Heartworms - The Invasive Killers


What dog owners should know about Heartworm Disease.

 Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes, not through contact with other dogs or their feces.

 ALL dogs are at risk, regardless of whether they are considered indoor or outdoor pets.

 Signs of heartworm disease may not be visible until its later stages.

 Your veterinarian can diagnose heartworm infection with an easy blood test.

 Treatment for heartworm disease is lengthy and traumatic, and its outcome could be unpredictable.
