Heartworm Prevention Awareness

Join us in raising awareness about Heartworm Prevention.  One million dogs are heartworm positive every year.  That's 1,000,000 dogs suffering through a potentially fatal disease that is difficult and costly to treat, and yet so simple to prevent. 

  • Mosquitos transmit immature heartworms from infected dogs to healthy dogs.
  • Heartworms live in the hearts and lungs of infected dogs.
  • Left untreated, heartworm disease may be fatal to your dog.
  • Some common signs of heartworm infection in dogs include coughing, difficulty breathing and sluggishness.
  • Recently infected dogs may show no signs of the disease.
  • Other carriers of heartworm disease include wolves, foxes, ferrets, coyotes and raccoons.

Fortunately, heartworm disease is highly preventable.  Ask Dr. Kilar or one of our technicians about options for protecting your dog.
