungs and in the heart. Clinical signs of heartworm disease may not be recognized in the early stages, as the number of heartworms in an animal tends to accumulate gradually over a period of months. Heartworm prevention is safe, easy and inexpensive, making the disease almost 100% preventable in dogs and cats. Once-a-month oral remedies include Heartgard, Heartgard Plus, Interceptor, Iverhart Max, Iverhart Plus and Sentinel. Once-a-month topically applied solutions include Advantage Multi for Dogs, Advantage Multi for Cats, Revolution for Cats and Revolution for Dogs.

Symptoms of heartworm disease can include:

  • Cough
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Lethargy
  • Reduced or Excessive Appetite
  • Reduced or Excessive Water Intake
  • Marked Weight Gain or Loss
  • Difficult or Discolored Waste Elimination
  • Abnormal Discharge
