National Heartworm Awareness Month - blog post image

National Heartworm Awareness Month

April is Heartworm Awareness Month!

Heartworm disease is a potentially life-threatening condition caused by parasitic worms that can live in the heart and lungs of dogs, cats and other mammals. The good news is that you, the owner, can easily prevent it by giving your pet medication. However, owners must be vigilant to help ensure that their pets are properly protected... from this dangerous disease.

Only mosquitoes spread heartworms, so areas, such as southwest Louisiana, with a large mosquito population will have a greater incidence of heartworm disease. Heartworms can cause severe damage to the hearts and lungs of an infected pet.
