Heartworm season is coming, is your pet protected?

What is heartworm and why should your pet be protected against it?

Heartworm is spread by mosquitoes that are infected with the heartworm disease.  When a heartworm positive mosquitoe bites a dog the larvae are left on the skin and migrate and eventually enter the blood vessels.  It takes approximately 6 months for the infective larvae to grow into mature heartworms and begin procreating.  Adult heartworms can live 5-7 years in a dog.  Unfortunately, they live in the pulmonary vessels of the heart, which can wreak excessive damage on a dog's heart and lungs.  At Lakeside AH we suggest to get your dog heartworm tested every other year.  The prevention should be given during the summer months because that is when mosquitoes are most active.
