Heartworm Prevention Prevents Future Heartache

Heartworm, as its name implies, likes to set up house near, and potentially in, the heart. The adult worms sit mainly in the pulmonary artery -- the blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the lungs. The eventual result of an untreated animal heartworm infection is death due to heart failure.

 

Animals with a heartworm infection will often have a cough and difficulty breathing. Fainting and fatigue are other signs that go along with a heartworm infection. As the infection progresses, symptoms of heart failure progressively worsen.

 

It's important to have your pet tested yearly for heartworm, because, sometimes, signs do not develop for several years after infection. Treatment can be risky, but, it’s so easy to prevent heartworm; usually it takes just a pill given once a month.
