Asheville, NC pet owners - It takes one bite from an infected mosquito to break your pet's heart!

What are heartworms?  Heartworms are a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets, particularly in Asheville with the prevalence of mosquitoes. Foot-long worms live in the heart, lungs & blood vessels of infected pets, causing lung disease, heart failure, organ damage and can be fatal if untreated.

How does my pet get heartworms?  Heartworms living in an infected dog, cat or wildlife produce baby worms that circulate in the bloodstream. When a mosquito bites an infected animal, it picks up these worms and when it bites another animal, the worms enter through the bite wound. Heartworms can grow and live for 5 - 7 years in dogs and 3 years in cats.

How prevalent is heartworm disease in Asheville?  Heartworm disease is a year-round problem.  In Buncomb e County - 1 in 49 dogs tested positive for heartworms. 

What can  I do to protect my pet from heartworms? Heartworm disease is preventable! Dogs should be tested annually and before starting prevention. Prevention is the safest and most cost-effective option, but treatment is available for dogs (although costly & lengthy). Cats should be tested before starting  prevention and re-tested as the veterinarian deems appropriate. There is NO  treatment in cats, so prevention is critical and the only means of protection.
