Heartworms are invisible threats that invade your dog’s pulmonary arteries and adjacent blood vessels. Without treatment, this disease is fatal to your beloved pet. Caused by a parasite known as Dirofilaria immitis, heartworm disease can lead to lung and heart failure. It is most common in the Gulf and Atlantic coast, but it has been diagnosed in all 50 states in the U.S. The good news is that heartworm is preventable. To combat this serious illness, Heartgard is prescribed.
