APRIL IS HEARTWORM DISEASE AWARENESS MONTH--GET A FREE HEARTWORM TEST!
It only takes one mosquito to infect your dog (or cat)… Heartworm disease is a serious problem caused by a parasite that is transmitted to cats and dogs via mosquitoes. "Heartworm is present in just about every area of the United States," says Dr. Donald W. Doiron, president of the American Heartworm Society. This includes Arizona!
A small female mosquito spreads the disease when it bites an infected animal and ingests very tiny larvae that live in the blood. Eight days to a month later, when the pest bites a healthy pet, it deposits the larvae, which mature and travel through¬out the dog's body. Over time, the heartworms can interfere with and damage your dog's heart, and subsequently other vital organs, by blocking the flow of blood.
Remember, it only takes one mosquito to infect your dog. Indoor-only dogs still make quick walks or trips to the backyard, which make them just as likely to get heartworm. Mosquitoes have a way of squeezing themselves through small openings in screens, doors, and windows - if they've previously fed on any infected dogs and cats in the neighborhood, they can transmit that infection to your pet.
Although heartworm is very dangerous and can be fatal, there is hope for our furry friends. The best thing you can do to help your dog stay healthy indoors as well as out is to get him tested, be vigilant about giving heartworm prevention medication regularly, and visit us for regular checkups.
During the month of April, all dogs that have had an exam within the last year can get a FREE heartworm test with the purchase of 12 months of preventative! This is a simple blood test that only takes a few minutes, so schedule today!
