Every Pet Should be Tested for Heartworm Annually
At VetIQ Petcare, it’s our goal to help you provide your pet with quality healthcare. That’s why we believe that every dog and cat, as part of their routine preventive care, should be tested annually for heartworm disease. Heartworm is a serious disease with few, or no noticeable symptoms during the early stages of the disease.
Heartworm Life Cycle
A mosquito bites an infected dog (or other infected animal) and ingests blood that contains tiny heartworm larvae.
The tiny heartworm larvae go through an incubation period and become transmittable and infective within 2-6 weeks.
The mosquito bites a dog and the heartworm larvae enter the dog’s tissue and eventually the blood stream.
Without protection from a heartworm preventative, the larvae continue to develop and ultimately reach the dog’s heart, pulmonary arteries and lungs.
Protect Your Pet with Two Simple Steps
Step 1 – Annual Heartworm Test
Get your pet tested annually for heartworm. This applies even if you pet is/has been on a year-round heartworm preventative.
Step 2 – Year-Round Heartworm Protection
After receiving negative test results (meaning your pet DOES NOT have heartworm disease) ensure your pet is on a routine 12-month heartworm preventive program, even for pets that live in dry climates or regions that experience cold weather and snow during the winter months.
Heartworm Disease Has Been Confirmed in all 50 U.S. States
©2016 American Heartworm Society: Severity of heartworm incidence is based on the average number of cases per reporting clinic. Some remote regions of the United States lack veterinary clinics, therefore there may be no reported cases from these areas.
