Watch: Mosquitoes and Heartworm Disease



Heartworm is a common but dangerous disease that poses a risk for your family’s dog. This parasitic worm is passed from one animal to another in its larval stage via mosquitoes. Once in a dog’s bloodstream, the heartworm makes it way to your pet’s heart and grows and reproduces there. Adult heartworms can reach up to twelve inches in length and, if left untreated, can be fatal. Heartworm disease can be prevented with aggressive mosquito control practices.
