Heartworm Awareness Month

Heartworms are always in season.  April is 'Heartworm Awareness Month'.  The American Heatworm Society reminds us that dogs and cats should be on heartworm preventative medication year round.

Heartworm Disease in Dogs:

  • Dogs are considered the definitve host for heartworms.  When a mosquito carrying infective heartworm larvae bites a dog and transmits the infection, the larvae grow, develop, and migrate in the body.  The now adult worms will reside in the heart, lungs, and associated blood vessels.  The onset and severity of the disease is mainly a reflection of the number of adult heartworms present, the age of the infection, and the level of activity of the dog; the higher number of worms present, the more severe the disease.  Signs and symptoms include cough, exercise intolerance, abnormal lung sounds, enlarged liver, fainting, excess fluid build-up, abnormal heart sounds, and even death.  Diagnosis is typically done through antigen and antibody blood tests.  While there are treatments available for dogs with heartworms, it can be extremely painful and expensive.  Therefore, prevention is the best medicine.

Heartworm Disease in Cats:

  • Unfortunately, cats can get heartworm disease too.  If you live in an area where heartworm infection is prevalent in dogs, your cat is also at risk.  Preventing your cat from getting heartworms is a far better choice than dealing with it once the disease has occurred.  Why?  There is no approved treatment for feline heartworm disease, and it can be fatal.  Symptoms are nothing like those experienced in dogs; the lungs rather than the heart are most affected in cats.  Therefore, cats are often misdiagnosed with asthma or bronchitis.  Once infected, veterinarians can only provide supportive therapy to minimize wheezing and coughing symptoms.  Because there is no approved or recommended treatment for feline heartworm infection, prevention is the best medicine.
