Heartworm disease is disease transmitted by mosquitoes. It can be serious and potentially fatal. It is caused by parasitic worms living in the arteries of the lungs and occasionally in the right side of the heart of dogs, cats and other species of mammals, including wolves, foxes, ferrets. Dogs and cats of any age or breed are susceptible to infection. Help prevent heartworm disease TODAY by giving us a call at 803.407.9691
