Last weekend on March 20th marked this years Spring Equinox, the day we commonly say goodbye to winter and welcome back the longer days and warmer weather of spring and start to look forward to summer. While it is nice to have spring showers bringing the spring flowers, there is a downside to this seasonal change and that is the reemergence of dangerous parasites like Heartworm that threaten the lives of dogs and cats.
Heartworm is a common disease that has spread all over North America and is particularly endemic in certain regions. The parasite is spread by mosquito’s so now that its spring and the mosquito’s are soon to back in full force it’s time to look at how to protect your pets from developing the serious complications associated with heartworm disease. Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition that is caused by parasites that your pet can contract in their bloodstream from mosquitoes. The parasite grows in your dog and can slowly weaken your pet, robbing them of their health and in the end can shorten their life significantly. Responsible pet owners that protect their animals from heartworm through a preventive product can also reduce the rates of heartworm because mosquitoes can only pass on the parasite through biting infected animals. Heartworm can be treated but because the common mosquito spreads it and veterinarians often only see symptoms once it has reached a more advanced stage, it’s often undetected for years. The treatment used to combat an infection is risky, very expensive in terms of vet bills and is often ineffective in the end. For these reasons it is smart to look to prevent heartworms before your pet is infected.
