Heartworm: Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes and, once mature, they live in the heart and large blood vessels of the lungs.

  • We follow the American Heartworm Association's recommendation of heartworm prevention to be given year round to prevent infection.

  • Annual testing is recommended.

  • If you choose to stop over the cold weather months a heartworm test must be run 6 months after the first skipped dose to ensure that the patient did not become infected over the winter.
