Heartworm Disease has been found in pets in all 50 states, including Virginia.
Dogs and cats are vulnerable to Heartworm Disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. As anyone who is familiar with southern Virginia knows, we have a mosquito problem. As a result, we also have a heartworm problem.
Heartworms not only live in the pet’s heart, they also migrate to the lungs. And although a dog can harbor over a hundred worms in its body, it takes only a single adult worm to cause a fatal inflammatory reaction in a cat.
Adult Heartworms can grow up to 12 inches long
Adult Heartworms can live 5-7 years
A dog can have as many as 250 worms in its body
