Heartworm disease is a serious disease that results in severe lung disease, heart failure, other organ damage, and death in pets, mainly dogs, cats, and ferrets. A parasitic worm called, Dirofilaria immitis, causes this disease. These worms are spread through a mosquito bite. The dog is the definitive host, meaning that the worms mature into adults, mate, and produce offspring while living inside a dog.
