National Heartworm Awareness Month


April is National Heartworm Awareness Month!  As the weather warms up this spring, it’s important to take steps to protect your pets against heartworm disease.

Heartworm disease is transmitted through infected mosquitoes that then bite your pet.  Both indoor and outdoor pets are at risk of heartworm disease.

Here are a few signs to be on the lookout for this spring.

Signs of Heartworm Disease:

  • Coughing
  • Asthma-Like Attacks
  • Periodic Vomiting
  • Lack of Appetite
  • Weight Loss
  • Difficulty Walking
  • Fainting
  • Seizures
Visit the American Heartworm Society website to learn more about the signs of Heartworm Disease and what you can do to protect your pet.  You can also contact one of our veterinary offices if you suspect that your pet is suffering from heartworm disease or you are looking to take steps to prevent it this spring.
