The Ugly Truth About Heartworm in Dogs

Chewable medication for heartworm in dogs.

Pet owners with active and healthy dogs do not always realize that even their canines are susceptible to heartworm disease. Heartworms are parasites that take up residence in your pet’s heart, in their lungs, and the blood vessels that lead to both. Heartworms in dogs will multiply, infesting these vital organs, and can cause tremendous damage. Without proper attention, they will eventually be fatal.

When it comes to keeping pets healthy, vaccines and parasite prevention are critical. Unfortunately, many owners of indoor-only cats are under the impression there’s no need for this type of care since their cat is “never” exposed to anything. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Cats don’t need to go outdoors to come into contact with a surprising number of viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Indoor cat vaccinations and parasite protection can make all the difference for your feline companion.
