You’re probably all-too-familiar with those annoying mosquito bites.
But when it comes to your pet, a mosquito bite can have even more severe consequences than an itchy welt.
Heartworm disease in pets is a potentially fatal condition that’s transmitted through mosquito bites and has been found in all 50 states.
This is why you’ve heard your vet recommend heartworm prevention at each one of your pet’s visits!
While harmful if contracted, it can be treated.
So remember to always keep you pet up to date on monthly heartworm prevention or twice yearly injections because prevention is always the best medicine.
