April is Heartworm Awareness Month3039b693c423da423d53629927963a8f


Living in northern New England, most of us assume that heartworm disease is not really a problem up here in a climate where much of the year is relatively cool or cold and several months are snowy. We tend to think of heartworm disease as being a big problem in warmer southern states. The fact is that heartworm disease can be found in all 50 states, and risk factors vary, including climate conditions, wildlife carriers such as foxes, coyotes and wolves, interstate travel of dogs and other pets, and extent of disease-carrying mosquitoes which thrive throughout the US. Furthermore, because infected mosquitoes can come inside, both outdoor and indoor pets are at risk. In sharing the information in this article, we thank the American Heartworm Society, www.heartwormsociety.org, for their educational resources. Click Here to Read More.
