Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal parasite also known as Dirofilaria immitis. If left untreated, heartworms may cause severe lung disease, heart failure and internal organ damage. Dogs of all ages are susceptible to heartworm disease. Once infected with heartworm, dogs may suffer from life-long internal organ damage. Fortunately, we have excellent products for the prevention of this disease which is transmitted by mosquitos.
