Canine heartworm disease is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito. Mosquitoes infect dogs with a parasite which infests the heart. If left untreated, canine heartworm disease can lead to congestive heart failure in dogs. Dog heartworm disease is preventable through the use of routine doses of medication. It’s important to have a dog tested for heartworm before beginning these medications. Some monthly tablets also aid in the prevention of other worm infestations as well. Speak with your veterinarian and ask which heart worm prevention is best for your pet.
